In a claim for breach of contract, a complaining party must show: (1) the parties entered into a contract; (2) the contract created duties; (3) one party breached the duties; and (4) another party sustained damages. Shelton Ins. Agency v. St. Paul Mercury Ins. Co., 848 S.W.2d 739, 744 (Tex. App.–Corpus Christi 1993, writ denied). The injured party must prove the damages claimed resulted from the breach. McKnight v. Hill; Hill Exterminators, Inc., 689 S.W.2d 206, 209 (Tex. 1985). With regard to contract interpretation, the court’s primary concern is to determine the parties’ intent as expressed in the contract and to give effect to that intent. P Enterprises v. LaGuarta, Gavrel; Kirk, Inc., 596 S.W.2d 517, 518 (Tex. 1980).
