When a business is unjustly enriched, they are given benefits or compensation that they did not rightfully earn.

In this video, we discuss Amazon and the unjust enrichment claim made by sellers. We also cover the benefits and compensation that Amazon receives as a result of this claim.

If you are an Amazon seller, you may be wondering if you can file a claim for unjust enrichment.

I’ll explain what the cause of action is, and some of the benefits and compensation you may be able to receive if your case is successful.

Unjust enrichment is a complaint made against an individual or company which claims that they were benefited in some way that the plaintiff expected to be compensated for and was not. Benefits to the company can include a growth in brand, increased sales, free advertisement, etc. and it is usually one of multiple claims being filed together. Recovery for unjust enrichment usually occurs when only one party has not fulfilled his part of a contractual agreement or if an agreement did not exist for the work which occurred.

In litigation handling unjust enrichment, the party will claim that they invested time and effort into the company and have not been adequately compensated for their contributions to the success of the product or company. At the same time, the company or individual being faulted will argue that the plaintiff was rightfully paid for what they provided.
