Q: Is there any cases where I can find details about damage claims in a contract
for example: Courts also look at the price of the contract in determining whether certain damages for breach of that contract are proper. A lack of proportion between the two numbers is an indication that the requested damages are improper. In other words, if a party is only be paid a small amount of money in exchange for its services under a contract, courts may take that as an indication that the small payment for services was not intended to expose that party to large financial risk if it breached the contract.
There are, but “damages” is a broad subject, where there are different types of damages, such as compensatory, punitive, consequential, among others. If this is for general knowledge or research, you can find a great deal of information on the subject of damages. If this is for an actual real-life situation, an attorney in your jurisdiction could probably provide more meaningful guidance regarding damages in a contract matter.
