A remedy is the solution or amelioration of a problem or difficulty.
In law, a remedy is the legal means employed by a court to help a party recover a right or obtain redress for a wrong. The law of remedies distinguishes between a legal remedy (i.e., monetary damages) and equitable remedies, such as injunctive relief or specific performance. A third type of remedy is declaratory relief wherein a court determines the rights of the parties to an action without awarding damages or ordering equitable relief.
