Generally speaking, people owe a duty to protect others from harm. In other words, they must do what a reasonable and prudent person would have done under the same or similar circumstances to protect others from harm.
When a person fails to fulfill this duty, and others suffer injuries as a result, that person is “negligent.” The person may be required, under North Carolina law, to pay compensation for the harm he or she has caused.
At Teddy, Meekins & Talbert, P.L.L.C., our role is to determine whether you or a loved one has suffered injury due to the negligence of another person, company or government agency. If so, we will work diligently to pursue the compensation you deserve.
