What does a breach of contract involve in North Carolina?

Businesses in North Carolina often make an agreement between one another that is meant for mutual benefit. They typically use contracts when working together to outline who is responsible for what and the details of the entire agreement. If one of the businesses fails to hold up its end of the bargain, it can be to the detriment of the other, costing both time and money. Some businesses will decide to file a breach of contract lawsuit against a former business partner. Those who do may have questions about precisely what is involved.

Who can be held liable for medical malpractice?

Many North Carolina patients seek treatment from their health care providers under the assumption that they will receive proper and timely treatment due to their care providers' experience and knowledge of medicine.
