When commerce is robust in our state, all North Carolinians prosper. However, sometimes businesses can take it a step too far and harm the consuming public.

The law in North Carolina intends to protect consumers from fraudulent or unfair conduct by businesses. At Horton & Mendez, so do we.

Enforcement of the North Carolina Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act, found in N.C. Gen. Stat. § 75-1.1, is a means for righting the wrongs of businesses and people that seek to take advantage of consumers. A wronged party has a right to file a civil action to help maintain ethical standards of dealings between persons engaged in business and the consuming public, and to ensure good faith and fair dealings between buyers and sellers at all levels of commerce.

All levels of commerce are protected. In other words, bad conduct is actionable no matter the size of the violation or damages involved. The law also provides for the potential recovery of attorney fees, which enables attorneys to take on cases that involve a small amount of financial harm or damages. To even further dissuade unfair conduct, the law allows for “treble damages” that requires courts to multiply damages by three when a violation is found and damages are owed. Still, some people and businesses persist and push the envelope too far.

When you believe you have been treated unfairly in a business or other covered occurrence, contact the North Carolina unfair and deceptive trade practices attorneys at Horton & Mendez. Our consultations are confidential and free. Call us today.
