Officious Intermeddler Law and Legal Definition

Any person who voluntarily, and without any request or pre-existing legal duty, interjects oneself into the affairs of another, is an officious intermeddler. The person should also seek remuneration for services done. Officious intermeddler has no legal right for remuneration. However, if the person who benefited from the services feels to provide compensation, the person can receive remuneration for the service provided. In case of a doctor who treats a patient who is unconscious or invalid this rule does not apply. Here, the patient is liable to pay the doctor for services rendered.
