Consumer Rights Lawsuits
The most common infractions on consumers happen when they are at their weakest point. They can be vulnerable and taken advantage of, sometimes without even realizing it.
The worst thing you could get from a company is false advertising or some other form that violates your rights as a consumer because these occur the moment we're human beings who have been weakened by emotional vulnerability; for example, during times of depression which make us more susceptible to outside influences than any time in our lives.
- Defective products (drugs, vehicles, toys)
- Fraud (billing, security)
- Breach of warranty
- Breach of privacy
- Unfair or deceptive practices
Individuals are not powerless when they have been wronged by a business or corporation. They can take action under federal laws and state statutes to protect their rights as consumers, whether it is filing on their own in court or participating in class-action lawsuits with other individuals who may also be seeking justice for the same wrongdoing.
Deceptive Trade Practices Under the DTPA (Also Known as Consumer Fraud)
The DTPA prevents many of the methods that some sellers use to trick or defraud consumers into purchasing items. For example, failing to tell about a feature or quality which could negatively affect a consumer’s decision is dishonest and violates this law. There are dozens types of fraudulent sales practices listed in its laundry list including false endorsement, bait-and switch tactics, pyramid schemes etc
The Defective Trade Practices Act (DTPA) prohibits many of the deceptive tricks buyers often encounter when making purchases from vendors who have hidden agendas. The act regulates prohibited trade practices like knowing concealment - not telling customers important things they need to know before buying their product; misleading advertising claims - such as exaggerating features/qualities so much that it might lead.
The DTPA protects consumers in many other ways. For instance, there are advertising practices that are forbidden by the act; for example: bait and switch advertising, using untrue endorsements or statements about manufacturing materials used on products (false claim advertisement), lying to customers about a product's abilities/services available through misrepresentation of another company., etc...
Many businesses purchase insurance to protect themselves from deceptive trade claims. When a business makes a claim because the insurance company has denied or underpaid them, our consumer protection attorneys may be able to help by filing an appeal on their behalf and withstanding any challenges that arise in litigation against these insurers. We have stood up for many different clients across diverse industries and understand how they operate- which could mean all of the difference when it comes down to winning or losing your case!
