& Data Breach
When a company is deceptive, makes false claims or omits important information about a product, its consumer customers are victimized. State and federal laws protect consumers from these unfair and untruthful business practices by regulating the way that businesses can advertise, promote, sell their products and protect their customers’ data.
Consumer protection claims are brought by private plaintiffs across many industries in courts across the country. Because most consumer claims are small when compared to the cost of litigation, the class action mechanism is the ideal tool consumers can use to achieve justice. Typical consumer protection class actions involve violations of state consumer protection laws, misrepresentations in advertising, fraud, violations of unfair business practices laws, breaches of warranty and contract laws, and product liability.
