What is Consumer Litigation?

Consumer litigation seeks to protect your consumer rights, both in and out of court. Every case and every client is unique, but typical issues in consumer ligation include the following:

  • False advertising
  • Unfair and fraudulent practices
  • Improper, excessive, or hidden fees
  • Online scams
  • Breach of contract
  • Fraud in auto-renewal programs
  • Charging for services never provided
  • Violation of consumer protection laws

Most consumers eventually recognize if they have been scammed, but not all consumers know that these deceptive market practices are an infringement of their rights. When you purchase a product or service, you enter into an agreement with the company or supplier. If the product or service is found to be deceptive in some way, this agreement has been breached, and you may be able to claim damages. This is when it becomes important to reach out to a consumer litigation attorney.

Consumer Protection in Florida

Your rights when purchasing a company’s product or service are explicitly stated and protected in Florida. Consumer laws in Florida are meant to protect residents from scams, enforcing their rights against corporations. The statues found in the Florida Deceptive & Unfair Trade Practices Act cover consumers’ rights in the marketplace. They are intended to safeguard you, the consumer, in a wide variety of commercial transactions. These consumer protection laws in Florida adhere to the Uniform Deceptive Trade Practices Act, protecting the rights of any consumer to file suit. Banned behavior varies based on the industry, but typically includes such actions as deceptive advertising, product tampering, or hidden fees.

Protection Against Hidden Fees

 Most companies that offer online services present potential users with a user agreement. This is standard practice. However, large corporations often act deceptively during this process, misleading you into agreeing to pay fees that were ‘tacked on’ to the agreement in a misleading way. In fact, in some cases, the fees were completely hidden — until the time comes for you to pay them, of course.
