Consumer Class Actions for Deceptive Acts and Practices
It is not uncommon for businesses to defraud consumers through deceptive acts and practices, such as bait-and-switch marketing schemes, false advertising or misleading financial offerings. If you have been the victim of these practices, you have a powerful recourse available to you: a class action lawsuit.
What is a Consumer Class Action Lawsuit?
A class action is a type of lawsuit that offers large groups of consumers the ability to sue a company collectively. The class action mechanism can be especially useful when the damages suffered by any one consumer are too small to justify a lawsuit. Taken together, however, relatively small damages suffered by hundreds, thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of consumers can be joined legally into a single, cost-effective action.
Leverage Strength in Numbers
Class action lawsuits in a state or federal court are typically initiated by an individual or a few persons on behalf of a larger group of people who have suffered similar losses.In consumer class actions, those losses occurred as a result of business practices that violated consumer protection laws in some way. In fact, it is likely that you have already been a party in a class action case at some point in the past involving corporate deceptive acts and practices such by companies such as mobile phone operators, automobile manufacturers, mortgage brokers, home appliance dealers or toy makers.
