Consumer Fraud Attorney
Our consumer fraud attorney knows that it is common for insurance companies, banks, investment firms, and other financial institutions to violate consumer laws. These laws may involve lending, sales, investments, or other business practices.
Large corporations sometimes sell poorly manufactured or defective products that lead to consumer injuries or property damage. Other times, companies engage in misleading advertising and/or fail to disclose certain fees to consumers.
f you think you have been victimized by bank fraud, false advertising, a faulty product or a shady investment deal, you may be able to hold the responsible party accountable in court by filing a consumer fraud lawsuit.
Consumer Fraud and Class Action Lawsuits
Consumer fraud lawsuits and consumer fraud class action lawsuits are civil actions filed by one or more individuals. These lawsuits are brought by individuals on behalf of themselves or a group of similarly situated individuals that have been victims of consumer fraud. Our consumer fraud attorney is experienced in both individual and class action consumer fraud actions.
The function of a consumer fraud class action lawsuit is to secure a judgment that eliminates the wrongdoing or injury to the involved individuals. A class action lawsuit seeks compensation on behalf of class members for their suffering and often involves hundreds or thousands of similarly situated plaintiffs. When a consumer fraud class action is certified by a court, it allows all the claims to be adjudicated in one trial.
Common Instances Of Consumer Fraud
Consumer fraud involving insurance: It is expected that insurance companies take care of their policyholders when they suffer injury, experience property loss or are subjected to other circumstances where insurance coverage applies. All too often, when tragedy or a loss occurs, insurance companies will say that the claim is unwarranted or the loss is not covered, and flat out refuse to pay those covered by the policy. Consumer insurance fraud is serious, and our experienced consumer fraud attorney will fight to protect your rights and the rights of all similarly situated consumers.
