Different Types of Consumer Protection Issues

Consumer Protection laws are in place to protect people from deceitful or fraudulent business practices. The main focus of these laws is to protect consumers' health and safety as well as to help them make informed choices when purchasing products.

Businesses can seek to sell products under false information or they may falsely advertise products in order to make their next sale. When a business puts their financial interest in front of your health and safety, they have violated your consumer rights.

Whether you are a victim of consumer fraud, a business scam, or have a products liability claim it is wise to seek the advice of a skilled consumer protection attorney as soon as possible.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Top Questions to Ask a Lawyer

  • What is the usual process to resolve my case? How long will it take to resolve this?
  • What are likely outcomes of a case like mine? What should I expect?

An experienced lawyer should be able to communicate a basic "road map" on how to proceed. The lawyer should be able to walk you through the anticipated process, key considerations, and potential pitfalls to avoid. Once you've laid out the facts of your situation to the lawyer, he/she should be able to frame expectations and likely scenarios to help you understand your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney's track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
