What Is Consumer Protection?

Consumer protection consists of laws that have been put in place to make sure that consumers are treated fairly. The laws also ensure that trade is fair and that information within the marketplace is accurate. Consumer protection lawsuits can help ensure consumers are treated fairly and prevent companies that engage in fraud and unfair practices from gaining an advantage over other companies.

Debt collection violations and data breaches are two common areas of consumer protection law disputes.

Debt Collection Violations

Debt collectors have to follow certain rules when collecting a debt. If they do not follow the rules then they will commit a debt collection violation, and in these cases, individuals are well within their rights to seek legal help from an experienced team of lawyers such as ours.

Did You Know? Debt collectors must not communicate with a consumer in connection with the collection of any debt without the prior consent of the consumer given directly to the collector, or the permission of a court.

Handling A Variety Of Consumer Issues

If you have been the victim of a consumer protection violation then seeking the help of a lawyer is the way to go. Our lawyers have experience in a range of consumer protection-related cases that include fraud, debt collection violations and FACTA violations. We have worked to protect the rights of lower-income hospital patients who were wrongly denied charity care they were eligible for, when hospitals did not inform them of its availability. We have pursued and obtained justice for patients after medical liens were wrongly used against them. Whatever consumer exploitation scheme has affected you, let us hear about it. In turn, we will explore with you the legal options available to you.
