Consumer fraud comes in many forms and has been estimated to cost citizens of the United States billions of dollars each year.
With the rise of national chains or large businesses, it has become very difficult for a victim of consumer fraud to resolve disputes without using the legal system.
It used to be that disputes could be resolved through a simple conversation with the owners of a small or family-owned business. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case.
Consumer protection cases typically challenge defective products, false advertising, bait and switch deceptive business practices, invasion of privacy, illegal fees, and violations of various laws enacted to protect the rights of consumers.
As consumer fraud typically violates the rights of hundreds or thousands of individuals, such cases can often be brought as class actions. Consumer class actions serve many important functions.
