Without the proper safeguards in place, some Houston businesses may take advantage of consumers to cut costs. There are certain legal protections that are intended to temper this kind of behavior, but these protections from unethical actions are ineffective unless they are enforced.
If you have been harmed by a defective product, swindled by unfair business practices, or taken advantage of by a company in any other way, send a message to the party responsible that they cannot continue to hurt those who support them by filing a legal suit. The experienced Houston complex business litigation attorneys at Williams Hart in Houston may fight to recover what you have lost due to negligent or unethical businesses.

- Consumer Protection Laws: Designed to protect individuals from being taken advantage of by dishonest schemes, tactics, or practices
- Consumer Product Safety Commission: Protects consumers from owners or manufacturers who issue dangerous products onto the market
- Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act: Guarantees straightforward and enforceable guidelines regarding warranty practices
