Commercial Litigation: Consumer Protection

Mar 31, 2020 | Commercial Litigation

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 & Boundas in Houston may fight to recover what you have lost due to negligent or unethical businesses.
Protections for Consumers Under the Law
Most cases regarding consumer cases in Houston find a basis for litigation through the following legal protections:

  • 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

Our Houston legal team also represents groups of individuals who have been wronged in similar ways by the same party through consumer class actions. To see if your case qualifies you to join, contact us today.

Taking a stand against a company who has been negligent or unethical may prevent others from becoming victims. A Houston commercial litigation attorney at Williams Hart & Boundas may be able to seek justice and compensation from the business that took advantage of you.
