West Palm Beach Consumer Protection Lawyer

Federal and state laws prohibit companies from engaging in deceptive acts when marketing products, advertising services, and using personal information. You have rights as a consumer if you’re harmed by misrepresentations, fraud, and related misconduct.

Our West Palm Beach consumer protection lawyers at The Pendas Law Firm are committed to seeking all available remedies if you suffer losses due to a violation of relevant statutes. We can explain your legal options after reviewing the details of your claim, so please contact our office to schedule a consultation today. 

We Handle a Wide Range of Consumer Protection Law Claims

There are multiple laws at the federal and state level that protect consumers by prohibiting deception, misrepresentations, and dishonesty by companies offering goods and services. Various government bodies are tasked with enforcement, but many statutes also provide a private right of action for the individuals who are harmed by misconduct.

Our team represents clients in connection with all major consumer protection laws, such as:

Consumer Transactions: Companies are prohibited from making false or deceptive statements in marketing, so they can be held accountable for engaging in misconduct with respect to:

  • Warranties;
  • Product returns;
  • Refunds;
  • Conditions regarding gift cards;
  • Online shopping;
  • Subscription services; and,
  • Other consumer transactions.

Lemon Laws: Purchasing a vehicle is a big deal, especially when the transaction involves financing amounts that run into the thousands. Florida has a lemon law to protect consumers when buying a car, but dealerships often presume that consumers don’t know their rights regarding refunds, repairs, and replacements of defective vehicles.

Online Fraud: Many consumers go online to browse, compare, and buy products, but there are risks with these arm’s length transactions. Companies may engage in fraud or misconduct related to sharing personal data and financial information. Others avoid implementing essential security measures to protect you from identity theft. 

Banking and Financial Protection Laws: Laws on consumer transactions are intended to safeguard your assets and your personal information, including your credit history, debts, and financial details. You have legal remedies if a company improperly disseminates or reports your data. There are also statutes that prohibit misconduct by creditors and collections agencies when attempting to collect from you on a debt. 

Your Rights in a Consumer Protection Law Claim

If a company violates consumer protection statutes and you suffer harm as a result, you have legal remedies in addition to filing a complaint with the relevant government agencies. Our attorneys can assist with litigation to enforce your rights. You may be entitled to:

  • Monetary damages to compensate for your financial losses, plus interest;
  • Equitable relief, where applicable;
  • Court costs and filing fees;
  • Attorneys’ fees; and,
  • Other remedies depending on your circumstances.
