Deceptive Business Practices Lawsuit Lawyer

When a company uses deceptive business practices to mislead consumers or charge them unfairly, it can have a widespread impact on the marketplace. Consumers and other ethical businesses in the same industry are harmed by the unfair methods used by a company to increase their profits. Class action lawsuits against corporations that use deceptive business practices can protect consumers and level the playing field for a fair competitive market.

There are strict laws against deceptive trade practices that are enforced at both the state and federal levels. These laws are meant to protect consumers from companies that would use misleading advertising or product descriptions to sell their products or charge hidden fees for services the consumer may not want or ever receive. They also prohibit companies from unfair business practices that can harm other companies in their industry. When a business is found to have broken these laws, causing harm to their customers or other businesses, a class action lawsuit for deceptive trade practices can recover damages for the plaintiffs.

Types of Deceptive Business Practice Class Action Claims

Many large corporations have been found guilty of deceptive trade practices and forced to pay restitution to their customers who joined a class action lawsuit. Even if the damages are small per consumer, when thousands or millions of people join a lawsuit, it can send a very loud message to the fraudulent company. Some of the types of deceptive business practice class action claims include:

  • False or deceptive advertising
  • Using “bait and switch” methods
  • Misrepresenting pricing
  • Charging more for services than advertised
  • Charging fees for services not delivered

Class action lawsuits make it possible to hold large companies liable for deceptive practices by banding victims together. A company that overcharges their customers a few dollars a month is unlikely to be sued by one customer due to the cost of litigation. However, when thousands of customers file a class action suit, the company can be held liable, and the deceptive practices can be stopped.

If you have been harmed by a company due to deceptive business practices, you may be one of many. Talk to our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP to discuss a possible class action lawsuit. Many times, the lead plaintiff can be awarded a monetary incentive for their time and effort in identifying deceptive trade practices if a class action lawsuit is won.
