Hartford Consumer Litigation Lawyers
30+ Years of Experience Handling Complex Commercial Cases in State & Federal Court
Many state and federal laws have been established in the U.S. to protect consumers. These laws began to be put into place as far back as the 1914 when the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) was created to oversee the matter of products and services presented to the public. In the years since, consumer protection laws have expanded to safeguard many areas of consumer activity in the U.S. When a consumer alleges that a company is not doing business correctly, whether through unfair, deceptive, or negligent practices, it can become an area of dispute that requires the services of a law firm experienced in consumer litigation defense.
A consumer litigation case can have a huge impact on both the consumer and the company's futures. It may be necessary to take the case to court to resolve such an issue. If your company is facing such an issue, get in touch with Boatman Law. We have more than 30 years of experience in handling such complex commercial cases involving allegations of improper business practices, including fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and otherwise unfair or deceptive trade practices.
Consumer Litigation Cases
Consumer litigation cases can involve a variety of issues and allegations of violations against state or federal laws. These can include individual as well as class action claims. Examples of laws that may be at issue include the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Fair Credit Billing Act, Truth in Lending, and more.
Furthermore, each state may have its own laws legislated to protect residents from various types of deceptive, unfair, or misleading business practices. For example, Connecticut has passed laws to protect is residents from unfair business practices that can include false advertising, deceptive pricing, fake prizes, and more.
