In Tennessee, consumers have the right to be treated fairly, but dishonest businesses, creditors and merchants often engage in unfair and deceptive practices that cost consumers millions of dollars each year. Whether these practices are carried out by automobile manufacturers or mortgage lenders, home appliance dealers or credit card companies, consumers can be harmed in a variety of ways. However, they are protected by consumer protection laws.
At the law offices of Chadwick & Tignor, P.C. we fight for the rights of consumers throughout the middle Tennessee area such as Spring Hill, Franklin, and other towns in Wilson County. Whether you are the victim of false advertising, deceptive labeling or another unfair or fraudulent practice, you need a dedicated consumer protection advocate by your side.
How are consumers protected in Spring Hill, Tennessee?
The Tennessee Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) covers most consumer transactions in the state. In order to have a valid claim under this law, it is necessary to demonstrate that a business engaged in false, misleading or deceptive acts that caused the consumer to suffer a financial loss.
While there are a wide range of dishonest schemes that businesses use to cheat consumers, some common unfair and deceptive practices include false advertising, selling dangerous and defective products, charging exorbitant, unwarranted or undisclosed fees, bait-and-switch sales tactics and other bogus or fraudulent activities.
If you were the victim of an unfair or deceptive business practice and live in the Wilson County, Tennessee area you may be able to recover damages and attorney’s fees against a business that violates the TCPA. In cases where numerous consumers have suffered the same harm by the illegal actions of a business, it may be possible to bring a class action lawsuit. This is a lawsuit that can be brought by one person or a few people on behalf of a larger group of consumers.
