Our Woodland Hills consumer protection attorneys represent consumers against companies that violate federal and state laws. Consumer actions can arise from various types of wrongful conduct by sellers, manufacturers, debt collectors, financial institutions, and other companies.
Some of the more common types of illegal conduct include:
- False Advertising: Deceptive or untrue statements regarding a product or service, such as misleading product labeling, false representations about product features, or deceptive information regarding product pricing
- Unfair Debt Collection Practices: Deceptive or abusive tactics in collecting debts, such as misrepresenting the amount or status of the debt, undue pressure to pay, etc
- Billing Fraud: Unfair and deceptive billing practices, such as improper auto-renewal charges and hidden fees
- Robocalls and Spam: Unsolicited calls, text messages, and faxes by companies in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)
- Unfair Bank and Lender Practices: Hidden charges, overcharges, or other improper charges and fees by banks, lenders, and other financial institutions
The Power of Class Action Consumer Claims
Consumer actions are often best pursued as class actions, depending on the wrongful conduct of the company and the number of people impacted. A class action consumer protection claim is a type of legal action where a large group of people who have suffered similar harm or losses due to a company's wrongful conduct join together to file a lawsuit against the responsible party.
Class actions enable individuals to enforce the law and obtain compensation against corporations on behalf of numerous victims, providing strength in numbers. These claims can be an effective way for consumers to hold businesses accountable and seek compensation for their damages.
Some common examples of class action consumer protection claims include:
- Defective products causing harm or injury to consumers
- False advertising leading to financial loss or dissatisfaction with a product or service
- Unfair debt collection practices affecting multiple consumers
- Unauthorized charges, hidden fees, or improper billing practices by service providers or financial institutions
- Data breaches resulting in the exposure of sensitive personal information
To initiate a class action consumer protection claim, the following requirements must generally be met:
- Commonality: The claims or defenses of the class members must share common questions of law or fact.
- Adequacy: The representative parties (i.e., the individuals filing the lawsuit) must adequately protect the interests of the entire class.
- Numerosity: The class must be so large that it would be impractical to bring individual lawsuits for each affected person.
- Typicality: The claims or defenses of the representative parties must be typical of those of the class members.
If these requirements are met and a court approves the class action, all potential class members will be notified and have the option to join the lawsuit or opt out. Successful class action consumer protection claims can result in significant compensation for the affected consumers and may also lead to changes in the defendant company's practices.
