WHAT IS A CONSUMER PROTECTION CLAIM?
Most states have enacted laws to protect consumers against unfair sales practices and irresponsible storage of customer information. If a business owner violates these laws, they can be brought to court and held responsible for the harm they have done to their customers through a consumer protection lawsuit.

Where a business owner’s actions have harmed many individual consumers, the consumers may be able to band together to file a class action. Class actions are civil lawsuits that allow a few individuals to bring legal claims on behalf of a large group of people who have been harmed in similar ways. This gives consumers strength in numbers to level the field against the business that has done them wrong.

WHAT TYPES OF CONSUMER PROTECTION CLAIMS DOES BURG SIMPSON HANDLE?

Unfair Practice – Product Liability Claim - Ohio Burg SimpsonMost states have enacted laws to protect consumers against predatory sales practices.  For example, Ohio has enacted the Consumer Sales Practices Act, which protects consumer who’ve been victimized by unscrupulous companies. The Consumer Sales Practices Act requires companies to:

  • Accurately represent the characteristics of a product or service.
  • Honor guarantees and warranties.
  • Make no misrepresentations about the nature of their business, their products or services, the prices of their goods, or the terms of a transaction.
  • Not take advantage of a consumer’s illiteracy, mental disability, physical disability, or inability to understand the terms of a sale.
  • Not sell a product or service knowing the consumer cannot afford or substantially benefit from it.
  • Disclose important exclusions and limitations in advertisements.
  • Not sell used items as new.
  • Not use bait-and-switch tactics to trick consumers into paying higher prices.

If a company engages in unfair sales practices, the injured consumer is entitled to compensation. Furthermore, if the company’s unfair sales practices have affected many consumers, the injured consumers may be able to band together to file a class action lawsuit.

Warranty Breach - Class Action Settlements - Ohio Burg Simpson

A warranty regarding a product you purchase is a promise about the quality of that good. When purchasing some products, such as cars, the sales contract may include certain warranties. For example, the sales contract may provide that the parts of the product are guaranteed to last for a certain period of time and if they do not, they will be replaced by the seller or manufacturer.

Other warranties are not expressly written or spoken, but are implied. For example, when a good is sold, there is often an implied warranty that the good is fit for the ordinary purpose for which it was sold. Similarly, if you tell a seller that you need an item for a particular purpose, and the seller directs you to a certain product, the seller impliedly warrants that the product is fit for the purpose you discussed with the seller.

If the product you purchased fails and the seller or manufacturer does not honor their warranties, you can hold them responsible. Call Burg Simpson’s Ohio office at 513-852-5600 and speak with a civil litigation lawyer now or fill out our Free Case Evaluation Form.

Breach of Privacy - Class Action Lawsuit - Ohio Burg Simpson

Hackers are always on the prowl, trying to steal everything from your passwords to your Social Security number. Corporations know this. Therefore, if they are going to collect your private information, they have a duty to keep it secure. When a company fails to secure your data and it is compromised by hackers, you can hold the company accountable.

Many states have robust consumer protection laws. Ohio, for example, has a data security breach notification law that requires companies that own or license confidential personal data to notify customers anytime a breach is detected, in addition to directing an investigation to determine the likelihood that any personal information has been or may be misused. If the breach involves more than 1,000 people, companies also must notify the national credit reporting agencies.
