Consumer claims can come in a variety of forms. Consumer law could generally be referred to as a group of laws that protect consumers from unfair or predatory business practices. Claims could come under a variety of statutes such as the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act ("FDCPA"), the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act ("OCSPA"), Lemon Law, or under a common law claim such as fraud.
A consumer lawsuit could concern false advertising, poorly disclosed or fraudulent fees, a business's failure to adhere to a warranty, or a business's failure to provide the specific good or service purchased by the consumer. Sometimes a business will use their knowledge to recommend unnecessary services. Unlike other lawsuits, attorney fees are often awarded to a successful individual in consumer litigation.
