Consumers can get caught up in unlawful and deceitful conduct by corporations, mortgage lenders and banks. Through consumer class action lawsuits, the attorneys at Shanberg, Stafford & Bartz LLP can help consumers confront corporate wrongdoing and obtain a fair remedy for all those who were harmed.
The consumer class action attorneys of Shanberg, Stafford & Bartz LLP represent consumers in a variety of consumer protection actions for matters such as:
Telephone Consumer Protection Act
Few things are more frustrating than receiving unsolicited phone calls from telemarketers or computers (robocalls). The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) protects consumers while holding unscrupulous businesses accountable. Our consumer class action attorneys can help consumers put an end to this nefarious practice.
False advertising occurs when a business advertises a product that it does not have, or does not intend to obtain, as a way to lure the customer to the business. High-pressure sales tactics are then used to convince the consumer to purchase a more expensive alternative. This fraud may also occur when a business makes untruthful claims about the capabilities or effectiveness of their products.
Hidden Or Undisclosed Fees
Ever receive a bill with mysterious charges? When consumers receive bills containing charges that were never agreed upon, fraud may be afoot. Examples include credit card or bank fees, undisclosed cellphone charges, and hidden processing fees with hotels and travel sites.
Consumers expect the products they purchase will be designed in a manner that is safe for reasonable use. It is also an expectation that companies will provide a warning of any possible product dangers. Unfortunately, many companies fall short of their duty to protect consumers, which results in severe injuries. We can help individuals harmed by a product achieve justice and fair compensation for their injuries.
Data Breaches Of Private Information
It is commonplace for companies to collect customer data of a personal and financial nature. As a result, companies should protect that sensitive data. Nevertheless, data breaches often occur where private information such as Social Security numbers, bank account information, or credit card information is released. The lawyers at Shanberg, Stafford & Bartz LLP can help consumers protect their rights to privacy when such breaches occur and diminish the risk of identity theft.
Unfair Competition Or Deceptive Trade Practice
When a company employs deceitful methods or misrepresentation to accrue more business, they engage in unfair competition or deceptive trade practices. These practices often affect a large number of consumers in a uniform way by encouraging them to purchase products that they otherwise would not. Our consumer class action attorneys helps consumers enforce their rights against untruthful corporations.
Consumers often mistakenly believe that an attorney will not represent them because their claims are too small. However, using consumer class action lawsuits, consumers can obtain a remedy that compensates all of those harmed and requires the business to stop the unlawful practice.
