A consumer claim is a claim that involves the purchase of an item or service. If you contracted for services or purchased an item and it was not what the seller represented it would be, then you may have a consumer claim. There are special laws that protect consumers from fraudulent or bad consumer sales. These include the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, the Fair Debt Collection Act, and many other laws. A consumer that has a claim may be entitled to money damages under the Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA) based on the conduct of the seller of the good or service.
These claims commonly involve service contracts between consumers and businesses. A consumer claim may also involve the purchase of a vehicle, boat, car, truck or other equipment. If you purchased a good and service and it was not what the service was represented to be, then you may have a consumer claim. The claim may be a simple breach of contract or it may involve fraud or other violations of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA).
It is important to have your claim evaluated by an experienced consumer claim attorney to determine whether you should make a claim. The attorney will likely need to review the sale or service contract, the details of what was represented to you before any money changed hands, as well as other details.
