Consumer Class Action Lawyer Fighting For Consumer Rights in Florida
Some businesses engage in deceptive acts and practices which harm consumers. Bait-and-switch advertising, abusive robocalls, and other deceptive and unfair business practices affect millions of consumers in the U.S. each year. These types of harmful business practices often violate state and federal consumer protection laws which afford important rights to consumers. Aggrieved consumers can fight back through class action lawsuits which challenge this illegal conduct and seek relief for all affected consumers.
Seth Lehrman leads Edwards Pottinger’s class action team in pursuing consumer class action lawsuits. We have successfully pursued class action cases for consumers and businesses nationwide.
What is a Consumer Class Action Lawsuit?
Consumer class action cases allow one person to challenge a business practice which they believe is illegal, on behalf of a group of consumers who are in a similar circumstance. This type of legal action is particularly effective when the damages sustained by any one person are too small to justify an individual lawsuit. By pursuing a class action, relatively small damages sustained by dozens, hundreds or even thousands of individuals can be combined into a single, cost-effective legal action.
Consumer class action cases are frequently initiated by one person or a few people on behalf of a larger group of consumers who have experienced similar harm or losses. Successful consumer class actions help to protect important rights that are provided by state and federal consumer protection laws.
