3 Types of Consumer Fraud Lawsuits
Consumer fraud occurs when manufacturers or sellers cause consumers harm by providing false information that misrepresented their products.
There are three forms of misrepresentation that arise under common law:
- Intentional Misrepresentation (Fraud)
The manufacturer knowingly deceives the consumer by presenting false information.
- Reckless Misrepresentation
A company consciously asserts information that may or may not be truthful.
- Negligent Misrepresentation
The seller carelessly communicates information that should be recognized as false.
Proving a Consumer Fraud Case
If you have been a victim of consumer fraud and have suffered damage as a result of misrepresentation, you must prove the following to win your case:
- the representation given was fact—not opinion,
- the fact was false,
- the fact was material,
- and the representation led to financial harm.
Class Action Lawsuits
When many people suffer loss caused by a common action, a class action lawsuit can be filed to efficiently obtain recovery. Class action lawsuits are often used to seek monetary damages and injunctive relief resulting from violations of the following:
- Anti-trust laws
- Civil rights violations
- Consumer fraud
- Consumer laws
- Employee benefits disputes
- Insurance disputes
- Mass torts
