Consumer Protection Litigation and the Texas DTPA

The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA) protects consumers in the event of deceptive and misleading sales practices. Aimed at unscrupulous providers of goods and services, the statute protects consumers from fraudulent business practices and unconscionable actions. If a consumer has suffered as a result of one or more of the DTPA’s prohibited actions, it may be necessary to take legal action.

An Overview of the Consumer Protection Litigation Process

If you believe you have been the victim of deceptive business practices, Lucé Law, PC can review your case and confirm if there is a legal claim. The DTPA defines a range of actions and certain steps that are required before litigation can commence. Initially, the consumer will need to send a letter to the seller detailing their complaint. If the issue is not resolved within 60 days, it is possible to file a lawsuit.

Reasons for Working With a Consumer Protection Litigation Attorney

  • Misleading Acts – Covers a range of complaints including causing confusion about the affiliation or approval of goods and services, advertising goods or services with the intent to sell them not as advertised, misrepresenting the quality of goods and so on.
  • Unconscionable Actions – Taking advantage of the knowledge, capacity or experience of a consumer to an unfair degree.
  • Breach of Warranty – When a product doesn’t do what a seller promises it will do.

While the DTPA recognizes and defines many bad practices used against consumers, it will take experienced attorneys to build a case that results in a fair settlement. At Lucé Law, PC we are dedicated to protecting the rights of our clients – and ensuring they receive adequate damages for the poor treatment they have faced.

Common Questions About Consumer Protection Litigation

No. According to the DTPA, “a consumer” refers to an individual or a business with assets less than $25 million.

A consumer may be entitled to financial damages, mental anguish damages and attorney’s fees. The seller could also have their licensing or certification revoked.

Under the DTPA, lawsuits usually need to be filed within two years of the act having occurred. There may be exceptions to this rule, and our attorneys can advise further after assessing your case.
