Consumer Rights under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act
The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA) TEX BC. CODE ANN. § 17.46 allows consumers to pursue compensation for the harm they’ve suffered as a result of a business using fraud, misrepresentation, exaggeration or other deceptive statements or practices to harm a consumer. It also allows people to pursue attorney’s fees in these types of cases.
The DTPA covers a wide variety of business transactions that range from a simple retail purchases to wrongful foreclosure and even wrongful deaths due to product defects. Depending on the facts of the case and the outcome at trial, a consumer may be entitled to “Treble Damages”. Treble Damages are a recovery of three times the amount of actual financial losses suffered which is provided by the TDTPA statute in cases where the defendant – business knowingly or intentionally acted wrongfully.
Consumer law claimants under The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act may be able to recover compensation for injuries suffered, property damage, mental anguish or other costs. If you believe you have a consumer law claim, our attorneys will investigate your claim to see what your legal options are.
