Practically anyone who you do business with, and people trying to do business with you, can violate your rights as a consumer. Your rights come from federal and state laws, and there can be penalties for businesses that cross the line, whether they intended to or not. To hold the business accountable, you should hire an experienced consumer law attorney.

By the time you have hired a lawyer, chances are that you have gotten the runaround from a business or have been subjected to intense pressure. You may have even thought that you made your position clear, only to be ignored. When businesses break consumer laws, they are playing with fire. There are routinely stories of massive class action lawsuits that cost these companies a lot of money. You can even file a lawsuit on an individual level when the business has directly wronged you.

Mississippi and Federal Consumer Protection Laws

As a consumer, you have rights that come from several Mississippi state laws:

  • Mississippi Law allows you to file a lawsuit when you have suffered monetary losses when someone has used deceptive trade practices such as false advertising, bait-and-switch tactics, and other fraudulent activity to sell you something.
  • The Mississippi Lemon Law requires the dealer to buy your car back or replace it when they cannot fix a defect that violates express warranties within one year after the date of purchase.

Federal law also gives you protection from other practices that could harm you as a consumer:

If negotiation, or even mediation, does not work, you can take matters to court. Here, the risks are high for the defendant because they could be facing a large lawsuit that could mean that they need to pay thousands, or even more, to injured consumers.

Possible Damages in a Consumer Law Case

You may be entitled to some of the following remedies:

  • Rescission of a sale that relied on deceptive practice or monetary damages
  • Replacement of a defective car that you bought
  • A set amount of money that is specified in the statute
  • Consequential losses when a wrong credit report costs you money
  • Emotional distress damages when abusive business practices cause you severe stress and anxiety
  • Possible punitive damages when the company has engaged in shocking and egregious behaviors

Why You Need a Consumer Law Attorney

Businesses have expensive defense attorneys, and they pay attention to the latest court rulings that interpret the myriad of consumer laws. Many large companies are trying to thread the needle between aggressive business practices and illegal ones. In some cases, they cross that line, and you can hold them accountable.

Your consumer law attorney must have a passion for getting justice for clients because these cases can be hard fought. As a state, Mississippi does not have the most robust set of consumer laws, but you still have legal rights and options. The combination of state and federal laws still provides you with some protections. Your attorney would know the most effective venue where to file your case and how to navigate the different forums. Your lawyer would also counsel you on how to deal with the company that is potentially breaking the law.

What Our Clients Say
Christopher Graves
I think reviews from consumer are important; yet, reviews from other attorneys are just as important, in my opinion. Lawyers know the level of integrity, skill, and value-added of their colleagues. With that being said, Daniel Ware can be summed up in sentence: Daniel Ware is your favorite lawyer's favorite lawyer. If I had a civil, criminal, or bankruptcy matter, Daniel would the lawyer I would call.
Kelvin Beverly
Mr. Ware is a very dependable and committed lawyer. He kept me in the loop of what was going on and most importantly he never stopped fighting for my case. That old saying 'He was A-1 from Day-1." Thanks Mr Ware.
Jennifer Bennett
Daniel Ware is an amazing lawyer; very professional and committed. This has been stated over and over again in the reviews. However, he's more than that. Intelligent, compassionate and empathetic you can trust your concerns will be handled. I could go on, but the fact is I'd trust no one else for my affairs. The Ware Law Firm is all I needed.

Frequently Asked Questions
Let’s Face It — You Have Questions.
Do you need to prove intent to violate laws to win your case?

The federal laws are considered “strict liability,” meaning that the defendant becomes responsible once it is proven that they broke the law.

When the dealer takes back a lemon car, do they have to pay me the purchase price?

Yes, but the purchase price is adjusted by .20 for each mile that you drive the car.

What law regulates credit card practices?

The Truth in Lending Act governs credit card issuers and places limits on their fees and business practices.
