In Mississippi, there are both state and federal laws that protect you as a consumer. Consumer purchases, credit, and even marketing calls are all tightly regulated. As a consumer, you have legal rights under the law, and you can sue when they have been violated. Not only do you want the illegal practices to stop, but you may also want financial compensation for what you endured when the business broke the law.

Businesses will not listen or respect you when you try to stand up to them on your own. You need a consumer protection attorney’s help. You may be unable to pinpoint exactly how they are breaking the law. A business that employs illegal practices is not exactly about to stop just because a customer tells them. In many cases, bad actors only respond when they hear from an experienced lawyer who knows exactly what they did wrong. If not, these businesses can face a lawsuit. Many consumer protection lawsuits end up as large class actions, costing companies tens of millions of dollars.

Consumer Laws That Protect You

Here are some of the relevant consumer laws that protect you from illegal business practices:

Many consumer protection laws do not require you to prove that the defendant had any intent to break the law. All you need to do is prove that they violated the law, and they may become liable in a lawsuit. Nonetheless, you must go through the lawsuit process to get compensation for what you have endured.

Damages You Can Get in a Consumer Law Case

The amount of money that you may recover in a consumer lawsuit may vary based on the harm that you have suffered. Consumer lawsuits often become class action cases because scores of people suffered in the same way that you did. However, you can file a lawsuit on your own when you have been the victim of illegal business practices.

If you file and win a lawsuit, you could receive a number of types of damages. First, many laws specify a statutory penalty each time the defendant breaks the law. Second, you can be made whole when their actions have impacted you financially. Finally, you might even recover from the ordeal to which you have been subjected.

Why You Need a Hattiesburg Consumer Law Attorney

Big business likes to fight consumer protection lawsuits and win. They believe that the more lawsuits they win, the more precedent they set to allow them to act poorly in the future. When you are waging a battle with a company, you must come with someone who is prepared to fight in court or strike a hard bargain in a settlement agreement.

There are other reasons why you would want to file a consumer protection lawsuit. The only way to hit back against big businesses that use abusive and illegal business practices is in their wallet. When lawsuits cost a company money, perhaps it will start to clean up its act. Consumer lawsuits are every bit as much about justice and making change as they are about getting financial compensation. You are bringing bad practices to light, and companies will suffer in the public relations department.

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.
Can I get punitive damages in a consumer lawsuit?

In many cases, you can. It depends on how bad the company’s behavior was and whether the jury wants to send a message. In many consumer protection law cases, the number of punitive damages are uncapped.

Do I need to prove intent in a consumer law case?

In most cases, you would not. The federal consumer laws would punish the business for the mere fact that the violation of law happened.

How long will my consumer lawsuit take?

These court cases can take years to pursue to completion, but it is a process that you must go through to get justice and relief.
