Do you feel like you’ve been scammed? You’re not alone.

As a consumer, you have rights that are supposed to protect you from fraudulent businesses and services. But what happens when those rights are violated? It’s not uncommon for individuals to feel helpless and taken advantage of.

Maybe you’ve tried to resolve the issue on your own, only to hit a dead end with unresponsive customer service or a company that refuses to make things right.

Or perhaps you’ve filed a complaint with a government agency, but nothing seems to happen. You may have even hired another law firm, but were left disappointed with their lack of results.

Consumer Protection Laws That Help You

Mississippi’s consumer protection laws prohibit unfair and deceptive business practices, but they may not be strong enough to provide adequate protection for consumers.

However, if a business has defrauded you or sold you faulty goods, you can still take legal action. Federal consumer protection laws also offer additional protections in various situations. Even if you’re not buying anything, you may still be considered a consumer under credit-related laws.

Here are three laws that protect you:

  • Mississippi lemon law requires a dealer to replace or buy back a car that does not live up to express warranties after three attempts to fix it in one year.
  • The Fair Credit Reporting Act requires accurate credit reporting and restricts the permissible purpose of your credit history.
  • The Truth in Lending Act prohibits hidden fees and false statements when you are borrowing money.

When there is a profit motive, businesses can cut corners or use abusive practices. For example, debt collectors can harass you, calling you at all hours of the day and night to try to collect on a debt. Creditors may report old debts on your report and damage your score. Both of these can harm you financially and even physically.

Damages in a Consumer Protection Lawsuit

You can file a lawsuit against businesses under numerous laws. Many of these statutes provide similar types of relief.

In many consumer protection lawsuits, you may be able to get the following types of damages:

  • Statutory damages — For example, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act allows for you to receive $500 per violation and $1500 for knowing violations.
  • Consequential damages — If the violation costs you money, you can recover it in a lawsuit (such as having to rent a new apartment because you lost a potential lease over inaccurate information on your credit report).
  • Emotional distress — When you are being harassed or your credit misused, it may cause you physical and emotional distress.
  • Punitive damages — Depending on how bad the defendant’s conduct was, a jury may hit them with a punitive damages verdict.

These big businesses have lawyers of their own. Oftentimes, these are expensive and high-powered attorneys whose job is to help explain away clearly illegal conduct or to minimize their legal exposure. You should have Mississippi consumer lawyers who believe passionately in justice for consumers and know how to stand up to large companies.
Many consumer protection cases become large litigation because you are one of many consumers that the business is mistreating. We have experience pursuing justice against some of the nation’s biggest companies.

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.
