What is Consumer Law?

Consumer law is applied to the efforts of the government, public-interest organizations, individuals, and businesses to establish, protect, and enforce the rights of people who buy products such as consumer products, food, vehicles or services such as health care and insurance.

Kennedy in his 1962 message to Congress on consumerism, are as follow: (1) the right to safety; (2) the right to be informed; (3) the right to choose; and (4) the right to be heard.

Consumer Law Lawyers:

Many consumer problems are caused by incorrect or fraudulent information. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) bears the primary responsibility for making sure that advertising and labelling are not false or misleading, but does not enforce consumer laws. Therefore, sometimes a buyer finds that the manufacturer or seller will not cooperate in resolving the complaint. In recent years consumer protection laws have been passed to help dissatisfied consumers. Some consumer laws declared certain deceptive business practices illegal and give consumers the right to sue a business believed to be violating the law. This is where a good consumer protection lawyer comes into play. A consumer law lawyer can help you settle any consumer claim successfully and make sure you get compensated monetarily for any pain and suffering.
