Consumer Protection and Privacy

False advertising, failure to honor warranty coverage, misleading or unfair pricing, and charging for products and services not provided are just a handful of the many unfair or deceptive trade practices that some corporations use to harm consumers. However, state and federal = laws provide consumers with protections against many of these unfair or deceptive business practices.

Consumer Protection Overview:

False advertising and breaches of warranty can occur if you purchase a product or service that is significantly inferior to what a business promises. And if a company imposes inappropriate or hidden fees, misleading charges, or charges for services it does not provide, those actions can also violate state and federal law.

The attorneys at PKG are experienced in a wide variety of consumer protection matters, from defective automobiles or appliances to the charging of inappropriate mortgage fees.

Consumer privacy is under attack in our modern times.

In addition to the more conventional types of consumer protection issues, invasions of consumer privacy and violations of data security harm consumers at an ever-growing pace. These issues include large-scale data breaches, unlawful website and internet tracking, and inappropriate sharing of personal information by debt collectors.

Fortunately, state and federal laws provide consumers with the ability to challenge some of these bad practices and compensate them for privacy breaches.

Received a notice of a data breach? You may be entitled to compensation.

If you have received an email or letter describing a data breach in which your personal information was leaked or stolen from a company that you entrusted your privacy to, you may be entitled to additional compensation beyond what the company offers you in its initial letter. This is because you likely provided important, private information to the company and had the reasonable expectation that it would safeguard your information as part of the transaction.

PKG attorneys have litigated multiple data breach cases, including:

  • A data breach involving an eyewear and medical company that resulted in the exposure of private information of hundreds of thousands of patients and consumers.
  • A data breach involving the disclosure of private information of several million patients of a dental corporation.
