Consumer & Business Fraud Attorney in Mobile, Alabama

As a consumer or business owner, you engage in business transactions frequently without realizing the numerous laws that apply to them. Statutes at both the federal and state level protect your interests by prohibiting fraud, deception, and other misconduct that companies employ to gain a financial advantage. If you or your business was treated unfairly, you may file a complaint with the Alabama Attorney General’s Office. Officials will investigate the allegations of wrongdoing from the standpoint of how these acts affect society, and they may even impose penalties.

However, you may also have a private right of action against a company that violates consumer protection laws. It may be possible to recover compensation for your losses, though the legal process can be complicated when you are pursuing a large corporation. Instead of putting your rights at risk, rely on Roger Varner Injury Law to take action. Please contact our consumer fraud lawyers today. We can schedule a free consultation to discuss specifics.

Laws That Protect Against Consumer Fraud

There are many statutes that regulate the transactions, agreements, services, and other interactions among companies, small business owners, and consumers. These laws protect your interests in connection with a wide range of personal and financial matters. You may leverage legal remedies if you were subjected to misconduct in connection with:

  • Returns and refunds for goods you purchase online and through brick-and-mortar stores.
  • Deposits, withdrawals, fees, and interest related to checking, savings, and other bank accounts.
  • Business and personal loans, credit cards, and lines of credit.
  • Homeowners, businesses, property owners, and auto insurance, including issues involving insurance bad faith.
  • Mortgages.
  • Express and implied product warranties.
  • Contracts for goods and services.
  • Online activities.
  • Buying a car and lemon laws.

Your Remedies for Violations of the Law

The exact nature of your remedies will vary according to which business or consumer fraud laws were violated by the at-fault company. However, when these statutes provide you with a private right of action, there is usually a strict process for enforcing your rights. In some cases, you will have to file a complaint with a US or Alabama administrative agency and attempt to resolve your claim by agreement. Once you exhaust your administrative remedies, you may qualify to sue in civil court.

Our consumer and business fraud lawyers at Roger Varner Injury Law will handle all essential tasks to ensure you receive proper compensation. You may be entitled to:

  • Damages for your actual losses;
  • An injunction against the offending company to cease illegal acts; and,
  • Punitive damages, which are intended to punish the offender and could be as high as three times your actual losses.
