Consumer Protection Representation For San Antonio, Austin And South Central Texas
We Are All Consumers
Whenever you buy something, you become a consumer. Even a business is a consumer. As a consumer you have specific legal rights — first and foremost you have the right to get what you paid for.
The Law – And Lawyer Edward L. Kurth – Are On Your Side
Consumer protection is an area of the law that covers many different legal concepts. That means that there are many different legal tools for protecting your rights as a consumer. For example:
The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act (DTPA) provides consumers with a way to punish dishonest persons or businesses that use false, misleading or deceptive acts when they sell you a product or a service. It also provides you with a way to hold builders and contractors responsible for shoddy construction.
The Texas Insurance Code provides consumers with a way to punish insurance companies or insurance agents who use dishonest practices in advertising and selling insurance, or who do not honor the rights you should receive when you buy insurance.
Chapter 12 of the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code provides protection from unscrupulous contractors who try to put illegal liens on your property when you refuse to pay for shoddy work.
The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau has developed rules to protect consumers from unfair fees and charges and other unreasonable conduct by banks and credit card companies.
The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Texas Debt Collection Act are designed to protect consumers who have been victimized by unscrupulous debt collectors, even when the consumer owes a valid debt.
