Consumer law is often defined as the laws that regulate the relationship between an individual consumer and the business that sells the consumer goods or services.
Different types of consumer protection actions can include product liability, unfair business practices, and privacy rights.
When a consumer purchases products and services, the consumer should have a right to expect that the product or service is of a reasonable quality. When it is not, state and federal law may give the customer a right to recover for damages.
A consumer protection lawyer represents people who have made purchases or services or products that have failed to live up to reasonable expectations.
