Phoenix False Advertising And Product Misrepresentation Lawyer
There are state and federal laws that are put in place to protect the public from misleading or false advertising. In other words, making deceptive claims about products is completely illegal. The law says that a business is to never make a false claim, mislead consumers, or make some kind of deceptive claim about a product. These claims could involve quality, price, or purpose of the product.
If you are a company that has been accused of making false claims or an issue with a product led to such accusations, Myles A. Schneider can help you resolve the claims against you. Just because something may have been unexpectedly wrong with the product or perceived to be wrong, that doesn’t mean that you should be held liable.
Problems With False Advertising Claims
There are times when false advertising claims may be legitimate. There have been companies cited for such actions. Those companies have gone to court and they have been able to effectively resolve those issues with the help of their attorneys. Other times, claims of misrepresentation or false advertising may be filed against a company because of the following reasons:
- The product was defective
- The consumer misused the product
- The product was perceived to do something that it was not designed to do
- It was thought the company was using deceptive form contracts
- The company was thought to use high-pressure sales tactics
These are just some of the areas where false advertising and product misrepresentation accusations may come from. A company can also be accused of failing to disclose (spring water companies not revealing they are using tap water) or using bait and switch advertising, which is promising consumers a specific product at a certain price and the consumer finds that that is not the product being sold.
Product Misrepresentation Consequences
Myles A. Schneider is an Arizona federal crimes defense lawyer who knows how to prove the facts in the case. If a company is found guilty of these deceptive practices, the end result could be monetary damages to the victim, injunctions to stop the advertising, injunctions to stop the practices, and injunctions to include certain disclosures within their advertising. The goal is to avoid unnecessary injunctions or monetary damages that may be the result of a misunderstanding. If there is an issue with the advertising, the proper measures can be taken to rectify the situation.
