Many consumers are
taken advantage of everyday by unsavory individuals and
businesses. Even thought most businesses operate in a fair and
legal manner, the unscrupulous individuals and businesses costs
Texas’ consumers a lot of time and money each year. It is very
important for the Texas’ consumer to be knowledgeable about
consumer laws and about their rights when entering into any
transaction and/or contract with another person or business.
Your consumer law matter may be, among other things, a debt
collector that is harassing you, a car dealer that sold you a
lemon, a wrongful repossession of your car, a wrongful home
solicitation, or a violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade
Practices-Consumer Protection Act. Under consumer protection
laws, a consumer may file suit for a consumer law violation and
ask for an award of damages. Some of the state and federal
consumer law statutes also allow for the award of attorney’s
fees if you win the lawsuit.
Contracts are entered into everyday.
Contracts can involve almost any subject. Contracts can be
simple or can be complicated. Contracts can be written or
verbal. Each party to a contract has rights and
responsibilities associated with that contract. It is very
important that when you are involved in a contract that you are
familiar with all terms of the contract. It is important to have
an attorney if you are involved in litigation over a contract.
You may be entitled to damages for violations of the terms of
the contract and/or attorney’s fees if the contract allows for
it. Legal representation will help you understand the terms of
the contract and, if you, and the other party have fulfilled the
terms of the agreement. Please contact Carrabba & Associates,
