The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Consumer Protection Act provides protection for consumers from false, misleading, and deceptive acts or practices. Our firm can provide representation for consumers in various matters involving lemon law claims, breach of warranty, insurance claims, deceptive sales and services, fraud and misrepresentation.
Parties to lawsuits may recover additional damages beyond their out-of -pocket expenses when they file suit under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, which provides for additional, punitive damages up to three times the actual damages amount if a defendant has knowingly or intentionally deceived someone , misrepresented the goods or services that they offer for sale, or engaged in a host of other specifically prohibited conduct.
Lawsuits involving cars—both mechanical work performed and car sales—are often the most common types of cases to involve Deceptive Trade Practices Act Claims and the award of punitive damages.
At Hahn Law Firm, we have established a long history of litigation related to vehicles and we are extremely experienced in recovering Deceptive Trade Practices Act damages. By representing buyers of cars, as well as customers who have had bad experiences with mechanics, we are able to identify and effectively pursue violations leading directly to favorable judgments and settlements.
Additionally, our effectiveness in obtaining judgments is aided by our expert witnesses who possess skill and knowledge in all facets from mechanical work to custom body work. Our years-long relationships with these individuals and their ability to effectively communicate complicated matters to the judge and jury has led to our recovery of judgments against dealerships, repair shops, lube and oil change shops and all levels of car salespeople for all types of claims.
If you have had a bad experience with an auto mechanic, dealership or private seller, and would like to see if you have any legal remedies then we encourage you to contact us to set up a consultation.
