Consumer Protection Law
Consumer Protection Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for the question.
You may pursue a claim on theory of breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation and unjust enrichment.
This can be handled through local court but as a consumer you have other options
Those include demanding compensation from management, filing a complaint with the BBB and the state attorney general office.
what are the documents i need to get through this.
those options are more utilized.
is there person/lawyer that i can approach for this?
If you have a contract for services, e-mails or other contact with their representatives for evidence. The agencies will have you fill out a complaint online or in local office
You may involve a local consumer protection lawyer
locally you may find one using martindale.com
but you can save on lawyer fees and lodge the complaint personally
Is that clear?
awaiting your reply
can i sue them and get some money out of it? if so can i use a local lawyer for me to represent. because i am
new to this law suit etc
not familier with law offices and court formalities
In court, you appear and fill out a summons and complaint
the clerk would help you
and this begins a lawsuit against the company
you fill in names, what happened, and the clerk will schedule a hearing
the BBB is another option
what is BBB
also i am not good at english
which is the court near to my place . my zip code s 95126
You can hire a lawyer to help but the court clerk will often provide a translator
that is a link for a BBB complaint
I would suggest that over a lawsuit
a lawsuit is more effective if you have at least $1000 in losses
here it is a consumer complaint
and you can fill out a complaint with the BBB and I gave you a link above
Have a nice sunday
i have less than $200 loss
Please click on an excellent rating for the answer
suing doesnt make sense over that amount
the agency complaints I mentioned would be better
then what you mean $1000?
i dont understand about that part
I meant if you had a loss of more than $1000, suing makes sense
here your loss is under $200
so a lawsuit is not a good use of time
so you dont suggest the sue
I suggest a BBB complaint
and I gave you a link for that
how much i can benefit from this
and negotiating with management again
can i get any money if i win
The $200 you mentioned at best
ok, what happen to my illness due this
If so you can show that you may be able to recover additional damages
and then you would turn to a court action
and a lawyer to work for you on commission
to prove those damages
martindale.com is a good resource for that
I wish you the best.
let me try with BBB
and a pleasant day
and go for the martindale
one more question
I agree with that plan
all this is based on California law
am i right
