Consumer Protection Law
Consumer Protection Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Having purchased the item as is, you still have rights. Specifically, you may pursue a claim based on misrepresentation, fraud and unjust enrichment. This may be handled by a direct lawyer demand for payment and lawsuit respectively, working on commission fee basis. It may also be considered through threat and complaint to the BBB and attorney general office.
Is that clear and acceptable or may I clarify anything?
Thank you. I initially gave the deadline before I filed a complaint with Florida Consumer Services....they have a complaint form online and will mediate for you. The cost of a new roofover is $5500.00 to $5800.00.....would it be best to use a lawyer or the Consumer Protection Service or BBB in your opinion.
Best to use a lawyer locally
with experience in consumer protection
who can negotiate and if needed, sue
this is not a small amount
and agencies tend to be slow and inefficient relative to courts
You can find local counsel through martindale.com if needed
and make sure its a contingency fee of no more than 33%
Great...thanks so much for the help!
