Experience is Key in Consumer Protection Lawsuits
Beasley Allen handles class action lawsuits related to product defects and consumer protection violations. Our attorneys fight for our clients’ rights, guiding them through the court system.
Our attorneys handle class action lawsuits to recoup losses often caused by defective products, data breaches, security violations and other unfair and deceptive practices. A court may establish a class-action suit to increase efficiency. These lawsuits consolidate cases against companies that financially harm consumers.
Many class action lawsuits we handle involve product defects and violations of consumer protection laws. From defective ignition switches and exploding airbags to compromised personal information and loss of property value resulting from an environmental disaster caused by the careless actions of corporations.
We have successfully handled complex, high-profile class-action lawsuits involving retailers like Target and Home Depot and automobile makers like General Motors, Volkswagen and Fiat Chrysler. We’ve recovered billions from BP and other defendants who played a role in the Deepwater Horizon explosion.
Our insurance fraud lawyers fight for clients misled about an insurance product.
Insurance fraud happens most frequently when the insurer wrongfully denies a consumer’s claim or when an insurance company attempts to avert its commitments to the consumer as described in the contract or policy. Almost any type of insurance can be the subject of fraud – life insurance, health care insurance, auto insurance, or property insurance. Our attorneys work to ensure consumers who are insurance fraud victims can hold the company accountable.
Consumer Fraud also includes investment fraud cases such as pension plans and other investments that affect an individual or group’s retirement income. In particular, our investment fraud lawyers are investigating fraud claims violating the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
