Professional consumer fraud attorneys at Lee Law Group are dedicated to making sure that business owners are following California’s consumer protection laws to ensure that these laws are protecting you, the consumer, from deceptive practices. If you have been misled by a business advertising a false claim about the practices that they offer, such as a roofing contractor falsely claiming that they can arrange financing for roof repair jobs to a homeowner, you have the right to address their breach of warranty.
What is a Violation of Consumer Rights?
The California Unfair Competition Law (UCL) protects consumers from any “unlawful, unfair or fraudulent business act or practice and unfair, deceptive, untrue or misleading advertising.” Any business practice that participates in this type of behavior is committing a violation of your consumer rights. This law states that businesses that fail to comply with this state’s consumer protection laws may warrant a penalty or sanction. Under San Diego law individuals or private party plaintiffs are permitted to file lawsuits against actions that violate the UCL on behalf of the general public.
