The Florida Deceptive and
Unfair Trade Practices Act
FDUPTA is in place to protect consumers who have been taken advantage of by companies that use unfair sales tactics. This law also makes companies pay for consumers' attorney's fees. For this reason, we are able to take these cases on a contingency fee basis, no matter how much money is at stake. We have handled a wide variety of cases in this area of law against many types of companies, ranging from car dealerships to cemeteries and funeral homes.
Some of the most common FDUPTA violations include:
- Using false advertising to sell a product
- Making false claims about a competitor's product
- Attempting to eliminate other competitors
- Utilizing bait and switch tactics
- Participating in phone or internet scams
We Can Help You Seek Damages
If your rights under the FDUPTA have been violated, you have the right to recover actual damages in addition to attorney's fees. However, it is important to understand that this act does not apply to claims for personal injury or death, or a claim for damage to most residential or commercial property. Speak to Stabinski Law to find out if you are eligible to seek damages. Our firm has been assisting victims of unfair trade practices for more than 115 years combined, so you can trust that we have what it takes to build an effective case.
