WVA Consumer Protection

Consumer Protection Lawyers in West Virginia

Fighting for the rights of West Virginia consumers

Fair competition is at the heart of commercial sales. Businesses must be truthful when they deal with the buying public. Consumers have the right to hold companies who engage in unfair business practices accountable for false advertising, bait and switch tactics, and other deceptive practices. In this age of technical purchases, companies must make certain consumer accounts are secure.

The West Virginia law firm of Paulson & Nace, PLLC, a family-owned and operated practice, knows the federal and state laws that protect consumers. We make sure businesses stop unwarranted marketing and sales efforts. We advise consumers and businesses on how to get compensation from businesses who violate the consumer protection and fair competition laws. We fight for each consumer who has suffered financial and personal harm because businesses did not play by the rules. If you were treated unfairly by a business, our team of consumer protection lawyers is ready to explain all of your consumer and personal remedies.

Righting wrongs on behalf of West Virginia consumers

Paulson & Nace assists clients in West Virginia with a broad spectrum of consumer protection and safety issues, including:

  • Data Breaches. Today, many consumers buy products online. Almost every company that sells a product has a shopping cart, or some other means, for the purchase to be made through a computer, smartphone, or other computer device. Sellers have a duty to make sure your credit and personal information are safe. Purchases, email accounts, social media, and other platforms sellers use should be protected from hackers. Accounts should not be sold to third parties without the consent of the consumer. We hold violators accountable for the damages caused by these lapses in data security.
  • Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practice Act Violations. The Federal Trade Commission Act and other laws protect consumers from companies who compete unfairly. Paulson & Nace protects consumers from deceptive guarantees, false advertising, renewing contracts without consumer consent, charging more than they advertise, and other competitive wrongs.
  • Defective Products. When you suffer harm because of a company’s willingness to put profits above all, you have legal options. Paulson & Nace changed the way defective drug cases are presented, and we have built our reputation on the work we do on behalf of the injured. If a dangerous consumer product, medication, or medical device caused you harm, we want to help.

Any West Virginia resident who uses a credit card, buys a product online, or purchases a product because of advertising promises has a right to know the information provided will be kept secure, and the product will work as marketed. As technology expands the ways in which consumers make purchases, entertain themselves, and communicate with others, it becomes more and more essential to make sure consumers are protected from predatory or deceptive sales or collection practices. When a consumer suffers financial or physical harm, the consumer protection lawyers at Paulson & Nace is here to advocate for your rights and correct the wrong.
