Consumer protection laws are designed to prevent companies from taking advantage of consumers through fraud, scams, misleading actions, or poor service. If a company violates a consumer protection law, consumers may be able to take legal action against the company to protect their rights and recover money damages. Since consumer protection violations often affect a large number of people, consumer protection lawsuits are often pursued as class action lawsuits.
Federal consumer protection laws include:
- Truth in Lending Act
- Fair Credit Reporting Act
- Fair Housing Act
- Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
Illinois consumer protection laws include:
- Illinois Lemon Law
- Illinois Consumer Fraud Act
- Illinois Home Repair Fraud Act
