Consumers trust in companies to provide accurate information about the goods and services they are offering. False advertising can be harmful to both consumers and competing businesses. Inaccurate or misleading statements can exclude or misconstrue important facts and information that can have economic consequences on those affected. In some cases, false advertising can even affect one’s health and safety.
False advertising lawsuits may involve:
- Misleading labeling
- Deceptive advertisements
- Failure to disclose information
- Bait-and-switch scams
- Unfair competition
There are federal and state laws in place to protect consumers from such advertising. It is illegal for a business to make deceptive claims about their product’s price, quality or purpose. Consumers have the right to seek compensation for financial loss and other damages experienced as a result of false advertising.
