QUESTIONS ABOUT CONSUMER PROTECTION LAW

Frequently Asked Questions

Whether a civil lawsuit means one person or thousands of people are looking for justice, we understand that you may have questions about your claim. Here are answers to what many of our clients want to know.

How do I know if I have a consumer protection legal case?

You start by talking to us. Investment fraud, whistle blower, and defective product lawsuits are complex legal issues that require a deep understanding of the law and an unwavering commitment to get to the truth.

Going up against a large corporation is not something to do on your own. Make an appointment for a free consultation with a Cooper Elliott lawyer who knows how to fight fraud. There, you can tell us what happened and how your life was affected by it. We'll be honest with you about whether you have a claim, and we'll share options on how to proceed to help you determine your next step.

Do I have a lawsuit claim if a product defect was unintentional?

The details of each case are taken into account, but, as a general rule, businesses are required to provide safe products to consumers.

Consumer protection laws hold companies responsible if a design flaw, manufacturing issue, or insufficient warning label results in an unsafe product, even if the company did not intend to release a defective product.

How much does it cost to hire a consumer protection attorney?

Some firms charge an hourly rate—from $100 to $400 per hour—whether they win or lose, which prevents many people from filing fraud or defective product lawsuits. At Cooper Elliott, we use a contingency-fee model, which means we are paid only if we win your lawsuit or settle your claim out of court. We discuss the details with you every step of the way so there are no surprises.

Is there a deadline for filing a fraud or defective product lawsuit?

Yes, each state has its own rules specifying how long you have to file a claim. The legal term for this is statute of limitations. For example, Ohio product liability law typically requires the claim to begin within two years of when the injury occurred.
