Settlements and verdicts for consumer fraud protection cases may include:
Consumer fraud cases impact large numbers of people across the country. By pursuing a lawsuit for yourself, you can potentially help each and every one of them.
When a company makes misleading claims about the effectiveness of a product, a consumer fraud lawsuit can be filed. When a company fails to protect an individual’s private information, and their security system is breached, a lawsuit can also be filed.
Litigation can also follow invasion of privacy violations, product liability matters, and important financial decisions that are made under false pretenses. The Lyon Firm handles cases in all of the following practice areas:
This is by no means a comprehensive list. Stem cell fraud, insurance overcharging, and other fair debt collection violations are all suitable causes for legal action.

Implied warranty coverage can last as long as four years depending on state-to-state laws. However, your right to file a lawsuit for consumer fraud has a deadline as well. In Ohio, for example, there is a four-year time limit to bring fraud cases, but only a one-year window for personal injuries resulting from fraud.
Warranties are guarantees offered by companies and business proprietors. They can be written, spoken, or implied, and are essentially contracts that are under obligation to be honored. Those guarantees may include a right to repair, replace, or return an item if it is defective, or a refund for services that were unsatisfactory.
That being said, warranties often come with fine print, loopholes, and expiration dates. If you discover you have been defrauded or injured due to deceptive marketing, contact a consumer fraud lawyer at The Lyon Firm today who can help you review your rights under the warranty.
According to the National Consumer Federation (NCF), consumers have eight basic rights under the law:
These rights may seem bigger than the topic of consumer protection, but since our basic human needs are all monetized—food, housing, healthcare, and access to legal remedies—consumer protections are truly life-and-death matters.
The Lyon Firm has represented consumers from all fifty states in multi-district product liability litigations. We have won cases against some of the largest companies in the world. We are fully prepared to see your case through to the end, and seek justice for as many individuals as possible.
Consumers have a multitude of rights and protections in the United States, but that doesn’t keep bad actors from trying to defraud customers. Those rights must be guarded and enforced, and filing a consumer fraud lawsuit is one of the most direct ways to hold such companies accountable.

Class actions are typically filed when the amount of money in dispute for a single plaintiff would not justify the expense of litigating the case, but where the amount of damages of the entire class of plaintiffs would justify the cost of litigation. Basically, it’s more cost-effective to get justice for many at once instead of individually, saving everyone massive amounts of time and effort.
Moreover, without class actions, large corporate defendants would be able to cause harm over a large group of individuals without any risk of penalty. These collective cases provide safety in numbers.
The most typical forms of consumer fraud include:
A more recent arrival to this rogue’s gallery is COVID-19 scams.

These wide-scale fraud cases have the ability to harm the entire country, and class-action lawsuits can help stop them before they cause irreparable harm.
