Thomas A. King, P.C.
Consumer Fraud - Our Firm helps clients who feel that certain facts about a product have either been misrepresented or concealed from them and eventually caused damage or harm to either them or their property.
A fraud action must be based upon (1) a false representation of (2) an existing,
material fact, (3) upon which the plaintiff justifiably relied (4) to his
damage. It may be committed
by one party remaining silent when he has information he should reveal to the
Misrepresentation by a well digger that the depth of a well was 180 feet
when it was 54 feet. Stating in a
brochure that a swimming pool dealer was qualified and had installed scores of
pools when he had not. That an auto
was new when it had been wrecked. Auto
had body damage and mechanical problems. A
contract not to compete about which the owner had said, “was not worth the
paper it was written on,” when the employer knew it would be enforced.
