The lawyers, such as those at the law firm of Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata, & Siegel, P.C., know and understand to types of transactions that may violate the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act. The District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act lists 36 examples of how one can utilize it and does not depend on whether the consumer was in fact, misled, deceived or damaged. In fact, it is a violation of the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act "whether or not any consumer is in fact misled, deceived, or damaged". The District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act has as one of it purposes to raise the level of service and goods provided. Therefore, presumably if the consumer observes a violation he or she need not have been damaged by it to file a lawsuit and seek relief. Other sections in this blog will describe the type of relief that is available, even if you were not damaged. Examples of violations of the Consumer Protection Act, whether or not any consumer is in fact misled, deceived or damaged, include representations that goods or services were approved or certified or contain certain ingredients or characteristics that they in fact do not have. Additionally, if a product or service is represented to have a benefit or is of a certain quantity or may be used for certain purposes, that too would be a violation of the District of Columbia Consumer Protection Act.
