What damages can I receive if my case is successful?
Like other lawsuits, most consumer protection cases settle before going to trial; many even before the lawsuit is filed with the court. However, the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act permits a court to award both the resulting economic damages and mental anguish damages; if the conduct is done “knowingly” then three times the economic damages may be awarded; if the conduct is done “intentionally” then three times the mental anguish damages may be awarded in addition.Get A Hold Of Us Now!
