FAQ: What sort of things can be claimed under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act?

The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, or DTPA, protects consumers against fraudulent and unlawful business practices. Specifically, the Texas DTPA protects consumers against:

  • Breach of Warranty: Breach of warranty occurs when a business sells a product that does not live up to claims the business made about the product.
  • Unconscionable Acts: If a business takes advantage of a consumer’s naivety or ignorance around a certain product or service in a way that is deemed “grossly unfair,” then the business may be guilty of an unconscionable act.
  • False, Misleading, or Deceptive Acts: Consumers have protection and legal defense against manufacturers who may make misleading claims about a product or service or take advantage of consumers during a crisis.
