Dallas Deceptive Trade Practices Attorney

The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA) serves to protect consumers against false, misleading, or deceptive business practices, unconscionable actions, and breaches of warranty. In Texas, insurance companies are subject to the DTPA and may be held accountable for violations of the statute by their insureds. Whether an insured (individual or business) purchases insurance to protect their property, life, or health, the policyholder has every right to expect their insurance company to pay for covered losses that may arise. The Texas consumer attorneys at Smith Kendall, PLLC, are well versed with the various DTPA violations most often committed by insurance companies. We will always aggressively pursue the remedies provided under the DTPA on behalf of our clients.

Some common violations of the DTPA may include the following:

  • Representing that goods or services have characteristics or benefits which they do not have
  • Representing that goods or services are of a particular standard or quality (e.g., the coverage provided under an insurance policy) if in fact they are of another standard or quality
  • Representing an agreement offers rights, remedies, or obligations which it does not have
  • Failing to disclose information concerning goods or services known at the time of the sale of the policy if such failure to disclose the information was intended to induce the consumer policyholder into a transaction which the consumer would not otherwise have entered had the information been disclosed

The above list is by no means exhaustive and is only intended to provide a brief list of potential DTPA violations which may subject insurance companies to liability. If you believe an insurance company is guilty of committing deceptive trade practices in their dealings with you or your company, please call a qualified and experienced bad faith insurance attorney who will aggressively pursue your rights against the insurance company.
