We are all consumers of one sort or another. Our daily lives and national
economy revolve around the constant flow of goods and services from seller to
buyer. At one time there were few laws which protected the consumer as the law
generally favored the legal doctrine of "caveat emptor", or let the buyer beware,
however, in recent times because of a growing social awareness of consumer
problems brought to light by various consumer groups, legislation has been passed
which has given rise to a new legal doctrine of "caveat vendor" let the seller
One such state statue which affords the consumer a great deal of protection
is the "Texas Deceptive Trade Practices - Consumer Protection Act." It as well as
other federal regulations provide consumers with protection, relief and legal
remedies from unfair and deceptive business practices by commercial
organizations. Generally speaking, laws which govern consumer protection center
around three major subject areas;
(1) misrepresentations, fraud, and deceit;
(2) disclosure; and
(3) product safety.
In my next series of articles I will review in general terms, some of the
aspects of both federal and state laws in the field of consumer protection.
