Understanding the Kansas Consumer Protection Act
Crucial to consumer protection in Lenexa, KS, is the Kansas Consumer Protection Act (KCPA). While the entire country is protected at a federal level, individuals in Lenexa, Kansas City, and Prairie Village, KS, can benefit from additional protections designed specifically for those residing in the state.
Your consumer protection attorneys will discuss the specifics of your case and how the Kansas Consumer Protection Act applies specifically to you. However, key elements of the Act include:
- Fines of up to $10,000 for any violation of the Act
- Larger fines of up to $20,000 in cases affecting vulnerable people, such as the elderly or disabled
- A statute of limitations of up to three years, giving people adequate time to consult a lawyer and build a case
Each violation is considered in court on its own merits, and so multiple violations in a short period can lead to bankruptcy for the offender. Of course, a bankrupt business is no longer able to perpetrate fraud and any form of misleading practice to the benefit of Lenexa, KS residents.
