Misrepresentations occur when an individual relies on a false statement to their detriment.
Misrepresentations can either be negligent (i.e., made in a way that falls below the level of prudence required), fraudulent (i.e., statements made when the person knows them to be false), reckless, or innocent. You may be entitled to certain remedies if a misrepresentation was made to you which induced you into entering a contract.
Any time that you rely on a misrepresentation to your detriment, you may have a claim against the individual or company that made the false statement. In particular, you may be entitled to damages or the ability to rescind a contract you entered into. To the extent the misrepresentation induced you to buy a product, there are also specific provisions under the Sale of Goods Act or Consumer Protection Act that can protect you.
Regardless of the particular context, our firm can assist you in bringing a misrepresentation claim or defend against one.
