Consumer Protection Law Lawyers In Imlay Nevada

Imlay is a small town in Pershing County, Nevada. It has an Elementary School, a General Store, a Post Office, and a Trading Post. As of 2005, the population of Imlay, Nevada, was two hundred thirty-three. It is a nearly abandoned railroad city. Its most notable feature is a series of strange buildings called Thunder Mountain. These structures were built as a monument to Native American culture by a World War II veteran who called himself Thunder. It is hauntingly bizarre. Ladders leading from its rooftops to nowhere, strange statues, and a strange energy. In the surrounding desert you will find abandoned mining structures, rusted cars, an old caterpillar tractor, and coyote dens. Michael Feldman's Whad'Ya Know public radio show featured Imlay as the Town of the week on its December 5, 2009 show. They mentioned Thunder Mountain Monument as one of the premier draws to the area.

What is consumer protection law?

Consumer protection refers to the laws designed to aid retail consumers of goods and services that have been improperly manufactured, delivered, performed, handled, or described. Such laws provide the retail consumer with additional protections and remedies not generally provided to merchants and others who engage in business transactions, on the premise that the consumers do not enjoy a sufficient bargaining position with respect to the businessmen with whom they deal and therefore should not be strictly limited by the legal rules that govern recovery for damages among businessmen. The overarching goal is to protect individuals and the interest of the public in general from unfair and misleading activity in business and commerce (such as false advertising and deceptive trade practices) and scams perpetrated by criminals (such as identity theft and pyramid schemes) that harm a substantial number of consumers.
