Q: Can I sue a scam app???

If an app advertises winning real money, and they really don’t pay out to anybody, would that be a good reason to sue for false advertising. Especially if someone spent money on in game purchases and got nothing out of it?

It appears very likely that they were committing fraud and you were damaged by that fraud. I encourage you to sue them and report them to police authorities.

Q: I have a Florida product liability/fraud theory lawsuit. What statute do I base the claim on?
Tim Akpinar
Tim Akpinar answered on Apr 16, 2020

You are speaking of two different legal theories here. The reason your question remains open for two weeks could be that the matter suggests something more complex than one where a Florida attorney could offer a quick turnkey answer. Product liability lawsuits, to oversimplify, are based on... Read more »

You need to consult an attorney handling consumer protection matters in person, in order to show the purchase agreement and go through the whole story. One issue is whether you signed an "AS IS" contract (an unwise thing to do). If you did, that would present an obstacle to recovery,... Read more »

You might be better off reposting in the Business Formation & Business Law categories. Personal injury is for accident-injury cases and Products Liability is for people who have been injured by dangerous/defective products. Good luck

Horrible. I don’t know where you are but if you’re in Florida you can report them to the Department of Health.

Rental of tires is something I've never heard of. But I suppose that, if they put the tires on your rims and mounted the rims on your truck, they should have made sure the lug nuts were properly torqued.

If you are making something that has been around 20+ years, then you very likely will not infringe any patents. After all, that is the idea behind patents: after a patent expires (currently 20 years from the filing date of the patent application), then anyone can use whatever is disclosed in the...

Yes, if your adult son has sole title to the vehicle, he, and he alone, is legally responsible for it and the use of it. Once your child turns 18, you are not responsible in any way for his acts or omissions for use of vehicles (or anything else) that are not owned by you, not shared with you, and... Read more »

If the manufacturer agrees to replace it, then it would seem there is no longer a loss for insurance to cover. If you choose the insurance company's payment, you have the deductible to consider. Insurance carriers will offset their payments, or choose not to issue payment, if a loss is already... Read more »
