If a deal is too good to be true, it may be. Should one be blamed for relying on affirmative statements specifically geared to cause another to act a certain way? Or should a party be penalized for making true statements of past performance or anticipated future performance? It all depends. Generally, fraud, misrepresentation and non-disclosure claims may properly arise when a party decides to enter into a contract, purchase a product or engage in a business transaction with another and it turns out that the information exchanged to induce the transaction was false or made without any reasonable basis.
If you sense or are aware of facts or information that shows that you were not provided with information that you should have been, or if someone claims that all information was not accurately disclosed, feel free to call our office.
