With countless transactions happening every day in the Rocky Mountain State, it's no wonder that Colorado has a system of laws in place to help protect consumers from mistreatment. These consumer protection laws include laws to punish deceptive or unfair business practices, laws to prevent the development of monopolies, and laws to provide injured consumers with legal recourse for their injuries.
