Types of Misrepresentations
There are three types of misrepresentations that you should be aware of as they may affect your claim:
- Innocent Misrepresentation - Unwittingly, an individual may make false statements without the realization that they are untrue. In this event, rescission of the contract is generally granted as a remedy to undo any harm caused by these erroneous declarations.
- Negligent Misrepresentation - Occurs when a party makes a statement with no effort to verify the accuracy. If found guilty, this could result in contract rescission and even further financial reimbursement for losses suffered due to the inaccurate information provided.
- Fraudulent Misrepresentation - A deceitful act in which someone knowingly misleads or makes false claims to another person for the purpose of making them enter an agreement. In such cases, victims are not only able to void any existing contracts but can also pursue legal actions against those responsible and demand compensation for harm done.
