If you have not provided an entity permission to dial your cell phone using an “automated telephone dialing system” or with a prerecorded, artificial voice, that entity may have violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Usually, when one person has received an unsolicited telephone call or text message that violates the TCPA law, there are many others who have received the same call or text message. That is how class action TCPA lawsuits arise – multiple people who have received these phone calls band together in one lawsuit and split the pool of compensation fairly. Since the TCPA does not provide the prevailing party attorney fees, often the only way to pursue such a claim is as a class action.
Class Action Lawsuits Benefit Consumers
Since the act has been signed into legislation, numerous TCPA class action lawsuits have resulted in settlements that not only provide cash to consumers, but result in important practice changes that stop these calls..
