TCPA Claims - Stop Annoying Texts and Calls to Your Cell Phone
Did you know that federal law protects you from certain types of unauthorized calls and texts to your cell phone? The Telephone Consumer Protection Act ("TCPA") is a federal law that law restricts certain types of calls to your cell phone without your consent. Under the TCPA telemarketers, mortgage servicers, phone providers, retailers and businesses from using automatic calling systems, recorded voice messages (robocalls) to your cell phone. An autodialer is any type of equipment or computer software that dials phone numbers without human intervention. Even if a live person is on the other end of an unwanted call you receive, it is possible that the call was made using an autodialer. In addition, calls made using autodialers frequently result in hang-ups or lengthy periods of "dead air" before a live person comes on the line. The TCPA also regulates the use of spam fax messages and sending text messages to cell phones.
If you are receiving unauthorized and unsolicited calls and texts to your cell phone you may be entitled to monetary damages. Consumers have the right to sue for violations of the TCPA and may be entitled to recover $500 to $1,500 per violation if liability is found. If you believe your rights under the TCPA have been violated you should call Jacksonville TCPA attorney, Glenn Banner to determine if you have a case.
