We are often asked “OK I’ve been abused by a debt collector but if I sue what can I get out of the suit and how much will it cost me?” We understand this question because people who are dealing with debt collectors typically don’t have a lot of money to spend on legal fees.
We have written a consumer guide on the four benefits to suing under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). This short guide includes the following topics:
You can recover up to $1000 in statutory damages even if you were not injured;
You can recover actual damages for any actual harm you suffered, including emotional distress;
You can recover attorney fees to pay your lawyer – that is the collector pays for your lawyer!;
You can have the collector pay for your litigation costs and expenses in bringing the case against the collector; and
We hope this short guide will be helpful to you. If you like it, please feel free to comment on it or indicate that it is helpful to you.
