What are the damages I can get if a debt collector violates the law?
The law allows you to recover actual damages plus up to $1,000 in extra damages. The law also allows you to recover your attorneys’ fees and costs, which means that law firms like ours can take on your case and recover our fees when we win or settle the case. Most of our FDCPA clients don’t pay a penny out of pocket. In addition to these damages, our firm usually negotiates the complete release of the debt when dealing with debt collectors (they might have bought the debt for pennies on the dollar anyway), and sometimes even credit correction. There are no guarantees in life, but this area of the law we regularly practice within, so we would love to hear from you.
