U.S. workers are the backbone of the country but far too many times they are paid the wages they deserve and are legally entitled to. When these workers aren’t paid as they should be, making ends meet is difficult at best. Yet this is exactly when creditors start harassing for money. Several federal laws protect workers from wage theft and debt collector harassment.
Current Negligence And Personal Injury Lawsuits
- Commercial Plane Accident Lawsuit – every year across the country passengers get seriously hurt or fatally injured due to the negligence of others. Injured passengers and the families of those who died may be entitled to seek justice and compensation for their losses.
- Debt Collector Phone Harassment Lawsuit – robocalling, auto dialing, and harassing debt collection calls are illegal, and consumers have the legal right to make the calls stop. Action can be taken again debt collections, student loan servicers, banks, mortgage companies and other creditors under two separate federal laws.
- Helicopter Accident Lawsuit – traveling by helicopter is one of the most dangerous ways to travel, especially when pilot error is considered the most common reason for crashes. Helicopter crashes occur at a much higher rate then plane crashes, and private helicopter crashes occur even more.
- Hurricane Harvey Insurance Lawsuit – Some insurance providers are unfairly denying, delaying, and lowballing Hurricane Harvey damage claims filed by residential and commercial property owners. We don’t let them get away with it.
