Those phone calls from telemarketers are more than just annoying. Under federal law, they can also be illegal. Consumers have successfully taken action against telemarketers and recovered money for violations of the law. You do not just have to deal with it when telemarketers are breaking the law. You can hire an experienced attorney to file a lawsuit on your behalf.

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act has been on the books for over three decades. Unwanted phone calls (on landlines) and faxes were spiraling out of control. Fast forward to today, and the problem is even worse as technology has given telemarketers new tools to annoy consumers. Now, they can reach you where you are through calls to your mobile device and junk texts. Given the extensive reach of telemarketers, you must take strong legal action to stop them.

How the TCPA Protects You From Unwanted Calls

The TCPA prohibits the following:

  • Phone calls to residences during the night and early morning hours
  • Phone calls to residences with automated voices or recordings
  • Text messaging someone else on a wireless phone using an automatic telephone dialing system
  • Phone calls for five years after you have told the telemarketer not to contact you

Telemarketers are required to maintain a do-not-call registry. As a consumer, you have the right to place yourself on a national Do-Not-Call registry that telemarketers must honor. If you are on the registry, companies can only call you with permission or if you have recently done business with them within the last 18 months. Some businesses break these rules, thinking that they can get away with it.

Potential Penalties in a TCPA Case

The government can take an enforcement action against a company that violates provisions of the TCPA. Even more important for your purposes, the telemarketer can also be held liable to you in a civil lawsuit. It does not matter whether you suffered a financial loss. By virtue of breaking the law, the telemarketer must pay.

Usually, a civil lawsuit against a telemarketer proceeds as a class action lawsuit. If the telemarketer is making unwanted calls or sending texts to you, chances are that they are making thousands or millions of these communications.

The TCPA provides that you can recover the following in a lawsuit against the telemarketer:

  • $500 per violation of the TCPA
  • Triple damages if the defendant was found to have willfully violated the law

There are no statutory limits on damages. There have been cases where defendants have been ordered to pay or have settled cases for tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. The court will consider the realities of the situation, meaning that they may not order a defendant to pay billions of dollars if they made millions of calls. However, you could get up to $1500 for unwanted phone calls and texts.

Why You Need a Mississippi TCPA Lawyer

If you want legal relief for these unwanted calls, you should contact an experienced lawyer first. Not only would you want to recover money for your inconveniences, but you would also want to put a stop to these calls.

TCPA cases can be complex and involve a lot of money. In addition, the way that courts interpret the TCPA can change over time based on new technology. For example, text messaging did not exist when the law was passed. It was not until 2007 that a federal court applied the law to unwanted text messages. Many of these cases can turn on volumes of evidence.

When you have a potential TCPA violation, you are usually dealing with a large company on the other side of the case. They have likely hired expensive lawyers to either minimize their liability or get them out of paying anything in the first place.

For a TCPA case, you need an attorney with this specialized experience to hold the defendant legally responsible.

What Our Clients Say
Christopher Graves
I think reviews from consumer are important; yet, reviews from other attorneys are just as important, in my opinion. Lawyers know the level of integrity, skill, and value-added of their colleagues. With that being said, Daniel Ware can be summed up in sentence: Daniel Ware is your favorite lawyer's favorite lawyer. If I had a civil, criminal, or bankruptcy matter, Daniel would the lawyer I would call.
Kelvin Beverly
Mr. Ware is a very dependable and committed lawyer. He kept me in the loop of what was going on and most importantly he never stopped fighting for my case. That old saying 'He was A-1 from Day-1." Thanks Mr Ware.
Jennifer Bennett
Daniel Ware is an amazing lawyer; very professional and committed. This has been stated over and over again in the reviews. However, he's more than that. Intelligent, compassionate and empathetic you can trust your concerns will be handled. I could go on, but the fact is I'd trust no one else for my affairs. The Ware Law Firm is all I needed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Let’s Face It — You Have Questions.
Can I sue a charitable organization?

Although the TCPA does not apply to a charitable organization, it must honor the Do-Not-Call registry if your name is on it.

Can anyone call me if I am not on the Do-Not-Call list?

Yes, but they are still not allowed to make robocalls. If you have told them to stop calling you, they must honor the request for five years.

What if someone robocalls a business?

The TCPA applies to residential phone lines and cell phones. It is a consumer protection act.
