CLASS ACTIONS

Orlando Class Action Attorneys Ready to Assist with Your Claims

At Normand Law, our legal team is constantly monitoring the legal arena for the various ways our clients may be impacted by a class action lawsuit. Over the years, we have successfully pursued several class action claims for our clients in Florida and United States. Class action lawsuits are civil lawsuits that occur when several defendants have been harmed and had their cases consolidated into one suit to secure a legal remedy. These cases may be brought in either state or federal court. Generally, to begin a class action claim or be included in a class, you must meet the following.

  1. A motion must be filed in court for the Plaintiff to step up on behalf of a group;
  2. Must show how your injuries are similar to those in the class action lawsuit; and
  3. This type of lawsuit is superlative for holding defendants accountable and individual lawsuits are not as beneficial or cost efficient for all involved.

CAR RENTAL INSURANCE CLASS ACTIONS

Have you hired a car rental in the United States in the past 3-5 years? If so, you may have been subjected to insurance fraud or you may not have been provided insurance that was promised in the car hire rates you purchased.

We want to help. Call us at: 407-603-6031

We represent United States and United Kingdom citizens and we have sued car rental companies in a lawsuit that alleges that legal supplemental liability insurance was not provided to overseas renters in breach of the car hire agreement. Hundreds of thousands of renters may have been victims of this scheme.

If you rented a car for use in the United States, you may not have provided the insurance that was promised.

For example, were you promised supplemental or additional liability insurance with your car hire? Were you promised uninsured motorist insurance (that protects you from crazy drivers) with your car hire? In reality, you may not have received any insurance or you may have been a victim of insurance fraud under the laws of some States.

Were you charged hidden or illegal fees? You may have a right to your money back even if, thankfully, you were not in an accident because your rates included charges for legal insurance that you maybe never got. We are currently investigating claims. Call us if you would like a free case review.

Whether you rented directly from the company on their website or from an independent car rental broker we may be able to help. It does not matter what U.S. State you rented the car in – you may have a claim. We are researching alleged violations in all 50 states.

CONSUMER PROTECTION CLASS ACTIONS UNDER THE TELEPHONE CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT

Stop Cell Phone Abuse in Florida and Earn $500 to $1,500/Text

Nothing is worse than answering a phone call only to find it is an unwanted robocall with a telemarketing message.  Except that is, maybe getting an ad in your private text messages reserved for friends and family. Everyone should work together to keep our cell phones and text inbox free from the spam that has destroyed our email and home phones.

Under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), a federal law passed by Congress back in 1991, you must give express consent to receive certain types of calls; additionally, you have the right to prohibit these companies from continuing to call you. If you receive an unwanted call for which you did not provide express consent, you may be entitled under the TCPA to between $500 and $1,500.

Orlando Law Firm Will Help Protect You From Robocall Spam

Normand Law PLLC represents consumers who get unwanted calls from telemarketers, debt collection agencies, banks and other spammers who call or text cell phones.

The TCPA protects all of us from unwanted calls or text messages to our cell phones.  A caller must have express written consent to call your cell phone or send you a text if they use an automated dialing system (“robocall”).

A robocall might be an automated phone call made using an autodialer (see below), but it also might be a call containing a pre-recorded message. In other words, even if the unwanted phone call appears to be from an actual person, the call might still be an unlawful robocall if it utilized an autodialer.  In fact, many of our clients report that they answered the phone call, heard a click, and then seconds later heard from an actual, live person.  This is often a telltale sign that an autodialer has dialed your number; i.e., it didn’t process the call over to a live agent until it was confirmed that you had answered your phone.

An autodialer is any computer software or equipment possessing the capability or ability to dial phone numbers without human intervention. Thus, even if an actual, live person, rather than a prerecorded message, is on the other end of the unwanted call, it is still perfectly possible that the call originated from an autodialer. Of course, if the other end of the phone call is a pre-recorded message, the call probably (indeed, almost certainly) originated from an autodialer.

You have the simple right to tell callers, including debt collectors, to stop calling.

You may be able to receive $500 or even $1,500 for each negligent or intentional call or text that violates the law.

Examples of illegal calls for which you may have a claim: 

  • You are wrongly called by a computer dialing system looking for someone else;
  • You are contacted after requesting that a company stop calling;
  • You get a machine-dialed telephone call or text offering to sell you something;
  • You get a text message from a business that you did not give express written consent to contact you.

The following are typical Text Spammers and Robocallers:

  • Debt collectors;
  • Creditors and student loan processors;
  • Banks, credit card and check-cashing companies;
  • Mortgage companies;
  • Retail and online stores;
  • Auto dealers;
  • Timeshare sellers and resellers;
  • Cell phone App companies;
  • Marketing sweepstakes offering “prizes” such as a free cruise, etc.;
  • Any business that takes your number and then calls it with unauthorized test or recorded messages advertisements;
  • Companies that sell your phone number to spammers and robocallers.

If you get a Robocall, find out who is calling and ask them to send you information documenting the offer. Our firm does research on how companies procured your number, and we work to get them to stop harassing our clients. We litigate and prosecute these cases on a contingency-fee basis, which means you don’t have to pay us any money unless we win or settle your case.
