Truth in Lending Act Violation Attorneys Who Fight For You

The Carlson Law Firm is currently investigating a Truth in Lending Act violation on behalf of American Express credit card holders. Were you an AMEX cardholder in May, June and/or July 2016? You may be eligible for compensation.

What is TILA?

TILA is a federal law intended to assure a meaningful disclosure of credit terms. This is so the consumer will be able to compare the various credit terms available and avoid the uninformed use of credit while establishing a fair and competitive financial marketplace. TILA’s origins date back to 1968 when the law was enacted by Congress, which later gave the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau the authority to write the regulations that implement TILA.

Am I Eligible?

You are eligible to claim sizable damages when lenders violate their obligations to properly inform consumers about their credit accounts. U.S. lending laws give credit card issuers a lot of freedom to set terms, but in exchange, they are subject to stiff penalties when they don’t disclose their terms properly. When a credit card issuer provides you a document that has incorrect key information or is missing key information, it has broken the law. As a credit consumer, you are eligible to claim statutory damages from your issuer when it breaks the law in that way.

Why Should I Care?

It’s in the interest of every American to make sure that our lending institutions are following the law in all their dealings. It was a breakdown in the oversight of our lending industry that helped bring about the financial crisis of 2007-08. And it was largely consumers who bore the consequences of that breakdown and failure. Bringing these claims sends a strong, positive message to the banks that we consumers are watching them carefully and that we will hold them accountable.
