Insurance TCPA Settlement
- Claims can be filed at settlement website
- Administrator can be contacted for help
- Important settlement deadlines apply
When a group of people feel their National Do-Not-Call Registry requests have been infringed upon the end result can often be a class action lawsuit. The Plaintiffs in Biringer v. First Family Insurance, Inc., et al. filed suit as a result of claims that first Family Insurance made calls that were in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. It appears the litigation is nearing an end as both parties have recently agreed to a settlement amount of $2,900,000. First Family Insurance denies any wrong doing in the matter but has agreed to settle the case to avoid the uncertainty and costs of further litigation. Class Members who wish to file a claim can do so by going to the Insurance TCPA Settlement page and clicking the File a Claim link.
