There are a few key types of compensation we can help you win.
- Economic damages: This refers to compensation you're owed for tangible, generally monetary losses. For example, you were denied employment due to background check errors, or your bank lowered your credit limit because of credit reporting errors (or any other similar financial harm).
- Non-economic damages: The purpose of this is to compensate you for any negative emotional consequences you're experiencing. For example, anxiety, emotional distress or any other similar mental health issues.
- Statutory damages: The FCRA provides up to $1000 per violation for any wilful violations. Meaning the actions were reckless or intentional.
- Punitive damages: These can be substantially larger than the statutory damages and serve to punish & deter companies from committing further violations.
