SACRAMENTO (Legal Newsline) – A Kern, California resident has filed a class-action lawsuit against a company that handles Social Security disability claims over allegations it called him using an automatic telephone dialing system.
Leroy Williams filed a complaint on behalf of all others similarly situated on June 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California against Injury Help Network alleging violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in January, he began to receive calls from the defendant using an automated telephone dialing system to sell and solicit its services. The plaintiff, even though not a customer of the defendant, alleges he incurred charges for the incoming calls. The plaintiff holds Injury Help Network responsible because the defendant allegedly contacted the plaintiff without prior consent and not for emergency purposes.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks $500 in statutory damages for each and every violation; treble damages, as provided by statute, up to $1,500 for each and every violation; and all other relief that the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Todd M. Friedman and Adrian R. Bacon of the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman in Beverly Hills, California.
