What Is the Telephone Consumer Protection Act or TCPA?
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), enacted by Congress and signed into law in 1991, serves as a safeguard for individuals seeking relief from unwanted and intrusive telemarketing practices.
Americans don’t need to put up with the frustration and disruption caused by frequent, unwanted pre-recorded messages or dropped calls, leaving individuals on the line with no one to speak to before abruptly disconnecting.
Moreover, malicious calls and texts mean to scam you out of your money or personal information – and criminals should never use the phone to conduct their crimes.
Our nationwide team of knowledgeable and compassionate attorneys concentrates on helping clients who need legal guidance and support when criminals violate TCPA protections.
In many instances, TCPA victims represent a broader class of individuals who were harmed by the same unlawful telemarketing practices.
With our extensive experience in litigating TCPA claims, we have successfully advocated for our clients on both individual and class action levels.
Unsolicited calls and texts not only disrupt people’s lives but they can steal confidential information and money. If you fell victim to a TCPA violation, contact a trusted national TCPA attorney today at 800-400-6808 for your free case evaluation.
What Are the Main TCPA Requirements?
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) provides several key consumer protections and telemarketing regulations.
These requirements include:
- National Do Not Call Registry. Phone solicitors cannot call individuals who registered their numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry.
- Time restrictions for residential calls. Phone solicitors can only call residential numbers between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. in the local time zone of the residence, preventing disruptive calls during late or early hours.
- Consent for artificial voice calls. Recipients must express prior consent before receiving artificial voice calls or recordings to residential numbers, ensuring that individuals have explicitly agreed to receive such calls.
- Restrictions on autodialers and simulated voices. Autodialers, recordings, and simulated voices may not call mobile phones or recipients who must pay for the call themselves, preventing intrusive, unwanted, and expensive communications.
- Prohibited use of automatic telephone dialing systems (ATDS). ATDS cannot call emergency lines, hospital or medical service lines, guest rooms or patient rooms in healthcare facilities, and numbers assigned to paging services or cellular providers where the recipient pays for the call.
- Consent for pre-recorded voice messages. Unless for emergency purposes or exempted by the FCC, initiating a call to a residential line using an artificial or pre-recorded voice message requires the prior express consent of the called party, safeguarding against unsolicited automated messages.
- Fax advertisement restrictions. Advertisers may not send unsolicited faxes, except when an established business relationship exists or the recipient voluntarily provided their fax number for public distribution.
- Exceptions for pre-existing business relationships. Limited exceptions apply for unsolicited fax advertisements sent based on an established business relationship that existed before July 9, 2005, provided the sender already possessed the recipient’s fax number.
These TCPA requirements promote consumer privacy, protect against unwanted telemarketing communications, and ensure that individuals have control over the calls they receive.

The Growing Problem of Robocalls and Spam Texts
According to recent data from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the top five robocall complaints were auto warranties, credit cards, insurance or healthcare, lawsuits or criminal charges, and Social Security phishing scams.
Even with new rules from the FCC, complaints about spam texts are up 150 percent with more than 47 billion spam texts going out every year.
Most spam texts are scams. Text scammers pretend to represent banks, package delivery services, or part of pig butchering scams.
As the problem grows, and spammers find new ways to scam Americans, we stay on top of the technology, evolving statutes, and case law, ensuring we provide our clients with the most effective legal representation.
TCPA Violations Damage Consumers
Robocalls pose significant threats to consumer privacy and finances. Fraudulent or scam-related robocalls target vulnerable individuals with deceptive schemes.
Robocall scams may steal your money, identity, and personal information.

What Damages Can You Recover in a TCPA Violations Case?
Violations of New Opt-Out Requirements
Effective July 20, 2023, the TCPA mandates that autodialed, prerecorded, and artificial voice marketing calls or texts to wireless numbers must include an automated opt-out mechanism, allowing consumers to easily request the cessation of further calls. Failure to provide this opt-out option violates TCPA.
Many companies disregard this law. Most, if not all spammers and scammers are not going to provide an opt-out phone number.
Violations of the Do Not Call Registry
Consumers who take the proactive step to register their numbers on the do not call list expect relief from unwanted telemarketing calls.
When companies disregard your choice to not contact you, it undermines the purpose of the registry and violates the TCPA.
This is another way we aggressively pursue compensation for our clients. TCPA violations also carry the possibility of criminal prosecutions arising from willful violations.
How much is a TCPA violation?
Courts can order violators of telemarketing call regulations to pay consumers up to $1,500 per call, which can significantly add up in cases involving multiple violations.
Moreover, new laws have increased fines to include an additional penalty of up to $10,000 per violation.
Liability for Illegal Robocalls Was Extended to Four Years
Sometimes, the damage caused by telemarketers and scammers doesn’t crystallize until years later when a phone number, bank information, password, medical history, or Social Security number shows up on the dark web or in the hands of a criminal organization.
Thanks to new laws that have extended the timeframe to recover compensation for losses, we can reach back in time and sue companies or individuals responsible for stealing information or money as far back as four years.
In addition to statutory damages, consumers may also seek actual damages resulting from TCPA violations.
Actual damages include quantifiable losses suffered by individuals, such as financial losses caused by unwanted calls and compromised data.
Illegally spoofed robocalls calls and texts cause annoyance, frustration, and inconvenience. They interrupt important activities or personal moments and sometimes prey on the elderly and vulnerable.
Even if you think a TCPA violation has not occurred, call our office to find out if you can seek compensation. A no-obligation, free consultation with a telemarketing abuse lawyer is available by calling 800-400-6808
