COBRA Notice Class Action Lawsuit

If you are someone who qualified for COBRA health insurance following any relevant life event, including resignation or termination, you will have received a COBRA notice from your employer. If this COBRA notice was in any way deficient or confusing, you may be eligible to join the Deficient COBRA Notice Class Action Lawsuit.

A COBRA notice is deemed deficient if your employer did not:

  • Identify a termination date for your current health care coverage,
  • Provide the name of the plan administrator,
  • Provide information regarding where COBRA premiums should be mailed, and/or
  • Include an election form.
3M hearing loss lawsuit

As we speak, the attorneys at Shamis & Gentile, P.A. are investigating cases from veterans from around the country who suffered partial or total hearing loss as a result of being given defective 3M Combat Arms Earplugs. These earplugs were distributed by the U.S. military for many thousands of soldiers, including those headed to combat zones, from 2003 to 2015. The problem with these particular earplugs was a design flaw, which rendered them too short to be properly inserted into the ear canal. This, in turn, made it impossible for the earplugs to provide the proper amount of protection and, ultimately, led to significant hearing damage and hearing loss for the unfortunate veterans who wore them.

It has been said that the company behind the manufacture of the defective earplugs was aware of the issues with the product, but continued to market them regardless.

If you were one of the veterans who utilized these earplugs and suffered hearing loss as a result, it is imperative that you get in touch with an attorney to protect your claim.

Class Action Credit Card Identity Theft

It is imperative that retailers and businesses, regardless of size, adhere to the rules and regulations as laid out in the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA). These rules and regulations are there to aid in reducing the prominence of credit card fraud, and if ignored, can have dire consequences for consumers. Two of the most important rules, as laid out by FACTA, are in relation to credit card receipts. In short, receipts should not:

  1. Reveal the credit card’s expiration date, and
  2. Display more than five of the card’s final digits.

If you have been given a credit card receipt that does not adhere to these rules, you will be eligible to join the FACTA Credit Cards class action lawsuit.

False Labeled CBD Oil

Did you know that recent third-party testing has found that many CBD supplements contain barely detectable traces of CBD?

Despite this fact, the companies that are producing these supplements and products are marketing them as being able to provide all of the powerful benefits of CBD.

If you have recently bought misleading or falsely labeled CBD supplements, you may be eligible to join this False Labeled CBD Products class action lawsuit investigation.

Florida Email Spam

Are you aware of the fact that the law in Florida prohibits fraudulent, false, and/ or deceptive spam? If you have received spam emails, you may be able to join the Florida spam email class action lawsuit investigation. Emails that qualify you to join this lawsuit include:

  • Emails received from a business based in Florida that you have never heard of,
  • Emails received from a business based in Florida that you have no relationship with, and
  • Emails received from a business based in Florida that contained false or misleading information in the subject line.
mortgage payment fee

Those who have been charged a “convenience fee” by their mortgage provider may wish to look into joining a mortgage payment fee class action lawsuit investigation.

The question is, what are “convenience fees”, really?

Companies that are currently under siege are those who charged an extra fee for their clients to pay their mortgage repayments online or by phone. While there are numerous merchants out there who are legally allowed to charge “convenience fees”, the terms laid out in most mortgage agreements prohibit these fees from existing. Standard form mortgage agreements allow loan servicers to pass along only the actual costs of processing payments (as noted above, and usually no more than a few cents). By tacking on excessive amounts, these companies are not only violating the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Rosenthal Act but also their own contractual agreements.
