An Attorney Helping You Use The Kansas Consumer Protection Act To Protect Your Consumer Rights

Although the FDCPA offers numerous protections for consumers, it is not without limitations. To address these shortcomings, the rights of Kansas consumers are protected under the Kansas Consumer Protection Act (KCPA).

Understanding The KCPA With Help From A Consumer Protection Lawyer

At Waddell Law Firm LLC, we help people understand their rights under the FDCPA and KCPA by taking a personal, one-on-one approach to gathering information and explaining possible actions. We then apply the law to each client's individual situation and push toward a favorable outcome through a settlement or award.

Some features of the KCPA that benefit consumers include:

  • Providing civil penalties of up to $10,000 for violations
  • Enhanced penalties of up to $20,000 for violations affecting disabled or elderly (60 years of age or older) persons
  • The statute of limitations under the KCPA is three years as opposed to one under the FDCPA
  • Many KCPA violations do not require proof of intent on the part of suppliers to be actionable under the law

For an in-depth explanation of the KCPA, the MMPA, FDCPA and other consumer rights legislation, we encourage you to contact our office and speak with our lead attorney, Scott Waddell, during a free consultation.
