People get sued everyday. Civil lawsuits that usually have to do with debt. Banks suing credit card customers. Automobile lenders filing suit after repossessing a car to recover their damages. Landlord tenant disputes. I could go on all day. What do you do when you get sued by a Payday lender? Well I know what a lot of people do. The reason I know is because we hear these stories every day from our clients. Most people ignore these lawsuits. They don’t show up in court. Their lender ends up winning a default judgement and the plaintiff also ends up receiving everything they asked for in their suit.
They can even ask for things that aren’t completely honest and true because not showing up allows the creditor to tell the judge whatever story they choose to tell. Don’t believe for one moment that lawyers don’t lie. In most cases the judge will grant all that’s asked for because there’s nobody representing you and disputing the information from the creditor. In addition, many Judges feel that by not showing up you are disrespecting the court. They stamp these things and then creditors can start looking for, and in some cases garnishing your money and taking your things dependent upon where you live and what the laws are. So here’s the thing. It’s okay to lose a lawsuit. It’s not a death sentence. BUT, sometimes the plaintiff doesn’t have A GOOD CLAIM to begin with, but you didn’t show up to defend yourself and you lose by default. Here’s what I mean. Payday loan lenders assume that you won’t show up.
Sometimes, they include language in their contracts that’s in direct contravention to the laws of your state. They include language that would make the contract null and void if only you were there to defend. So many people lose in court because they don’t take the time and spend a few dollars to defend themselves. Many times defense doesn’t pay off, but when it does pay it pays off big time. The whole moral of this story? You get sued get a lawyer. I know lawyers are expensive. Many lawyers will provide you with free consultations and if not perhaps it’ll cost you $200 for an hour to have a lawyer read a contract. That’s all you need. For starters anyway. You might be surprised to find that there is language in your contract that turns that contract into a nullity. Another words you win. If you do lose you do have an out.
