Settling An HSBC Lawsuit

Law

HSBC is the largest and the most successful non-profit consumer debt settlement company in the United States. It has used a process called “settlement funding” to help people get out of debt. This process, also called “settlement funding” or “re-structuring”, allows people to pay less money per month on their credit card bills than what they would owe had the debts were reordered. The original amount may have been ordered by the court, but because of the way that settlement funding transfers the payment to the person that owes the money, people often save thousands of dollars.

HSBC Lawsuit

In a case in Texas, the plaintiff tried to sue a loan company for not meeting its contractual agreement. In this case, the lawsuit was thrown out because the bank was protected by state law. The bank was protected because it was under a contract with the federal government that HSBC was required to follow. According to the contract, HSBC is prohibited from any sort of collection activities. When this contract was violated, the settlement funding company took the issue to the Texas state court. After a brief hearing, the state court found in favor of the loan company, and the plaintiff was forced to pay his creditors back the money that he’d lost in the lawsuit.

The problem was that this particular case was much different than the one described above.

The initial complaint in the Texas overdraft fees lawsuit alleged a much larger amount of money. This turned out to be an instance in which the state court did not have jurisdiction over the matter. Because of a quirk in Texas state law, the original amount the plaintiff wanted to be paid was $30 million. The state court determined that the original amount was owed only to the bank, and HSBC could not be forced to pay that money because the contract with the government had already been superseded.

Because of this, and other concerns, hsbc settled the overdraft fees lawsuit without going to trial.

The company then entered into what’s known as a “issuing and collection” contract with the bank. This means that the bank simply agrees not to pursue the original amount if the plaintiff does not settle the debt. If the plaintiff does settle, both parties move on toward a final agreement.

The amount of money that banks lose when these types of lawsuits are resolved is actually well worth the money they save by avoiding the risk of going to trial.

It’s all based on the standard rule of thumb that the amount of a lawsuit is directly related to the amount of damage. If the bank does its job, it will be able to get most of the money back from the original settlement, and if the plaintiff doesn’t settle the debt, then the bank has to recover the entire original amount. Settling the case prevents the bank from having to go through that process.

There are a few different scenarios that will result in the bank having to pay the money awarded in a HSBC lawsuit.

If the plaintiff settles the case and does not go ahead with a class action suit, the money awarded will be dispersed evenly between all class members. If a class action suit goes forward, and a settlement agreement is reached, then the money won’t be divided among the plaintiffs. Instead, the money is divided among the members of the class, according to their percentage of the total award. This is why it’s important to try to settle a lawsuit rather than go to trial – the amount of money you can get will more than make up for the cost of going to court, plus the time and stress you’ll have to endure.
