How Long Will It Take For My Credit Report To Be Fixed?

Video Transcription

Hi everyone this is John Soumilas. Today, I’m addressing another frequently asked question. Which is “How long will it take for my background report or credit report to be corrected?”

The answer is usually in 30 to 60 days after we bring suit, we see companies taking action to correct errors on background reports that have cost people jobs or apartments, or credit reports that have caused our clients to be denied loans or other credit.

It usually takes about 30 to 60 days to effectuate proper process of a lawsuit and to get the company that made the error to hire a lawyer and to have to respond to our allegations about what the error was, what damage was caused, and what specific provisions of law were violated.

And when we’re dealing with lawyers on the other side that’s very different than you having to deal with an automated system or a customer service agent that just doesn’t have the power or authority to correct the error or perhaps that made error in the first place.

Also, these company lawyers, in my experience, recognize that unless the error is corrected and corrected promptly the damages would just keep on piling up in a lawsuit because the consumer could be denied another loan or another job or apartment.

So although the wheels of justice move slow as the expression goes. In the area of getting your background report or credit report corrected they move rather fast.

Now this is not the end of your case and we will continue to fight on your behalf to get you full compensation and to hold the company accountable. But you should see real progress relatively early on in a lawsuit involving inaccurate information on a background report or credit report.

Thank you and take care.

They deserve 10+ Stars because this law firm is professional, knowledgeable, and Top Notch attorneys that get the job done. They are caring, understanding and they get results for their client. I applied for a job position and unfortunately because something was reported falsely, it prevented me from starting my job, it was embarrassing and very upsetting because I was being accused of something I had not done and they were saying I was found guilty. That would be the company that did my background check. Then a miracle came about , I came upon the phone # for Francis Mailman Soumilas, P.C. and made the call, immediately I spoke with Nicole Dobson who was so nice and understanding and she listened and she said let me speak to one of the attorneys. The next day, I heard from the attorney, Geoffrey Baskerville who was extremely interested on taking on my case. He was professional, outgoing, very knowledgeable and most of all he cared! They started on my case and they got the job done and a settlement way above what I was thinking I would get. They are the best of the best!! 100% Guaranteed... You can trust that they will get the job done...
