Consumer law protections can help those facing financial issues

Finances are one of the biggest concerns for St. Louis residents and for those across Missouri. Having financial problems can impact every aspect of a person's life and cause issues for an extended period of time. When facing financial struggles, many consumers are unaware of where to turn for guidance and help. Overwhelmed by their increasing debt and with collectors harassing them at every turn, they might not know that there are laws in place to protect them.

Number of pedestrian accidents and personal injury sows concern

Pedestrians in St. Louis and throughout Missouri are in constant danger of being hit by a motor vehicle when they are out. It is not limited to when they cross the street as vehicles can go out of control, head onto the sidewalk and even crash into them when they are in front of their homes. Since pedestrians are unprotected and will bear the full brunt of a crash, there is a major chance of personal injury and death.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act covers disputed debts

Missourians who are in heavy debt and are having trouble covering even the minimum payments could feel a certain amount of fear as they consider their options. There are many ways to handle debts and get back on stronger financial ground. Before taking those steps, however, it is also important to get back into a better frame of mind to try and address those debts. One common hindrance to doing that is when debt collectors are exerting pressure to collect.
