Looking to sue ADT? Small claims court is an option, and you may have others…
At FairShake we’ve helped thousands of people with claims against ADT and other big companies that ripped them off get millions of dollars in settlement offers… [continued below]
Have you tried getting a refund from ADT and gotten nowhere? Do you feel like you have nowhere to turn?
You’re not alone. From what we hear, a lot of people out there have tried all the ADT customer service options and still feel like they haven’t been heard.
There are lots of ways to bring an ADT complaint, but none with the same power and leverage as bringing a claim through the legal system.
So where should you start if you’re looking to sue ADT? You might think there would be tons of class action lawsuits against ADT. But the truth is more complicated.
Little-read clauses in their contracts allow companies like ADT to force legal claims out of most US courts and into the private system of consumer arbitration.
But this doesn’t mean your ADT contract can take away your right to sue entirely.
Here’s what you can do…Make a Legal Claim
The first option for suing ADT is through consumer arbitration. Arbitration is an opportunity to take legal action through an officially-designated, independent dispute process that’s not a court and won’t require showing up in person. This can be a better option for a lot of regular people.
How do you get started? That’s what FairShake is here for. We can help you start the legal process against ADT in under 10 minutes, and we’ll only charge if you win compensation. FairShake’s customers have been offered millions of dollars in settlements. You can learn more or start a claim now.Start FairShake Claim
The second way to sue ADT, if you want to avoid the arbitration system, is to use Small Claims Court. Because Small Claims Court processes differ from place to place, FairShake can’t help out here. It may require showing up in person and filling out some forms.
If you’re ready to take your ADT claim to Small Claims Court , read on below:
You have to make sure your claim qualifies. Small claims court is for specific types of situations.
If your claim doesn’t fall within the limits of your state’s small claims court, you’ll have to arbitrate your claim instead.
In order to sue ATD you have to ask nicely. Give them the opportunity to fix the problem voluntarily. This is a simple step but it is a required step by every small claims court no matter where you live.
The letter doesn’t have to be anything complicated. It can be something as simple as a few sentences explaining who you are, giving your contact information and your account information with the company, and then telling them what went wrong and how you want them to fix it.
When you’re done writing, you need to mail a hard copy of the letter, preferably as certified mail or some other service that allows you to confirm delivery, to their legal address. ADT is legally based in Delaware and receives mail at this address :
THE CORPORATION TRUST COMPANY
CORPORATION TRUST CENTER 1209 ORANGE ST
WILMINGTON, DE 19801
If you would like examples of demand letters or more information about how to write them, you can find an excellent guide here.
If you are very lucky they will respond at this point and try to give you a settlement but in most cases you have to continue onward with the following steps.
