Serious Sandicliffe car dealership cyberattack

data breach cyber attack

In February 2020 a serious data breach occurred – the Sandicliffe car dealership cyberattack. If you have been affected by this breach, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim today.

It has not been confirmed exactly how many people are affected by the Sandicliffe car dealership cyberattack. However, the data breach is understood to have involved names, dates of birth, bank account numbers, sort codes, National Insurance numbers, passport scans, salary levels, and medical histories.

This data may not have been exposed for everyone affected, and it may be dependent on who they are and their role in the company, if they are an employee, as well as how much data was on record of each individual. However, in the wrong hands, this kind of information could end up being dangerous for those affected.

The Mercedes Emissions Action for compensation

Mercedes diesel compensation claims

The Mercedes Emissions Action for compensation is extremely important. It is designed to hold Mercedes accountable if it is established that they have been cheating emissions testing.

Right now, parent company Daimler deny that they have done anything wrong. However, Mercedes began a ‘voluntary service action’ in 2017, recalling thousands of cars for software updates relating to engine management systems and emissions. So far, around 3 million diesel vehicles are thought to have been involved.

The Group Action Lawyers are experts in bringing together Group Action Claims, where a large number of affected victims, sometimes millions, come together to bring a joint legal case forward where similar issues arise. In this case, Daimler/Mercedes is the defendant, and we want to help fight for justice for owners for it if transpires that they have been breaking the law.

tesla autopilot investigation

Stagecoach self-drive buses are to be tested in depots, marking a potential shift toward self-driving technology on UK roads.

Currently, self-drive vehicles are not yet fully legal for road-use, but the government plans to have them on pubic roads as soon as possible. We have the likes of Tesla testing their self-drive technology right now, despite there being a number of accidents (and fatalities) so far that are linked to self-drive technology.

We remain incredibly concerned about these hastening developments.
