Category: Data Breach Compensation
The Equifax data breach compensation action is one of the dozens of privacy cases that our Group Action Lawyers are fighting for justice in on behalf of victims.
Eligible claimants could be entitled to receive compensation for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of their personal information. Privacy compensation pay-outs can amount to thousands of pounds, and this is a niche area of law that we have a great deal of experience working in.
This data breach did take place almost five years ago. Some time-frames have already passed, and you will need to speak to our team as soon as possible to see if you are still in time to pursue a case.
Did you know that, as of right now in May 2022, there is still time to join the BA cyberattack group action that we are representing people for here in the UK?
You may be aware that there were some previous settlements that took place, but this did not involve our group. We continue to represent thousands of people affected by the 2018 cyberattacks, and there is still time to sign up for a No Win, No Fee claim for compensation now. All you need to do is head over to the BA Group Action website here now and get started.
We will see final deadlines for the claims that we are taking on expire, and this may happen soon. As long as you have not already settled a case and you have confirmation that you were affected, we may still be able to help you now.
Claiming in a data breach group action is important to be able to achieve some form of justice for what you have had to go through.
Claiming with the right firm and making sure to get your case launched in time is absolutely essential. This approach should give you the best chance of being able to succeed with a claim, and we will outline why this is the case below.
We are now two years on since the news broke about the Virgin Media data protection breach that affected some 900,000 victims, most of whom were customers.
We represent thousands of people affected by the data leak on a No Win, No Fee basis who are engaged in a Group Action for justice. We are at quite an advanced stage for many of the claimants given the length of time that has passed since news of the leak broke in the press, but you are still in time to start your claim if you have yet to join the action. However, time is running out and we urge anyone who has yet to start their legal case for compensation to do so without delay.
Employees can be entitled to pursue a workplace data breach compensation claim if an incident arises through the course of their employment.
As our name The Group Action Lawyers confirms, we specialise and focus on incidents that affect many people where their cases can be brought together. They can then be pursued as a group or multi-party action, and if there is a need to go to court then the legal cases can be joined into a Group Litigation Order (GLO). This is the method we use in England and Wales which is similar to the US term known as Class Actions.
We represent thousands of people in dozens of group and multi-party cases. Some of these have stemmed from a workplace data breach, and we can offer No Win, No Fee legal representation for eligible clients.
Accessing medical records without any sound reason to do so, and/or without authority to do so, can constitute a breach of vital data protection laws. Where this happens on a large scale, many people may be eligible to join their claims to form a group or multi-party action.
Data breach group actions is a particular area of law that we have a great deal of experience in, and we represent thousands of clients who are currently engaged in dozens of them with us. For eligible clients, we work on a No Win, No Fee basis, and we are pursuing actions right now where the breach stemmed from medical records being inappropriately accessed.
Our medical records contain some of the most personal and sensitive information about us that there can be. It is so important that they are protected from misuse and exposure, and when this happens we know that victims can suffer from considerable distress. The law can allow victims to claim data breach compensation for such distress, and we can represent victims for legal cases.
The idea of cyberattacks targeting medical devices is not so much a theory nowadays, but more of a real cause for concern that needs to be addressed.
As specialist Group Action Lawyers, we are used to seeing the harm caused to real people when things go wrong on a large scale. Whilst we are always here to help, prevention is always better than having to deal with the aftermath. As such, hacks and how they apply to an increasingly digitised world is something that we all need to be wary of; especially when it comes to the healthcare sector.
When your data has been shared without your consent, the impact on you could be substantial in terms of distress and/or losses and expenses.
You could be eligible to claim compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information. The GDPR can entitle you to seek and recover damages when this has happened, and we may be able to represent you for a legal case.
We are here to help. Please contact the team here now for assistance and advice.
It has been reported that tens of thousands of files that were exposed in the recent Stor-A-File cyberattack are now on the dark web and could be exploited by criminals.
We recently reported on the Lister Fertility Clinic data breach, which is one of the organisations affected by the cyberattack that involved services that they outsourced to Stor-A-File. The clinic has written to some 1,700 patients to inform them that their personal and sensitive medical details could be affected by the data breach. This latest development will no doubt come as a further blow now we know that information has been exposed on the dark web.
