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.
Claiming in a data breach group action – made easy
We make the process of claiming in a data breach group action as easy as we can for our clients. As specialists in group and multi-party actions, and with many of them being privacy matters, our experience is extensive.
Right now, we represent thousands of people claiming in over 50 privacy actions, with our first privacy action dating back to 2014. This is a testament to how long we have been working in this niche and complex area of law, and it means that we have systems, processes and the legal minds available to be able to achieve the justice that our clients need.
Real experience in the legal world is absolutely essential to be able to provide the best representation possible. This is what we can offer.
Do not miss the deadlines to claim
To be able to benefit from a settlement, you normally need to be claiming in a data breach group action before any court-imposed cut-off date expires, if the legal proceedings have moved down this route. This can be a common thing to happen, where a Group Litigation Order (GLO) is established and you need to join the action before the deadline expires.
There are also limitation dates to pursue claims as well. You normally only have a set amount of time to be able to settle a case or issue court proceedings before the claim becomes statute barred, which is essentially where you have run out of time to claim.
In recent weeks, we have seen a few anniversaries of some of the data breaches that we represent people for taking place. Each anniversary is a reminder that there is even less time to pursue your case, and we do need to get started well in advance of the deadline for you to avoid missing out. Leaving it until the last few weeks can mean that we are unable to help you due to the risk of not being able to prepare your case in time.
Some of the recent anniversaries include:
1. Just over a year on since the Grosvenor Casino cyberattack that affected member data in February 2021.
2. Two years on from several that took place in and around March 2020, including the 118 118 unauthorised access event; the Robert Dyas malware issue; the Watford Community Housing email data leak; and the discovery of the Virgin Media data leak.
3. Earlier than that, the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) data breaches, where they were caught up in cyberattacks, were identified in early 2019.
