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.
About the Equifax data breach compensation action
The Equifax data breach compensation action stems from the cyberattack that took place in 2017. Due to the failure to patch a known security flaw, hackers were able to get access to a large trove of personal details of people using the service. Given that this was an entirely avoidable data breach, we agreed to take claims for data breach compensation forward right away, offering No Win, No Fee legal representation to eligible clients.
Victims could be eligible to claim compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information. The event precedes the GDPR that came into force a year later, so we are working on the previous laws of breaching the Data Protection Act. Generally speaking, the more a person has suffered, the more they could be eligible to claim.
Are you still in time to claim?
The Equifax data breach compensation claims have been going on for a few years now. Some deadlines have already passed, and others will be passing very soon. There may also be court-imposed cut-off dates for joining any formal action, so you should not delay if you have yet to start your case.
We may still be able to help you and you may still be eligible to pursue a case. You can speak to our team for free, no-obligation advice to find out if you are still in time to claim now.
We always recommend that you do not delay when it comes to starting a legal case for compensation. Several of the group actions we have previously worked on have had deadlines that passed, and we still get new enquiries from people wanting to join them. We have to turn them away, and it is a real shame as some have lost out on thousands or tens of thousands of pounds in lost damages.
