This week is the second anniversary of the Ticketmaster data breach compensation that we launched in 2018 for victims of the cyberattack to take legal action.
We are also a month on from the second anniversary of the GDPR coming into force as well, which is a key piece of legislation that applies in the Ticketmaster action. As we are now two years on from the launch of our legal action, many claims are at an advanced stage, but there is still time to join the action. As we always do, we recommend that you launch your claim with our team as soon as you can.
Joining the Ticketmaster data breach compensation
You still have time to join the Ticketmaster data breach compensation action if you have not already done so. We always recommend that you start a legal case as soon as you can to avoid missing out on developments that take place as time goes on. You should also make sure that you join a case before any court deadlines expire and before the limitation to claim expires.
For data breach cases, some types of damages have a three-year limitation timeframe applied. As such, you should – at the very least – start your case in advance of the third anniversary. However, court deadlines can fall before the limitation periods, so it is important to start as soon as you can to avoid missing out.
We are representing clients for cases on a No Win, No Fee basis. As a victim of the data breach, all you need to do is contact the team now to start the case and join the action.
About the case for justice
A Ticketmaster data breach compensation claim is the pursuit of justice by way of damages claims for victims of the 2018 cyberattack. The GDPR, and the preceding Data Protection Act 1998, can mean that victims of a data breach are eligible to receive damages, and there are commonly two main types of damages which are:
- General Damages: this is for the distress you suffer as a result of the loss of control of your personal information. When personal data is exposed and/or misused, you can be entitled to damages for the distress this causes;
- Special Damages: this is for any applicable losses and expenses. This could be from money lost as a result of fraud or theft, or it may be losses like lost earnings from time off work.
Importantly, you do not have to have suffered any financial loss or expense to be able to pursue a case for damages. You can be entitled to claim for the distress alone, which in itself could be a case worth thousands of pounds.
Given the nature of the Ticketmaster data breach and how it happened, we are confident that we can succeed with the cases. To do so, we need to prove that the cyberattack was avoidable and that negligence is involved. If we can do this, and we believe that we can, that is when you can be entitled to receive compensation.
