If your data has been shared without your consent…
If your data has been shared without your consent, you could be eligible to pursue a claim for data breach compensation. You may also be eligible to initiate a case on a No Win, No Fee basis.
A number of the group action compensation cases that we are representing people for are for data breach and privacy matters. These kinds of events keep happening, and they can lead to thousands of people suffering when their personal information is misused or exposed. When this has happened, victims can be entitled to claim compensation, and incidents involving many people can be grouped together to form a group or class action. This is usually the best way to pursue these types of cases given that each claim commonly involves the same Defendant and the same issues that caused their breach. We can make sure to look at the individual impact on victims when it comes to settling claims.
If we believe that an incident of your information being shared without permission has arisen from negligence, we may be able to offer No Win, No Fee Legal representation. This means that we can write off our legal fees if the case does not succeed, subject to the agreed terms and conditions in place. We can offer this for eligible clients if we believe that the prospects of succeeding with the case are good enough.
A recent example: The Deerbrook Surgery data breach

In this incident, it appears that the Deerbrook Surgery shared personal data with third parties without the permission of a number of people. According to the Deerbrook Surgery, the information involved does not include clinical records, but does include names, gender details and birth dates. They have acknowledged the seriousness of this error, and have confirmed that steps are being taken to prevent it from happening again.
