56 Dean Street - Liability Accepted - Offers Being Negotiated
"We're pleased to confirm that liability has been formally accepted for the victims we are fighting for, and compensation offers have been made"
Given the nature of the breach, our Data Leak Lawyers have been confident right from the start that we would be able to successfully settle claims for those affected by the leak. Although this can be a complex area of law, meaning you need the help of specialist Data Leak Lawyers like us who have the right experience in helping people for such leaks, we always knew that we would succeed with our action.
We are acting for a number of victims of the leak and we continue to take cases on for those who have been affected.
We've said all along that our focus is the bigger picture as we fight for the rights of victims of data leaks to make sure that data controllers like the NHS take all necessary steps to prevent leaks and breaches. Right now we have the technology to prevent what happened at the 56 Dean Street Clinic from happening, but such technology was not used, and the leak happened as a result.
In our eyes, the member of staff who sent the email is a victim in this as well - this happened through systemic failures which were entirely preventable.

Starting Your Claim
Starting your claim is easy - and now that we have the admission of liability and offers on the table, money can be set aside for victims to claim from.
In law, there are always legal timeframes for making a claim, and some of those timeframes for these cases are on the first anniversary of when the incident occurred.
This means a deadline of September 2016.
It's always best to start a claim as soon as you can anyway, so please get in touch with us if you would like free and no obligation advice about making your claim as a victim.
