Address is leaked to an ex-partner: claiming compensation

If your address is leaked to an ex-partner, you could be entitled to claim data breach compensation now on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Your Lawyers, as leading Data Leak Lawyers, has secured over £1m in compensation for mostly individual data clients, and this includes for victims where this very scenario has happened. We may not be able to undo any damage that has been caused, but the GDPR can entitle you to claim, and you could be owed thousands of pounds in data breach damages.

The potentially severe impact when an address is leaked to an ex-partner

We have successfully pursued thousands of pounds in compensation for victims whose address is leaked to an ex-partner. As with the case we will touch on, one of the key reasons for confidentiality is to prevent perpetrators of domestic abuse from being able to locate the victims who have moved away. Ultimately, it is an important safeguarding issue to protect the victim from being harmed again, and from being stalked and harassed as they might have been before.

In one such case, a school allowed the perpetrator to see the address for our client when they attended the school for the purposes of discussing their child’s education. The school was aware of the circumstances surrounding the ex-partner and the reasons as to why our client’s address could not be disclosed to them, but the data breach happened, nevertheless. Unfortunately, the school attempted to defend the case, but we were successful in bringing the matter to a conclusion where our client received the compensation they deserved.

When we achieve success for these types of cases, it is always a matter of mixed emotions. On the one hand, we cannot turn back the clock and undo what has been done, and the victims may already have been harmed or been threatened as a result of a data breach. We cannot take the harm away, but what we can do is make sure that the victim receives some form of justice for what they have had to go through. This kind of case is a clear example of the mismanagement of sensitive information that should never have taken place, leaving vulnerable people exposed when their right to privacy is breached.

Schools in particular are privy to a great deal of sensitive information, and they have a clear responsibility to make sure that they handle sensitive matters of shared care between parents where there is a history of domestic issues. Schools and their employees are supposed to be the champions of safeguarding matters, so a data leak like this is shocking given the huge impact that it can have.

The important thing is that victims can be entitled to some form of legal justice if an address is leaked to an ex-partner, and they can be eligible to claim compensation now.

No Win, No Fee legal representation

Indeed, in a case where an address is leaked to an ex-partner, or in any case, it is important that victims have a realistic avenue to justice. It can be costly to hire a lawyer for private matters, and many victims in this kind of scenario may already know about the costs if they have had to instruct solicitors for anything in relation to custody and separation matters.

However, for a data breach claim for compensation, we can work for you now on a No Win, No Fee basis for eligible clients. This means that, subject to the agreed terms and conditions in place, we can write off our legal fees if the case does not succeed.

We are firm believers in access to justice which is why we have worked this way for years. This can protect you as our client, especially when the case is sensitive like this.
