Affected by Virgin Media data breach? What you need to do

If you’re one of the 900,000 victims that has been affected by Virgin Media data breach, here’s what you need to do to secure your right to make a claim for compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis with us.

A compensation action has already been established for people to join. As a victim, you could be entitled to claim for the distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information. You may also be entitled to recover damages for any losses and expenses that you may incur too.

As a leading firm of consumer action and data breach compensation specialists, we’ve launched our action for justice. All you need to do is sign-up for a legal case.

Are you affected by the Virgin Media data breach?

If you are one of the victims affected by Virgin Media data breach, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis.

You should already have been notified if your information has been exposed in the 10-month breach period between April 2019 and February 2020. Most notifications have been issued by email and text and should have been sent within days of the breach being revealed, which is the law.

It may be that your name and contact information has been exposed. For over 1,000 people, contract data may also have been exposed which could have included some customers being linked to explicit websites. This was a serious breach of the GDPR, which means that victims  can be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

What is the compensation action?

The compensation action for those affected by Virgin Media data breach is to seek justice for what has happened.

It may be that the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) will issue a fine to Virgin Media as punishment for what has happened. If they do, it’s important to know that any money received from fines isn’t designed to be used for compensation at all. As such, for victims to be able to get some form of justice for what they’ve been through, a separate legal action is launched by specialist lawyers like us.

Victims who join the compensation action could be entitled to claim compensation for the distress that has been suffered as a result of the loss of control of personal information exposed in the breach. If money has been lost as a result of fraud or scams that are directly related to the breach event, this could also be considered.

We have previously spoken to the media about potential estimated compensation amounts. They could possibly reach up to £5,000.00 per person as part of an overall estimated £4.5bn package.
