BA group action for compensation information

With the potential for deadlines for joining the pending BA group action for compensation arising from the 2018 data breach coming soon, here’s what you need to know.

If you were affected by one or both of the 2018 data breaches, you may qualify to make a claim for compensation. If you have received confirmation that you were affected, that should be enough for you to join our group. For more information about the breach, please see our information page here.

We have been representing claimants since news of the breaches hit the headlines last year, and our advice is to sign-up for a case as soon as you can. Here’s a quick guide for you.

What is the BA group action?

The pending BA group action will be a legal action for compensation on behalf of potentially thousands of people who were affected by last year’s breaches.

Normally, when there are many people who are entitled to make a claim for the same incident, they can join as part of a Group Litigation Order (GLO). We refer to these cases as group actions or multi-party actions, and in the U.S., they usually call them ‘class actions’ or ‘mass torts’.

People who join a GLO can then benefit from any settlements that take place as part of the court action. To be able to make a claim, you normally need to be a part of the GLO.

How much could I claim?

Each claim in the BA group action will likely be assessed on its own individual merits.

Data breach compensation amounts can depend on things like:

  1. The level of distress you’ve suffered as a victim of the breach(es);
  2. Any financial loses and expenses caused by the breach(es).

For low-level cases, damages can range from £1,500.00 to £3,000.00, but it can be more as it is case-dependent.

When do I need to join the formal BA group action?

When a formal BA group action goes live with the courts as part of a GLO, there will normally be a cut-off point for joining.

We can tell you from years of experience and being involved in dozens of group and multi-party actions that so many people miss the deadlines because they leave it too late. We still get enquires now for actions where the cut-off has passed, and we must sadly turn them away.

So, although we don’t yet know when the cut-off will be, you should sign-up for a claim as soon as you possibly can. We’re representing people on a No Win, No Fee basis, so what have you got to lose?
