BREAKING NEWS: Your Lawyers – the Data Leak Lawyers – has been appointed by the High Court of Justice to the Steering Committee that will be leading the fight for justice in the BA group action court case.
This means that our expert consumer rights and data breach lawyers will be at the forefront of the huge, pioneering battle for compensation against British Airways.
Mr Justice Warby has given the green light for the Group Litigation Order (GLO) to proceed. Together with other Claimant firms, we have also been successful in forcing a U-turn on BA’s efforts to shorten the length of time people have to sign-up to claim. This is a landmark moment in UK legal history, and we’re delighted that we’ve been able to use our experience and expertise to get the right decision that’s best for those affected by the 2018 cyber-attacks.
Your Lawyers (t/a Data Leak Lawyers) appointed to Steering Committee
We’re delighted to have been appointed by the High Court of Justice to the Steering Committee that will guide the fight for justice in the huge BA group action court case.
Much like the Volkswagen emissions action that we were appointed to the Steering Committee for, the British Airways Group Action is also a landmark case. Our lawyers are fighting for justice in over 40 different group and multi-party actions in total, and this latest appointment is a testament to our hard work and history when it comes to championing consumer rights.
Deadline extended in BA group action court case; but act now!
We’ve succeeded in securing a much lengthier deadline period for victims to sign up and join the BA group action court case. BA’s lawyers had originally wanted just a 17-week window, which we feared could leave hundreds of thousands of people missing out on the chance to claim.
We recently aired our concerns with the media in order to raise the issue as well. You can read about our Daily Mail feature here.
The timeframe to secure your place in the action for compensation is now looking to be at least 15 months away, taking us to January 2021. This should be more than enough time for anyone affected by the attacks to sign-up to claim, but we strongly recommend that you act now.
There’s a lot more to it than just signing-up or registering your details. We need to build your case and make sure we have all the evidence well in advance of the deadline to claim. Plus, if there are any settlements prior to the deadline, we’re sure you’ll want to have an established claim that could be resolved much sooner than expected.
Will the BA group action win?
We’re confident that we’ll be able to succeed with the overall BA group action court case that will continue to develop over the next few months.
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has already issued an intention to fine the airline a record £183m for breaching GDPR. The law is on the victims’ side when it comes to both the happening of the breach, and the right to claim for data breach compensation.
We’re acting for victims on a No Win, No Fee basis because we’re confident that we’ll be able to win the action.
