A care home data breach compensation claim can be a serious matter that can result in the misuse and/or exposure of particularly personal and sensitive information.

Such organisations will need to store and process details that can be very personal, and the need to protect this information is incredibly important. Anyone who has been impacted by a breach of this nature could be entitled to claim compensation now on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Claiming compensation for a care home data breach

The victim of a care home data breach could be entitled to claim compensation. The GDPR can entitle the victim whose personal information has been misused and/or exposed to recover damages for the distress that has been caused.

A person who is affected by a data breach can claim themselves, or if you are looking for advice and representation on behalf of a family member who may not be able to bring the case themselves then we can help you. We can assess the case on a free and no-obligation basis for you, and if we consider that there is a breach, we may be able to pursue your case and represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Important and sensitive documents

The reason why a care home data breach could have such a significant impact on the victims is because of the nature of the information they store and process. Medical data is often seen as some of the most personal and sensitive that there can be about us, and care homes will often store and process such information. They will need it as part of any care plans and packages for looking after the residents, particularly those who are vulnerable and have been suffering from long-term conditions. Given that people in care homes are generally elderly, they are often subject to a lot more medical needs and requirements, which means that more medical information may be involved.

Generally speaking, a claim for compensation for any distress that is caused by the loss of control of personal information can account for the impact on the victim. We usually find the impact is greater when the nature of the information is particularly sensitive, such as medical data. This is why care homes have an important duty to protect the sensitive information in their charge, and employees working there must also be a part of the process to prevent data breaches.
