Human error NHS data breach compensation claims

Human error NHS data breach events can lead to the misuse and the exposure of a significant amount of incredibly personal and sensitive medical information.

The impact that this can then have on the victims who lose control of their personal information and their right to privacy can be substantial. With many of the thousands of people that we represent for data breach cases, many are for medical breach events and many have a factor of human error involved. Some of the highest pay-outs that make up the over £1m in data breach damages we have already recovered for mostly individual clients involve healthcare data, so we know the extent of the impact on the victims.

This is why the expert team here at Your Lawyers – as Leading Data Leak Lawyers – are the right specialists to have on board for your case. We will always fight tooth and nail for your right to justice, and we can do so on a No Win, No Fee basis for eligible clients.

police data breach

Police domestic abuse data breaches

The police service holds some of the most sensitive information about the population, including the data of many perpetrators and victims of crimes. Police domestic abuse data is among the most private information there can be, due to the safety risks it could provoke if compromised. A data breach could potentially endanger victims and they could be located by their former abusers.

The police force, like any other data controller, is obliged to protect information in accordance with the GDPR, the primary data protection law in the UK. However, there have, unfortunately, been cases in which unacceptable breaches of privacy have occurred, affecting the information of victims of domestic abuse.

Most of us would expect the police to be fully aware of its responsibilities to maintain strong data security, but it seems data protection is still not a high enough priority or focus in some cases. Where mistakes are made, those responsible must be held accountable, and those affected should be fairly compensated for any harm caused. If you have fallen victim to a data breach at the hands of the police, you can contact us for free, no-obligation advice on your potential compensation claim.

Patient and employee data breaches

All data breaches can be capable of having a serious impact on victims, but the severity of a breach generally increases according to how much information is exposed, and the sensitivity of that information. Patient and employee data breaches, therefore, constitute some of the most harmful data security incidents that a victim can fall prey to.

Your Lawyers, as leading specialists in data breach law, have seen the damage that can be caused when personal data is compromised or exposed. Everyone should feel safe and secure in their hospitals or workplaces, but negligence of data protection principles can severely endanger people’s privacy.

In fact, all data controllers have a legal obligation to protect the personal information they process and hold. Where they fail to do so, they may be liable to pay damages to those affected. Making a data breach claim can allow you to recover the compensation you deserve, so contact our team for free, no-obligation advice if you think you may have a claim to make.
