When the latest leak or hack takes places and people learn about their legal right to justice, some people may ask: why claim data breach compensation at all?
Let us give you some key reason as to why you should, as well as outlining the No Win, No Fee and the hassle-free approach that we take.
You may be surprised when it comes to things like data breach compensation amounts, and the risks that victims can be at when even a small leak happens. As a leading firm of data breach compensation experts, let’s put you in the know.
When can you make a claim for cyberattack compensation? How can you hold an organisation to account that has been breached? How can we help you on a No Win, No Fee basis?
These are common questions when it comes to cyberattack compensation cases. Many may think that the only way you could claim is to sue those responsible for the attack – i.e. the hackers. This isn’t really a feasible option, but you can be eligible to claim compensation against the organisation that has been attacked. They have an important duty to protect themselves and your information, so if they have fallen short, you could be eligible for a case.
Data protection is the law. The GDPR puts a duty on organisations to take reasonable steps to protect the information that they store and process. If they fail to uphold this duty, they can be negligent.

Data breach compensation pay-outs for legal cases like this can account for any financial losses incurred, but they can also account for the distress you suffer as well. It can be incredibly worrying for your information to be in the hands of criminals, and the law can entitle you to receive compensation for the distress you suffer from the loss of control of your private information.
This means that, even if you lost nothing or had your money returned, you could still be eligible for a claim.
