If you’ve yet to speak to the team for legal advice about the recent Charing Cross gender clinic data breach, we’re here and ready to assist you.
We were contacted for help after some 2,000 people were the subject of an email leak that revealed their personal information. Two emails relating to an art competition were sent to around 900 people in each batch using the “CC” function. This should never have been allowed to happen.
This isn’t the first breach of its kind, with our firm prominent in representing people affected by the similar 56 Dean Street Clinic leak. We’ve taken claims for compensation forward on a No Win, No Fee basis as we consider that there’s a successful case to answer for the GIC leak.
What can you do as a victim of the Charing Cross gender clinic data breach?
If you were affected by the Charing Cross gender clinic data breach, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation with us.
GDPR allows victims of data leaks like this to be able to claim damages for the distress caused by the loss of control of personal information. When it comes to sensitive medical information like we have in this case, data breach compensation amounts can be substantial.
We’re able to take cases forward for victims on a No Win, No Fee basis. We can do this because we believe that we’ll be able to succeed with claims, and our action for justice has been launched.
How does a claim work?
When you make a claim for data breach compensation in a case like this, the foundations of the action is about the failures of the Trust and the clinic management.
Mass emails should never be sent in such a way. Specialist software should always be used for mass emails, and such software is widely available. Make no mistake about it, the Charing Cross gender clinic data breach was completely avoidable. That’s why we’re confident enough to take cases forward on a No Win, No Fee basis.
We thought that the 56 Dean Street action was the lesson that should have been learnt to avoid this kind of thing ever happening again. The fact that it has happened again is incredibly worrying.
What you need to do
If you were a victim of the Charing Cross gender clinic data breach, starting a claim for compensation is simple.
You can speak to our team for free, no-obligation advice, and we can normally tell you right away if we can take your case forward. If you received the email and your information was exposed in it, we should be able to help you claim for any distress that has been caused.
If we can help you, once we have confirmed you have a case, you can get started right away.
