Claim compensation for unauthorised access of medical records

Victims suffering from distress that arises from the unauthorised access of medical records can be entitled to claim medical data breach compensation now on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Medical data breach cases are some of the most significant that we represent people for as the impact on the victims can often be very severe. Of the thousands of people that we represent as a leading firm of data breach and consumer action lawyers, we truly understand the significant impact on victims when this kind of event happens.

The team here at Your Lawyers is here for you now – you can speak to our expert team for free, no-obligation advice here now.

The severity of medical data breach claims

Medical data breach compensation claims can be some of the most severe that we represent people for. When it comes to incidents involving the unauthorised access of medical records, such an invasion of privacy can cause real harm and distress to the victims.

This is why our work in representing people affected by medical data breaches of this nature is so important. We may not be able to “undo” the fact that you have lost control over your personal information, but we can use a claim for compensation to seek some form of justice for you. It can be well worth doing, as our average settlement is just over £6,000 for data claims in general, and medical data breach cases often attract higher awards than this owing to the nature of the information affected. This is directly linked to the impact and how badly people can suffer.

Castlefields Health Centre and the Heath Road Medical Centre data incident

One of the smaller group actions that we represent people for is the unauthorised access of medical records event that took place involving Castlefields Health Centre and the Heath Road Medical Centre.

Letters were sent out to some 45 patients who were advised that their medical records had been accessed without proper authority to do so. This involved an out-of-hours service, and we represent victims affected by this particular incident.

This incident has caused understandable distress to those affected, and we are now just over two years on from when this particular incident was identified. The incidents involving Castlefields Health Centre and the Heath Road Medical Centre are one of many of this nature, with this type of case being a common one in respect of medical data breach compensation claims.

Claiming compensation for the unauthorised access of medical records

Victims who have suffered any form of distress and/or loss as a result of the unauthorised access of medical records can be entitled to claim data breach compensation. The GDPR can specifically allow victims to receive damages for any distress caused by the loss of control of personal information.

Given that our medical information is some of the most personal and sensitive that there can be, suffering from considerable distress from an event like this can be quite common. Data breach compensation amounts and pay-outs can be substantial to reflect the severity of the impact to the victims also.
