Claiming compensation – GDPR data breach notifications

Receiving GDPR data breach notifications can be a bit of a common thing these days. I have received many, and you may have as well. You could be eligible to claim compensation as a victim of a data breach, and we may be able to help you.

Your Lawyers – The Data Leak Lawyers – is a leading, specialist firm of data breach and consumer action lawyers. We have been representing claimants for privacy cases since way back in 2014, which is a great deal longer than many of the other firms now touting for clients in this niche and complex area of law.

It pays to be careful who you instruct, as we know of other firms who have under settled cases quickly and cheaply, which can leave victims out of pocket and unable to achieve true justice. Our average data breach compensation pay-out for damages alone is in the £6,000 region, and we will always fight for the maximum pay-out for you.

What to do about GDPR data breach notifications

Receiving GDPR data breach notifications can be daunting. There can be an immediate fear of what may happen next, and a real worry in terms of whether you could be targeted by fraudsters and criminals – especially when the data breach has arisen from a cyberattack.

Although it is much easier said than done, the first thing to do is to not panic. Follow any advice given, such as changing passwords and keeping an eye on accounts, and be as vigilant as you can. Be wary of any unexpected calls, texts, emails, and post, as this could be fraudsters trying to trick you into handing over information to them or falling for a scam. Keep a record of anything that seems unusual, and keep a record of the data breach and the information you have been provided also.

Your legal right to compensation

The law can entitle a victim of a data breach to be eligible to claim data breach compensation. You could be eligible to receive damages for any distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information, and you may also be able to recover amounts for any losses and expenses as well. Importantly, you can just claim for the distress alone if there are no losses and expenses applicable.

GDPR data breach notifications could be a sign that you are eligible to claim. Whilst we will need to assess the case, which we are happy to do for you on an entirely no-obligation basis, the short of it is this: if you have lost control of your personal data due to it being exposed or misused, you could be entitled to claim.

If we are confident that there is a case to answer, you could be eligible to benefit from our legal representation on an entirely No Win, No Fee basis. So, by pursuing a claim with us, what have you got to lose?
