We previously settled a claim for a client of ours who had been subject to a confidential adoption information breach in the sum of £15,000.
This substantial award reflected the significance of the information in question and the impact that our client suffered. As you can imagine, this kind of information is precisely the sort that we want to maintain strict confidentiality over. For it to be exposed through negligence warrants a claim for compensation.
settlement is just over £6,000 pounds in
As Leading Data Leak Lawyers representing thousands of clients engaged in compensation cases in the UK, we knew that we were able to help our client in this matter to achieve the settlement that they deserved.
Our team previously recovered £15,000 in damages in respect of a case involving confidential adoption information being exposed.
It goes without saying that such data is highly confidential and highly sensitive, and it must be treated with the respect that it deserves to make sure that identities and data are protected at all times. Any failure to do so could have a significant impact on the data subject in question, which is exactly what happened in this particular case. That is why we were able to recover £15,000 in damages alone in settlement for what happened in this particularly serious privacy matter.
As is usually the case, we are unable to go into the finer details of the claim for confidentiality reasons, but it is obvious to see how serious this matter was. We knew right from the beginning that our client’s case was one we believed that we could succeed with, which is why we were able to offer to represent our client on a No Win, No Fee basis.
Confidential adoption information is some of the most personal and sensitive data that there can be about anyone. Ultimately, the significance of data breaches that cause the leak or exposure of such information can have a damaging and devastating impact on the victims. That is precisely why the GDPR can allow victims of such incidents to recover data breach compensation for any impact that has been caused.
Our average compensation settlement is just over £6,000 in damages alone but, in this case, we recovered almost three times that. That goes to show the significance of the impact that can be caused and how this can have such significant and adverse consequences for the persons affected.
At Your Lawyers, as Leading Privacy Claims Experts when it comes to particularly sensitive matters involving data, such as confidential adoption information, we are here to make sure that justice is served.
We will do all we can for our clients to make sure that we can recover the best compensation possible, which is part of our commitment to making sure that we work the best that we can for our clients.
