You can be entitled to make a claim for compensation as a victim of a council data leak, and we can represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis for a case.
Council data protection compensation cases are one of the more common types of individual cases that we take forward. They can cover a range of local authority departments, and this can include schools and social services.
The impact of a council data incident can be substantial given the nature of the information they hold. In fact, data breach compensation amounts in these kinds of cases can be high when we see particularly personal and sensitive data misused or exposed. It’s important for victims to know their rights!
There are many ways in which a council data leak can take place. As they store and process the data for tens of thousands of people, one leak could expose the information for a large group of people.
Examples can include:
It can be so easy for this kind of leak to take place, and the damage that can be caused can be substantial – and irreversible.
The dangers and the impact on the victims of a council data leak can be substantial. Councils and local authorities hold a great deal of data about people, and some of it can be incredibly personal and sensitive.
It could include:
A social services data leak, as one example, can be serious and these are cases we deal with quite a lot; many of which we have successfully settled. It only takes one file to be leaked and it could contain confidential adoption information that could cause serious harm and distress to the victims.
If you have been the victim of a council data leak, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation with us on a No Win, No Fee basis.
