Data breach class action claims for compensation

Your Lawyers, as leading privacy claims experts, represent thousands of people engaged in data breach class action claims, fighting for justice on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Since 2014, we have launched over 50 group and multi-party actions for thousands of clients, and this is on top of the singular claims that we represent people for. Anyone who has suffered as a result of losing control of their personal information can be entitled to claim data breach compensation, and we may be able to help you now.

Data breach class action claims – our specialism

Pursuing data breach class action claims is one of our core specialisms as a leading firm of privacy compensation experts. Class actions as a term is actually more common in the US, but it is often used here as well, especially in the media. It is the same thing that we more commonly term as a Group Action where we operate here in England and Wales, but they are one and the same thing really.

What they are is a mechanism whereby hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, or even millions of people can come together to claim as part of a singular action. This makes a lot more sense than pursuing a lot of claims individually in courts up and down the country, which is why large groups of people who do need to claim often have their cases formed into such actions. Many have taken place in this country and across the world, and these types of cases make up for a lot of the claims that we represent people for.

Dozens of live group actions

We are currently representing thousands of people engaged in data breach class action claims. They range from serious data leak events such as the 56 Dean Street Clinic leak of 2015, to the more recent exposure of a database affecting Virgin Media from 2020. Many of the events are cyberattack incidents, such as the 2018 British Airways hacks and the 2015 TalkTalk cyberattack.

We are engaged in over 50 group and multi-party actions in total that stem from privacy events, and we have been working in this niche and complex area of law since 2014. At around this time of year, we also see some of the anniversaries of some of the breaches (or their discoveries) cropping up as well.

This summer marks five years since the Equifax hack was discovered. Last month was two years on from the easyJet cyberattack that affected some 9 million people, and May 2018 and 2019 was around the time the PageUp and Chums data breach events were identified.

You may still be eligible to claim in these actions – make sure to contact the team for advice here now.
