Data breach compensation for private medical information exposure

When private medical information is exposed or misused, the impact on the victim can be substantial. This is why it is important to claim data breach compensation as a victim of this kind of event.

Whether it is a singular case where someone has leaked your clinical data, or perhaps where your medical records have been snooped on by someone, we may be able to help you. Or, if you are a part of a wider event that has affected many people, we can help as pioneers of data group and multi-party actions. We have launched over 50 of them to date, representing thousands of victims for cases.

Claim compensation for a private medical information data breach

You can be eligible to claim data breach compensation if your private medical information has been exposed or misused. There are plenty of ways in which this sort of data can be involved in a breach, and plenty of culprits can be responsible for causing a breach as well. It is not just GPs and hospitals, but insurers, employers, schools, councils, and many more organisations that we deal with may hold some kind of medical data about us. It could end up being compromised or misused from any sort of organisation that holds this kind of information.

Incidents that lead to this kind of information being impacted can include:

  • Medical data being disclosed without your consent.
  • Medical records being snooped on or viewed without any good reason to do so.
  • Postal and email leaks where information is sent to the wrong recipient(s).
  • Incorrect information entry.
  • Data being lost or erased.
  • Cyberattacks causing the deliberate exposure of your private medial data.

There are other circumstances in which you could be eligible to pursue a medical data breach compensation claim. The above are a few examples of where we may be able to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis.

What could you be entitled to claim?

Generally speaking, the more a person suffers from a data breach, the more their compensation claim could be worth. In the case of private medical information being exposed or misused, given that this is some of the most personal and sensitive data that there is, the impact can be substantial.

As such, data breach compensation pay-outs for these kinds of cases can be high.

The GDPR can entitle you to receive compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information. When it comes to private medical data, the distress can be significant as this is precisely the kind of data that we want to be kept secure and confidential. When our control over this information is lost, that is when you could be eligible to pursue a claim.

It is useful to know that you do not have to have lost any money to be able to pursue a claim. You can claim for just the distress alone.
