Data breach stress and fatigue: a modern problem

Data breach stress and fatigue is a real problem in today’s modern age where we seem to be constantly being hit by data breaches, leaks and hacks.

The stress element can be difficult as it is making us all a lot more cautious about our online activities and who we might do business with. Whilst being cautious is never a bad thing, the issue is stressing over whether we are constantly in danger or not.

On the fatigue side of things, it is getting quite tedious to continually be hit by data breaches. I myself have been affected by a fair few now, and working in this industry means I see the full extent of the new ones that arise. It is easy to see yet another data breach and say to yourself: “oh, here we go again”.

There are things that you can do when a privacy breach occurs in order to ease any data breach stress and fatigue, and that is really the point of what we will be talking about today. There is an avenue for justice, and we can help you.

What can be done about data breach stress and fatigue?

We may not be able to do a great deal about the general data breach stress and fatigue that comes with there being so many incidents and events happening, or with getting sick and tired of it all. But what we can do is help whenever you have fallen victim to a data breach, as there is a legal avenue that you can explore to pursue some form of justice for what has happened to you.

Now, we cannot turn back the clock and reverse the exposure of information in some cases. But what we can do is use the full weight of the law to pursue data breach compensation damages for you.

The GDPR can allow a person to claim compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information. You may not know this, but you do not actually have to have suffered any sort of financial loss to be able to pursue a data claim. If you did lose money or had to pay anything out, this can be considered as part of a legal case, but it is not essential. The distress that you suffer from can be enough to pursue a claim, and that is what we commonly represent people for.

Key information about data breach compensation claims

If your right to privacy has been breached, perhaps because your private information has been misused or exposed, this can be distressing. You can be eligible to claim compensation for this distress, and claims could be worth thousands or even tens of thousands of pounds.

Data breach compensation amounts are usually based on the extent and severity of any suffering and loss that you endure. Generally speaking, the more you suffer the more your claim could be worth. As of 2021, we have recovered over £1m in data breach damages for our clients, mostly in individual compensation cases. The average amount claimed is just over £6,000 per claimant.

We represent thousands of people for individual data breach claims and in over 50 group and multi-party data actions. These include events like the British Airways cyberattack, and the Virgin Media data leak of 2020.

For qualifying cases, we are proud to be able to offer No Win, No Fee legal representation.

As a law firm, we have been helping people with privacy breaches since 2014. This is a great deal longer than most other firms now investigating data cases, and we have been at the forefront of ground-breaking and pioneering data breach actions. As a leading firm of data breach compensation experts, we can help you.
