We have been contacted by victims of the LOQBOX data breach since Saturday, and we immediately offered No Win, No Fee agreements for the several victims that got in touch.
LOQBOX has been hacked and customers are being informed about the potential exposure of personal information. As accessible lawyers, we were open over the weekend from 9am to 5pm to help victims who were receiving breach notification emails, and we have taken compensation claims forward.
If you’ve been informed that you were a victim of the LOQBOX hack, we could represent you for a claim for compensation. As a leading firm of specialist data breach lawyers that are proudly representing people in over 30 different group and multi-party actions, with thousands of people coming to us for our expertise, we can help you.
LOQBOX data breach compensation claims
We have launched our LOQBOX data breach compensation action having accepted new claims over the weekend with our No Win, No Fee representation.
It’s understood that the cyberattack took place on 20th February 2020, but LOQBOX has only just been able to identify potential victims.
Information that may have been exposed in the cyber hack includes:
- Email and postal addresses;
- Dates of birth;
- Telephone numbers;
- Payment card data, which may include digits of the 16-digit card number and the expiration date.
Compensation action launched
We started accepting No Win, No Fee compensation claims for victims of the LOQBOX data breach on Saturday 29th February 2020 when we were contacted by victims for help.
Since the weekend, we have taken several new cases forward and we have launched our action for justice. This kind of case will be a group action or multi-party action, which is an area of law we particularly specialise in as lawyers fighting for justice in over 30 different data actions. Our firm was appointed by order of the High Court of Justice to the Steering Committee leading the BA Group Action; the first GDPR Group Litigation Order (GLO) in England and Wales.
We’re not just registering people’s information or gathering details to provisionally take cases forward; we are actively accepting legal cases for victims.
Our focus during the initial period of the investigation will be to answer key questions that include:
- How LOQBOX was hacked, and whether more could (and should) have been done to have prevented the cyberattack;
- Whether the steps taken by LOQBOX to secure themselves after the breach could have been taken prior to the hack;
- The number of people affected and specific information for data exposed.
Join our compensation action now
If you have received confirmation that you have been affected by the LOQBOX data breach, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation with us now.
We offer No Win, No Fee representation and, as always, our initial advice is available on a free and no-obligation basis.
All you need to do is complete the form below to begin the process for advice or starting a case. When an organisation like LOQBOX is hacked, victims can be eligible to claim compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of personal information, as well as for any losses and expenses incurred. However, a recent court ruling can entitle victims to compensation even where no distress or loss has been suffered, so victims can get in touch for help either way.
