Data protection breaches and compensation claims

Despite the introduction of the GDPR in 2018, many data controllers still neglect their duties, and personal data continues to be exposed. It is important to hold companies accountable for data protection breaches and compensation claims can help to ensure that the responsible parties suffer repercussions for their actions.

Moreover, victims of data protection breaches deserve to be fairly compensated for any harm they have suffered, as it can be incredibly worrying and stressful to have your data exposed to potential misuse. Your Lawyers – The Data Leak Lawyers – as leading, specialists in data breach claims, use our expertise to ensure our clients can receive the most compensation possible.

How does the law allow me to claim?

The GDPR was introduced in the UK in 2018 to refresh existing data protection legislation. Under the GDPR, all third-party organisations that hold or process personal data are required to implement sufficient measures to protect this information. This includes organisational or procedural methods, such as limiting access to personal data to a few employees, as well as technological methods, which can involve cybersecurity measures such as antivirus software and file encryption.

The GDPR is there to protect the rights of consumers so that, if you do fall victim to a data protection breach, you have a right to claim compensation for the leak of personal data.

Data protection breaches and compensation pay-outs

Data protection breaches and compensation claims can be quite complex, but we can evaluate each case carefully to ensure our clients receive the highest possible compensation. In a claim, victims can be entitled to General Damages to cover the distress they have suffered as a consequence of a data breach, as well as Special Damages to account for any losses or expenses that have been provoked by the exposure of private information.

In terms of distress claims, you could be eligible to claim for the full range of emotional effects, whether it be a temporary period of stress or a long-term psychological injury.

Financial losses can also be recovered for data protection breaches, and compensation amounts and pay-outs can typically reflect the amount lost as a result of different types of data misuse. The kinds of data misuse can include phishing emails, scam calls, identity theft, and bank account fraud.
