If you’ve yet to start your Equifax cyber attack compensation claim, the first thing you need to know is that the clock is ticking!

We’re almost two years on from the discovery of the data breach, and you only have a limited amount of time to start a legal case. We’re already representing a large group of victims who are claiming with us on a No Win, No Fee basis, but it’s not too late to start a case if you haven’t done so already.

The Data Leak Lawyers are pioneers when it comes to data breach compensation for group actions and multi-party litigation. We’re fighting for justice in over 25 different class cases, as well as countless individual claims as well. For some key information about the Equifax action, read on.

Will the Equifax cyber attack compensation action win?

We’re confident that the Equifax cyber attack compensation claims we’re pursuing will win, and that’s why we’re offering our services on a No Win, No Fee basis.

We only ever offer No Win, No Fee representation if we’re confident that there’s a case to answer.

The incident happened because a known security vulnerability wasn’t patched by Equifax, and their systems failed to identify the ongoing vulnerability as well. In our view, this incident was clearly preventable, which means that the prospects of our action succeeding are high.

This month, it was reported that Equifax has already spent some £1bn dealing with the fallout of the incident so far. That shows just how serious this was, and shows how they’re now paying a huge price for a monumental mistake.

How much can you claim?

We’re not at the stage where we can value the cases yet, and each case will be assessed on its own merits.

However, some recent research we conducted at the start of this year showed that the average pay out in a group / multi-party case on our books is £7,000.00. As expert lawyers with years of experience in maximising compensation pay-outs and fighting for justice in complex litigations, we will always aim for the highest possible amount for our clients.

It’s not too late to join the Equifax cyber attack compensation action we’ve been running since 2017, but if you’re serious about claiming, make sure you start your case as soon as you can.

The longer you leave it, the more likely it is that you may miss a key deadline. Missing deadlines can result in you losing out on the chance of claiming thousands of pounds in data breach damages. We don’t want anyone who is entitled to justice to ever lose their chance!
