Any organisation guilty of failing to manage data protection could be responsible for a breach of the GDPR if information has been subsequently misused or exposed.
If that happens, a victim whose information has been affected could be eligible to pursue a GDPR compensation claim on a No Win, No Fee basis. You can find out if you are eligible to start a case by contacting our team for free, no-obligation legal help here now.
Any organisation responsible for failing to manage data protection properly could result in information being misused or exposed. If that happens, there could be a breach of the GDPR. Anyone whose information has been affected by misuse or exposure could be eligible to pursue privacy compensation.
The core of being able to pursue a case is about establishing that there has been a breach of the GDPR and that this has caused some form of distress or loss. In most cases, victims who have lost control of their personal information claim distress that has been caused to them, which is an “injury to feelings” for any worry, anxiety, upset, and anger about what has happened. Claims can be pursued in respect of distress because the law recognises that people want to maintain control over who knows what about them. If we lose that control, it can be incredibly distressing.
Our average compensation claim settlement in mostly individual cases for distress alone is just over £6,000, which serves to show how significant such breaches can be. For eligible clients, we are able to pursue compensation claims on a No Win, No Fee basis as part of our commitment to access to justice. This way of working means that, if we are confident that we can succeed with a case, we can work on the principle that we can write off our legal fees if the claim does not succeed.
If you have been the victim of an incident where an organisation has failed to manage data protection matters properly, and this resulted in data exposure or loss, you could be eligible to pursue a GDPR compensation case.
All you need to do is contact our team here now for free, no-obligation legal advice and we can often tell you quickly if your case is one we can proceed with. If we are able to move forward with a claim, and you are happy to instruct us, you can do so in one simple telephone call on the very first conversation that you have with us. It can sometimes only take around half an hour or so to gather all the information that we need, and we can get your claim set up and get the ball rolling straight away without delay at all; no hassle no fuss.
When it comes to medical and NHS data breach claim matters, the distress that victims can suffer from when organisations have failed to manage data protection properly can be significant. It is not uncommon for us to recover over £10,000 in damages alone in medical and NHS data breach claim matters, because of the significant distress that victims can suffer.
This is because this kind of information is exactly the type that we want to maintain strict confidentiality over, and the law even recognises this by treating it as “special category” information. This means that such information can be afforded additional protection in accordance with the GDPR.
