A foster care data breach is one of the most sensitive and significant types of cases that we represent clients for on a No Win, No Fee basis.
A lot of claims we take forward involve social services matters, and it’s the adoption agency and fostering matters that can often be the worst. Many victims are vulnerable children, and the families associated can suffer when a breach takes place as well.
As a leading firm of data breach compensation experts that has been specialising in this niche and complex area of law for a lot longer than most other firms, we can help you the right way.
A sensitive matter
We fully appreciate that any form of foster care data breach can be an incredibly sensitive matter.
We have considerable experience in representing clients for sensitive data breaches that involve confidential issues. This includes incidents where the breach is so severe that a safeguarding issue has arisen and has led to victims having to move their lives and start over from scratch (and not for the first time).
Adoption and foster matters simply cannot be at risk of a data breach at all. Although all organisations and employees have a duty to adhere to the law, when it comes to matters this sensitive, extra care and vigilance is required. More protocols and procedures must be in place, or the damage can be devastating.
Our lawyers and legal team are used to representing clients in sensitive situations like this. You can trust that we know how best to work with you and that we will do all that we can to support you.
Claiming compensation for a foster care data breach
A foster care data breach incident is far more than just a claim for compensation to be processed. We know you need help and support, and that’s what we try to do as well as representing you in your fight for some form of justice.
No amount of compensation may ever make up for what has happened, but data breach compensation amounts for cases like this can be significant. Victims can claim for the distress caused by the loss of control of personal information, and if there are losses and expenses to claim for as well, we can look to recover those in addition.
There’s a great deal to consider when we work with cases of this nature. Our lawyers and legal team have worked closely with some of the best barristers in the UK for decades and have close relationships with expert agencies to assist us with making sure that the best possible outcome for the claim is achieved. We do all the legwork and fight tooth and nail for a fair outcome for the victims that we represent, which in a case like this is so important.
If you or someone you know has been involved in a foster care data breach and you need free, no-obligation advice on a confidential basis, we can help.
We can normally tell you right away if we can represent you for a case on a No Win, No Fee basis. If we can, it’s totally up to you as to what you wish to do. We won’t push you; that’s not our style.
When it comes to this type of legal case, experience is everything. It’s important to know that we represent clients (including settled matters) for cases that involve foster care and adoption matters, and we have been involved in a large number of serious individual cases and actions over the last 5 years that we’ve been helping data breach victims claim compensation.
Our lawyers are involved in over 30 different group and multi-party actions, including sensitive cases like the 56 Dean Street (2015) leak and last year’s Charing Cross GIC leak. Data breach claims have only really prevalent over the last 5 years, which is how long we have been involved with them. Our experience as a law firm goes way back before then, having recovered millions of pounds in serious medical cases and large UK group actions for years.
