You could be entitled to make a GDPR breach compensation claim if you have lost control of your personal information as a result of negligence where the blame is with someone else. Whether your data has been misused, exposed, leaked or otherwise stored or processed in a way that is not compliant with the GDPR, that is when you may have a case. If the incident could – and should – have been avoided, we can allege that the organisation in question has been negligent in respect of the duty of care that they have for your information. If we can prove this, that is when you could be eligible to recover compensation.

When you make a claim, you will normally be recovering damages for any distress that you have suffered from that is caused by the loss of control of your personal information. This could amount to thousands of pounds, and our average settlement for damages alone is just over £6,000.

It is important to understand that information can be continually at risk of misuse and exposure. One previous study I remember seeing suggested that over 70% of businesses did not have a proper plan in place for dealing with cyberattacks. This suggests that much more still needs to be done to protect our right to privacy.

No Win, No Fee legal representation

If we believe that you have a suitable GDPR breach compensation claim that we can succeed with, we may be able to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis. This amazing way of working means that we can act for you on the basis that we can write off our legal fees if your claim does not win. All you need to do is comply with the reasonable terms and conditions in place, and we can work this way for you to protect you in the event of a lost claim.

This means that we do lose money on cases that do not succeed, but we take a considered, risk-assessed approach when pursuing a claim. We also appreciate that most people would not want to claim or be able to afford to claim if they had to pay for a losing case. Really, this is the best way that we can work for people.

Example: Virgin Media data protection breach

There can be many ways in which a GDPR breach can take place, and the Virgin Media data protection breach is an example of an easily avoidable incident.

In this case, a database was left unsecured online for a period of 10 months due to a configuration error. Not only should this not have happened in the first place, but it should have also been identified much quicker rather than the realisation of the breach coming down to a notification from a third-party security researcher.

This example serves to show that simple errors can cause massive data breaches, as some 900,000 people were affected by the Virgin Media data breach.
