It’s important to know your GDPR data breach rights, and as a pioneering data breach compensation law firm, our expert advice and representation can help.
I once read that, statistically, data breaches are more common than rain in the UK. Having lived here all my life, and travelled a fair few places around the world, that statement seems excessive. The weather, and how wet it is, is a common part of British life!
But it’s apparently true. So, with this in mind, let’s look at your GDPR data breach rights and how we can help you when it comes to making as claim for compensation.
GDPR data breach rights and compensation claims
As a law firm, our focus is on GDPR data breach rights in terms of victims being able to claim compensation. This is important, because organisations like the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) are there to punish and fine offenders, but their job isn’t normally about compensation. Although the ruling they make can help support a separate legal case, it is a separate case.
And that’s where we come in.
GDPR can allow victims whose information has been exposed or misused to pursue compensation. This compensation can include damages for any distress, suffering and loss of amenity caused. It can also allow for financial losses to be recovered as well.
The right to claim compensation is there, and it’s enshrined in law.
How do you claim data breach compensation?
GDPR data breach rights can allow you to can claim compensation by instructing expert data lawyers.
And that’s what we do.
You normally have to pursue a case in order to seek compensation by way of a claim. We represent victims on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means victims can claim safely with us. As big believers in access to justice, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
We launch the case for you and do all of the legwork in our efforts to recover damages for you. With many organisations still failing to properly prepare for data protection, and many employees still failing to protect the data they interact with, establishing negligence can be straightforward.
What do your GDPR data breach rights allow you to claim?
GDPR data breach rights can allow you to make a claim for compensation, and how much you can claim is then dependent on a number of things.
Generally speaking, the more you suffer, the more we be able to recover for you. Having been doing this for a number of years – a lot longer than some of the other so-called expert firms that have sprung up in the last year or so – we’ve already settled a number of cases. And we don’t push for cheap settlements and quick resolutions when our clients can be entitled to much, much more.
