Help if your medical records have been leaked

We understand the distress that can be caused when medical records have been leaked, as this is a common type of legal case that we take forward.

In fact, one of the many cases we recently settled was for this exact situation. Although no one wants to have their right to privacy leaked, we’re happy that we were able to secure yet another settlement for a happy client.

If this has happened to you, we may be able to represent you for a medical data breach compensation claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Claim if your medical records have been leaked

If your medical records have been leaked through no fault of your own, you should be entitled to make a claim for compensation with us on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Whether it’s a GP, hospital, local council, social services or even your employer, you can be eligible for compensation. Any organisation that’s responsible for storing and processing your private and sensitive medical information must do so in accordance with important data protection laws. If they leak your medical data, you have the right to seek justice. If an employee of an organisation is to blame, you can still claim against their employer who can be held vicariously liable for the employee’s negligence.

There are plenty of ways that this can happen that can lead to a victim being entitled to compensation. Examples include:

  • Medical records being sent to the wrong patient;
  • Information leaked by email;
  • Medical data accidentally published online;
  • Medical records disclosed intentionally to someone else with your explicit consent and authorisation from you.

You can even claim when staff have snooped on your medical records. One of the dozens of data breach actions we’re involved with involves the recent Greater Manchester mass snooping case, and we’re helping several clients claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.

How much can you claim?

If your medical records have been leaked, we appreciate that the damage can be severe.

When you make a claim, you can be entitled to compensation for the distress caused by the loss of control of your personal and private information. When it comes to a matter as confidential and as sensitive as medical information, the damage can be significant.

Because of this, data breach compensation amounts in cases like this can be high, and you can read more about how we value cases on our specialist advice page here.
