Anyone who has been affected by a hospital patient data breach could be entitled to claim GDPR compensation, and we may be able to represent victims on a No Win, No Fee basis.
It can be stressful enough having to undergo singular or ongoing hospital appointments whilst under the care of professionals for treating problems and ailments. We trust in our doctors and medical staff to look after us and have our best interests at heart, and this naturally extends to protecting our right to privacy. At an already stressful time, the last thing we want is to then find out that hospital patient data has been exposed in a leak, breach or hack. If this has happened, we can suffer distress from the loss of control of our personal information, which can be compounded by the fact that we are already going through a stressful time.
Any hospital patient data breach can be severe given the nature of the information that could be affected. Medical information is precisely the kind of data that we want to keep strictly private and confidential, which is why the law entitles us to control over it. The GDPR can also recognise that this can be “special category” information which can afford it additional protection.
If your information has been misused or exposed then you could be entitled to claim damages for distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information. You can speak to our team for free, no-obligation legal advice here now.
A lot of the cases that we take forward for privacy compensation cases involve medical data breaches given the severity of the impact on the victim. As we said above, the nature of this information is precisely the kind we want to keep confidential, so the impact can be huge.
This is why it is important for anybody who has been affected by a medical data breach to claim compensation, as is their right to do so in accordance with the law. We recognise how badly you could be affected by an incident of this nature, and we can fight for your right to some form of justice for what has happened.
Healthcare data breaches since 2020 have been quite a topic of concern given that there have been increased pressures due to the coronavirus pandemic, and concerns over increased incidents of cyberattacks and data breaches in general.
We take on a lot of cases, as we said above, for medical data breach claims given how frequently these events can occur. Not long ago it was reported that a Dorset hospital had reportedly suffered a data breach where some 5,000 patient images had been deleted, which goes to show how easy such breaches can happen.
We have to recognise that, as society becomes more digitised, the risks are increasing of our information being misused or exposed. The healthcare industry has an important duty to protect the information in its charge, and the government must do all it can to make sure that appropriate funding and resources are available to achieve this.
