Human error NHS data breach compensation claims

Human error NHS data breach events can lead to the misuse and the exposure of a significant amount of incredibly personal and sensitive medical information.

The impact that this can then have on the victims who lose control of their personal information and their right to privacy can be substantial. With many of the thousands of people that we represent for data breach cases, many are for medical breach events and many have a factor of human error involved. Some of the highest pay-outs that make up the over £1m in data breach damages we have already recovered for mostly individual clients involve healthcare data, so we know the extent of the impact on the victims.

This is why the expert team here at Your Lawyers – as Leading Data Leak Lawyers – are the right specialists to have on board for your case. We will always fight tooth and nail for your right to justice, and we can do so on a No Win, No Fee basis for eligible clients.

Claim compensation for a human error NHS data breach

You can be eligible to receive compensation if you are the victim of a human error NHS data breach event. The negligence of an employee can fall onto the organisation that employs them, which is known as vicarious liability. In many medical data breach compensation claims, this will be an NHS Trust that is then responsible for issuing compensation to victims.

Anyone affected by this kind of data breach can be eligible to receive compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of personal information. When it comes to medical information, this distress can be substantial because this is precisely the sort of data that we want to remain confidential. This is why the duties that NHS staff have in respect of confidentiality are so strict, so any breach of this can cause significant harm to the victims.

Whether your medical records have been accessed without authority, or if your healthcare data has been sent to someone else in error, you may have a case to make. And we may be able to help you now.

Dorset NHS data breaches

According to a recent news story from Bournemouth Echo, a Freedom of Information (FOI) request has revealed that there have been thousands of NHS data breaches affecting the Dorset Healthcare University NHS Foundation Trust (DHC) in recent years. The figures indicated that they were the fourth highest in terms of the number of data breaches, and a lot of these are understood to have arisen from human error events.

This goes to show the extent of human error NHS data breaches and how they continue to plague the medical sector in particular. A lot more can – and should – be done to be able to prevent simple errors from leading to data being leaked and exposed.
