Police breach data protection breach compensation

We represent victims for police breach data protection breach compensation claims, and we can offer No Win, No Fee arrangements for cases that we can take forward.

Although we can be thankful for the hard work and bravery of many officers of the law, it’s important to remember that the police are not above the law. This includes officers, senior staff, and administration and support employees. Anyone employed within the police service is subject to the same rules as everyone else, and the Data Protection Act and the GDPR apply.

If you have been affected by a leak, breach or hack involving the police, you should speak to our team for free, no-obligation advice. We’re data compensation experts with a proven track record of settling claims, with thousands of people having come to us for our specialist advice and legal representation.

Police breach data protection breach compensation advice

If you need advice and representation for police breach data protection breach compensation, we can help.

Contrary to some worries, you can pursue a claim for compensation against the police where a breach of the law has taken place. Information held by the police can be some of the most personal and sensitive that there is, especially when it relates to certain crimes or incidents. Their role in protecting such information could not be more important, as is their role in protecting members of the public. As such, when a breach occurs, victims should know their rights.

No one should be afraid of taking on the police if they need to, and you have every right to do so for a legitimate breach. If we consider that you have a case, and we believe that we can succeed with it, we can offer No Win, No Fee representation.

How much can you claim?

The pay-outs for police breach data protection breach compensation cases can vary depending on several factors.

Generally speaking, data breach compensation amounts are dependent on factors such as:

  • The nature of the data at the centre of the breach;
  • Who the data has been misused by or exposed to;
  • How much data is involved;
  • Whether anything can be done to stem the flow of exposure or misuse;
  • How the breach has personally affected you.

The last one is important to note. Each person is different, and each person can be affected by a data breach in different ways. This is carefully considered, and as a firm of lawyers who have been pursuing data breach claims for far longer than many other firms, we’re used to working with victims for particularly sensitive breaches.

Recent information for previous settlements for Data Protection Act compensation claims involving the police can range them between £5,000.00 and £10,000.00. However, each case is different, and a claim could be worth more (or less) depending on the individual circumstances.

We’re often asked about valuations by the media when we’re approached for advice about events and data protection, and it’s not an exact science. We can give guidance based on prior settlements and actions, but it’s all very subjective.
