You could be eligible to claim GDPR compensation for a police data protection breach, and we may be able to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis.
The law can entitle any victim whose information has been misused or exposed to recover damages for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of personal information. If any actual financial losses and expenses have been incurred, these can also be considered, but they are not essential to pursue a case.
It goes without saying that the police and employees working for the service will store and process a significant wealth of incredibly personal and sensitive information. Some data if misused or exposed could even put people at risk of harm, so it is vital that information is protected appropriately to prevent breaches from occurring.
It is generally accepted that police data protection is a matter that is incredibly robust in respect of policies, practices and procedures. Despite this, incidents do occur, and some instances are more surprising than others, as we will outline below.
Recent news coverage publicised details of the Swindon Police burglary incident that reportedly resulted in computer devices, as well as camera equipment and protective vests, being stolen. It is understood that, following the burglary, Wiltshire Police declared the matter a “critical incident”, with the theft reportedly taking place in mid-May.
It is incredibly worrying to see that a police station of all places has suffered from a burglary. In addition, it cannot be ignored that there could be particularly personal and sensitive information stored on the devices and cameras that were taken. As such, this is an incredibly serious matter that requires a thorough investigation to make sure that something of this nature does not ever happen again. That being said, the fact that this has happened in the first place is really very concerning.
When it comes to GDPR breach compensation claims, any victim whose information has been misused or exposed could be eligible to recover damages, primarily for distress. When it comes to particularly personal and sensitive information, the distress suffered can be significant, which can be reflected in any pay-out that is awarded. Generally speaking, the more you suffer, the more your claim could be worth.
Our average compensation settlement, which is primarily based on individual clients claiming distress, is just over £6,000 in damages alone. Given that we work on a No Win, No Fee basis for eligible clients, it is absolutely clear that it is well worth your time pursuing a GDPR breach compensation case. You could receive thousands of pounds and we can write off our legal fees if the case does not succeed, subject to the agreed terms and conditions in place.
