Public sector data breach claims for compensation can be one of the more common types of incidents that we represent people for on a No Win, No Fee basis. Any organisation – including public sector ones – has the same important duty to protect the information in their charge. Ultimately, the GDPR applies to all of us, and there is no excuse in respect of public sector versus private sector organisations.
Public sector data breach claims for compensation can typically be quite substantial given that such organisations will often store and process a significant wealth of very personal and sensitive information. One easy example is that of the public healthcare services that are storing and processing very sensitive medical information. Typically, such data is exactly the kind of information that we want to maintain strict confidentiality over, so any breach involving healthcare data can be catastrophic.
Another easy example is that of councils and local authorities who will be storing and processing information for a significant number of people. As well as personal contact data, this may also include payment card information for council tax purposes, as well as potentially sensitive medical and domestic data for social services matters.
Anyone affected by a data breach could be eligible to recover compensation, and we may be able to represent you for a legal case now on a No Win, No Fee basis. The best place to start to find out if we can help you is to contact our team for free, no-obligation legal advice here now.
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) recently reported that it had issued an enforcement notice on the London borough of Lewisham Council. According to the information published by the ICO, the matter relates to the council’s reported failure to respond to a significant number of overdue Freedom of Information Act requests.
The ICO investigation quoted that what was revealed was the “true extent of its poor performance” in respect of information requests. In one of the worst cases, it was reported that there was an unanswered information request that had been initiated over two years ago.
The ICO has said that it became clear that the council had no proper planning in place to address the issues at hand.
You could be eligible to claim council data breach compensation, or pursue damages in respect of any other public sector data breach claims with us, on a No Win, No Fee basis. If you are eligible for this kind of representation, it simply means that we can write off our legal fees if the claim does not succeed, and all you need to do is comply with the terms and conditions in place.
