Pursue compensation for someone looking at medical records

You could be eligible to pursue privacy compensation for a data breach that arises from someone looking at medical records without authority or reason to do so.

One of the most common reasons for a breach like this taking place is the simple act of snooping. In many cases, the person snooping on the medical records knows the victim or has some personal and ulterior motive for engaging in such behaviour.

The authorities can prosecute people for engaging in this kind of activity. This can amount to a breach of the GDPR, and perpetrators can face being sacked, having to pay fines and court costs, and can even end up with a criminal record for breaking important data laws.

We know that victims of this kind of data breach where someone looking at medical records has caused you to lose control over your sensitive information can suffer significantly. This is why the law can entitle you to pursue data breach compensation, and why we can offer No Win, No Fee legal representation now.

Victims of this kind of breach could be eligible to receive thousands of pounds in data breach compensation damages. This is because the impact of this kind of breach is often severe given that medical information is typically the precise kind of information that we want to remain private and confidential. It can be seen as special category data, and if the person who causes the breach knows us, this can be even worse for us.

How does a data breach compensation case like this work?

When you pursue data breach compensation for someone looking at medical records, the legal case is usually directed against the employer of the person who was engaged in the snooping. If we can show in your case that the organisation was vicariously liable for the event, the claim can be directed to the organisation itself.

Determining if we can apply the law this way can be something that we must assess on a case-by-case basis. Grounds for a case could come down to a lack of monitoring in respect of unauthorised access, or a lack of restricted access protocols. It could come down to training and procedures, and it could also come down to an organisational failure to quickly identify and prevent recurrent breaches.
