Second anniversary of the discovery of the Virgin Media data breach

We are around the second anniversary mark of the discovery of the Virgin Media data breach that was first revealed in the media in March 2020.

Since news broke that some 900,000 people – mainly customers – had been subjected to their personal information being exposed, we quickly launched legal action for justice. Two years on, we are now representing thousands of claimants – all on a No Win, No Fee basis – as part of our Virgin Media Group Action for compensation.

You still have time to sign up for a legal case, but do not delay any further – we are already at an advanced stage for many of the clients that we represent, and there can be cut-off dates imposed by courts for joining an action. You risk missing out unless you get on it now and start your case, and since we are working on a No Win, No Fee basis, what have you got to lose?

The second anniversary of the discovery of the Virgin Media data leak

It seems quite hard to believe that we are already at the secondary anniversary of the discovery of the Virgin Media data leak. This was also around the time when the world changed and much of the global society were facing lockdowns following the coronavirus pandemic. It was poor timing for many people who were already quite worried and anxious about how the pandemic would affect them, so adding on the news of a preventable data leak was not helpful.

The actual period that the information was exposed for was between April 2019 and February 2020. News then spread fast about the discovery of the Virgin Media information exposure, and our firm featured in the press quite a lot about it. We quickly launched our legal fight for justice, and committed to taking claims forward on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Still time to join the legal fight for justice

As we are marking two years on since the discovery of the Virgin Media data breach, it is important to recognise that there is still time to claim, but that time is running out.

There are limitation periods to claim, and for some types of damages, you only have three years to either settle a case or initiate court proceedings. At any time, a court may also impose a final deadline for joining a Group Litigation Order (GLO) as well, so time really is running out. For years we have received enquiries from people who missed the deadlines for closed actions, and we have sadly had to turn many people away. Some of those people could have been eligible to receive circa £25,000 in damages, which is not a sum most people could afford to lose!

Do not miss out – we are working for thousands of clients right now that are engaged in the Virgin Media Group Action on a No Win, No Fee basis. It is quick and easy to start your claim by completing a few simple forms on the dedicated website here.
