Stolen data breach compensation claims – when can you claim?
You could be entitled to make a stolen data breach compensation claim if your personal information has been exposed due to theft. This can happen in a number of ways, which can include targeted cyberattacks where data is exposed by cybercriminals breaking into systems and servers. It can also happen when generally malicious software is being used to find vulnerable systems and servers in a non-targeted effort as well.
The other common scenario involves stolen devices, such as PCs, laptops, mobile phones, tablets, and even CCTV cameras. If cameras are not secure and are storing data on them, a stolen camera could expose data. Any storage device, whether digital or hard copy, can expose information. Encryption can help to prevent data loss, but information should not be at risk of theft in the first place.
When you claim, you can normally be entitled to recover damages for the distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information. If you have also incurred any expenses, or lost money, these could also be considered. However, you do not have to have suffered any actual financial loss to claim as you can pursue compensation for just the distress alone.
Data breach compensation amounts for the distress alone can be substantial. This can especially be the case when the information exposed is particularly personal and sensitive, which is something that we have a great deal of experience in helping people with.
No Win, No Fee legal representation
If we consider that we can succeed with a stolen data breach compensation claim that you bring to us, we may be able to represent you for a legal case on a No Win, No Fee basis.
For eligible clients, this means that we can write off our legal fees if the claim does not succeed, subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement. We work this way because we are true believers in access to justice, and we do not think it would be fair for people to have to pay privately for a case.
