Cheshire West and Chester Council data leak

Media reports have confirmed that there has been a Cheshire West and Chester Council data leak, and it appears to be yet another in a long line of email breaches of its kind.

At Your Lawyers, as The Data Leak Lawyers, we are used to helping people claim compensation for incidents like this as leading privacy claims experts. It does not come as a surprise to us when we see a repeat of a style of incident, despite the fact that data laws are more stringent these days, and organisations should learn from the errors of others. Despite this, in our experience, these same kinds of breaches just keep on happening time and time again.

This may be part of the reason as to why we represent thousands of people for claims, and have already recovered over £1m in damages for mostly individual clients to date.

Serious council data breaches: claim compensation

For victims of serious council data breaches, it can be important to claim compensation to achieve some form of justice for what you have had to go through.

The GDPR can entitle you to claim compensation for any distress that is caused by the loss of control of your personal information, and you could be awarded thousands of pounds in damages. Your Lawyers, as leading Data Leak Lawyers, has a current average settlement award of just over £6,000 in damages alone for mostly individual clients. This shows that the law can ensure that victims are fairly compensated, and that our significant experience in this area of law can lead to high pay-outs.

We know some other firms that have only more recently started looking into data cases are settling quickly and cheaply, which may not allow for full justice for the victims. Our experience, having worked in this area of law for almost a decade, speaks for itself. Never get duped into accepting anything less than you deserve.
