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.
