On the second anniversary of the launch of our Ticketmaster data breach compensation action, we wanted to remind people that it’s not too late to start your No Win, No Fee case.
This data breach was one of the first major ones to hit the headlines in the wake of the GDPR coming into force just weeks before. When news of the breach was announced, we were immediately contacted by concerned victims and we agreed to take legal cases forward. In July 2018, just weeks after news of the breach came to light, we launched our formal action and sent our Letter of Claim to Ticketmaster.
Plenty has happened since we launched our legal action two years ago. If you have yet to join our action, you should do so as soon as you can.
Join the Ticketmaster data breach compensation action today
You’re still in time to join the Ticketmaster data breach compensation action that we are pursuing for victims. You can also still benefit from our No Win, No Fee representation.
We are in the process of pursuing out-of-court settlements for the victims that we represent. It’s always best to pursue settlements before court action, as court time should only be used as a last resort. In England and Wales, the rules that guide these types of cases strongly encourage parties to compromise without the need for trials and hearings. As such, we continue to work toward an amicable settlement for our clients without the need for litigation, which is the approach we always take for the cases and actions that we manage.
As a leading firm of data breach and consumer action specialists, we’re often in the news. You may recall seeing the big news about the British Airways data breach action in October 2019 when the judge gave the green light for a Group Litigation Order (GLO) to proceed. This was the first GDPR GLO in England and Wales, and we were appointed with a seat on the Steering Committee responsible for the overall conduct of the action. If we reach a point with the Ticketmaster data breach compensation action that’s the same as we did with the BA one, we may need to launch formal court action. If this happens, there will likely be deadlines to join the action which we will talk about more below.
Importantly, you are still in time to make a claim, but we do recommend that you launch your case as soon as you can to avoid missing approaching deadlines. You could be entitled to receive compensation for the distress you suffered by the loss of control of your personal information. You may also be able to receive damages for any losses and expenses as well.
Warning about deadlines
There are strict deadlines for launching and settling claims. These are usually based on the official Limitation Period, and there can also be more than one deadline that applies to data breach compensation claims.
For some types of compensation claims and damages that can be received as part of a data breach case, you only have three years from the date of knowledge of the breach. This is usually based on when you were notified that you were a victim, but this isn’t always the same for everyone. The point of raising this now is that we launched our legal action in July 2018, but these things take time. This is especially the case when we are representing thousands of victims that may form as just one of the over 45 actions we are involved with. The three-year period is now almost less than a year away, and it will come around quickly. You really should launch your case as soon as you can to avoid missing out.
There can also be court cut-off dates if we launch formal action with the court as well. You do not want to miss any court deadlines as that can mean it’s the end of the road for any case that you wish to pursue in the action.
With our No Win, No Fee representation available, what have you got to lose?
