Virgin Media data breach compensation action: how to sign-up

We’ve made the process for victims to sign-up for the Virgin Media data breach compensation action nice and easy, so here’s a handy guide for what you need to do.

With around 900,000 victims in the UK, and with the data for over a thousand of them reported to be potentially linked to explicit content, this is a significant breach. Data had been left exposed for 10 months, and there has been at least one access event by an unknown third-party. We can’t know for certain what has happened to the exposed information, but the risk that it could be used for malicious purposes is very real.

Here’s how we can help you.

Sign-up up to the Virgin Media data breach compensation action

If you’ve received confirmation that your information has been exposed in the cybersecurity incident, you can sign-up now to join the Virgin Media data breach compensation action here.

All you need to do is complete the simple form and you can instruct us to represent you for a case immediately on a No Win, No Fee basis.

It’s as simple as that.

We’re representing a growing number of clients for formal cases, and we’ve contacted Virgin Media about the action we’ve launched. We’re not just registering people’s information to keep them informed about potential action; we’re taking action now.

What is it you’re claiming for?

Signing-up to join the Virgin Media data breach compensation action means that you’re seeking compensation as a victim of the cybersecurity exposure that took place between April 2019 and February 2020.

You could be eligible to receive potentially thousands of pounds in compensation for the distress that has been caused by the loss of control of your personal information. The law – which in this case is the GDPR – can entitle a victim to be awarded damages for distress, and that’s what we’re primarily seeking.

The law can also entitle victims to claim reasonable losses and expenses as well. For example, if anyone has fallen victim to a scam or fraud event that’s directly linked to the breach, this could be included. We saw this in the TalkTalk hack that we’re also involved with, where scammers used data exposed in that hack to contact victims and pose as TalkTalk, convincing victims to hand over cash or access to accounts to them.

With the revelations that some of the Virgin Media data breach victims may have had details exposed that links them to explicit websites, this is a real cause for concern.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

We’ve launched our Virgin Media data breach compensation action, so all you need to do is sign-up for a case.

People do need to be careful, though. There are increasing numbers of firms and claims management companies touting for data breach cases, and some of them have little to no real experience in this complex and niche area of law. We’ve seen some concerning marketing claims from firms as well, and it can be hard to know where to turn to.

That’s why we’ve made things simple.

Our process for signing-up for a legal case is based on the infrastructure we’ve had in place for a long time. It’s all set up and ready for you, and with more than 35 data group and multi-party actions our firm is involved with, our experience really does speak for itself.

We’re also on the Steering Committee for the first GDPR Group Litigation Order (GLO) case in England and Wales, the British Airways Group Action. This is important because it means that you can be 100% assured that we’re a leading law firm when it comes to consumer data actions.
