Your Lawyers (t/a The Data Leak Lawyers) has launched a formal Virgin Media Group Action in support of the 900,000 victims affected by the 2020 data breach.
This latest group action is one of the over 45 group and multi-party data actions that the firm has launched, representing thousands of clients for legal cases on a No Win, No Fee basis. The firm launched its first action for privacy breaches back in 2014 and was appointed to the Steering Committee responsible for the overall conduct of the first GDPR Group Litigation Order (GLO) in England and Wales, the British Airways Group Action.
Now, Virgin Media has just weeks to agree to resolution terms, or an application for a GLO in this case is also set to be applied for.
Virgin Media Compensation Action launched
Your Lawyers has launched its Virgin Media Group Action for the 900,000 victims of the data breach that was revealed earlier this year. Those affected could be eligible to claim up to £5,000.00 based on early estimations.
What this means is that a formal pre-action letter has given Virgin Media weeks to agree to resolution terms and avoid court action. In the event that the telecommunications giant intends to defend cases, Your Lawyers intends to apply for a GLO without delay to make sure that victims can access the justice that they deserve.
Having been involved in multiple GLO matters in England and Wales, the firm’s experience in this area of law is significant. Data breach compensation claims have only been pursued by most other firms in the last couple of years, but Your Lawyers has been at the forefront of this niche area of law as pioneers for justice for over six years.
A GLO will normally result in the court establishing a final cut-off date for people to join the action, or victims face missing out on potentially thousands of pounds in compensation. Early estimations have put possible pay-outs at up to £5,000.00 in the action – an award that is not to be missed out on.
New surge in sign-ups
Following the media attention around the launch of our Virgin Media Group Action for the data breach event of 2020, an expected and significant surge in new sign-ups has occurred.
Given that a GLO will usually leads to a final deadline, and Virgin Media has just weeks to respond, now is the time to act if you have not already done so. If you have received confirmation that you are one of the 900,000 victims of the data breach, sign-up for a legal case now.
