Watford Community Housing data breach: still time to claim

We are now over two years on from the Watford Community Housing data breach that occurred due to an email leak in March 2020. If you have yet to claim, you are still in time, but we are at an advanced stage for cases.

We are still able to offer No Win, No Fee legal representation to eligible clients, as the prospects of success remain firm in respect of being able to resolve cases. Your Lawyers, as leading data compensation experts, will always fight for the maximum compensation you could be owed, which is vital to point out at the moment. We know of other firms that are settling claims for nowhere near the true value of their cases, and this practice has been prevalent when it comes to data claims.

We will talk more below about what to look out for when you start your claim for compensation to avoid under settling your claim.

About the Watford Community Housing data leak

The Watford Community Housing data breach happened in March 2020 when an email was sent to some 3,454 tenants. The email had a spreadsheet attached to it that contained very personal and sensitive information for tenants, including:

  • Names;
  • Home addresses;
  • Mobile numbers;
  • Email addresses;
  • Special category data such as details of ethnicity, religion, gender and sexual orientation.

It goes without saying that this is a very sensitive data breach indeed. Special category information is specifically protected in the scope of the GDPR, and this includes things like ethnicity, religion, gender and sexual orientation.

We represent a group of people claiming data breach compensation as a victim of this leak. We know how badly they have suffered, and we continue to do all we can to secure as much compensation as we can for them.

Maximising your data breach compensation and pay-outs

When it comes to maximising compensation and pay-outs for a case such as the Watford Community Housing data leak, it takes real expertise and experience.

We have been fighting for the rights of privacy victims since 2014, which is a great deal longer than a lot of other firms out there. We have recovered over £1m in data breach damages so far for mainly individual clients, representing thousands of clients in both singular and group cases. We have launched over 50 data group and multi-party actions so far, which is a real testament to our experience in this niche and complex area of law.

As of 2022, our average settlement for a data breach case is over £6,000. This reflects how severe these cases can be, and how much people can be entitled to receive. Whilst different cases are valued on their own merits, we must warn about some firms out there settling quickly and cheaply. We have heard of firms settling for a few hundred pounds when the case could be worth thousands. We have estimated that we could be recovering double, and sometimes triple, the amounts other firms have quickly settled for in some cases.

The key point here is that it is important to instruct experts like us to avoid under settling your claim. The risks are real, and you do not want to lose thousands of pounds in damages because the solicitor you instructed was not capable of fighting for your rights for more.
