Council data breach compensation cases are some of the most common that we deal with as a specialist leading law firm working in the field of privacy claims. This is often the case because they store and process such a wealth of information, and a lot of it can be incredibly personal and sensitive. From the usual personal contact details, to sensitive medical and domestic information for social care needs, and financial data for council tax reasons, there is a lot that could be misused and/or exposed.
We represent thousands of individuals claiming data breach compensation, and many of those involve a local authority breach, leak or hack.
Eligibility to claim compensation for a Welsh local authority data breach will often come down to: the nature of the information that has been affected; how much is involved; the impact on you; and how the breach came about. If the breach stems from some form of negligence, that is when you could be entitled to pursue a case with us this way on a No Win, No Fee basis. Negligence could arise from the misuse of your information, or leak or disclosure without consent, or even data being exposed in a cyberattack.
The best thing to do is to contact our team who will be more than happy to provide you with free, no-obligation legal advice about whether you are able to start a case with us. We are a national law firm based in England, which means that we are able to operate within the shared jurisdiction of England and Wales.

Data breach compensation awards for council cases, including those involving a Welsh local authority data breach, can be substantial. As outlined above, because a local authority will handle so much personal and sensitive information, it only takes one error or issue for somebody’s incredibly personal and sensitive data to be exposed or misused.
Councils will handle special category information, which is afforded additional protection and care in accordance with the GDPR. Data breach compensation amounts and awards can easily be in the thousands of pounds region and, generally speaking, the more you suffer, the more case could be worth.
Your claim will normally be for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of your personal information. If there are any losses and expenses to consider as well, we can also help with this.
