Are You Eligible To Join The British Airways Data Breach Compensation Action?

You may be eligible to claim in the British Airways data breach compensation action if you made a booking, or changed a booking, between 10.58pm on 21 August 2018 and 9:45pm on 5 September 2018.

British Airways announced in October that customers who made a reward booking between 21st April 2018 and 28th July 2018 may also be affected.

You should have received an email from British Airways to confirm that you have been affected by the data breach, although British Airways has been heavily criticised for their handling of the breach so far, and we cannot be sure whether all customers have been advised. If you have received notification from British Airways, get in contact with us even if the above time period does not apply. You should be eligible to claim British Airways data breach compensation.

Some 380,000 people have been affected by the BA data breach. British Airways, as the largest airliner in the UK, has an important duty to protect the data of the customers they hold. The fact that hackers have been able to access incredibly personal and sensitive data for such a large volume of people is simply unacceptable.

Anyone from around the world who is affected by the British Airways data breach can join our action. The breach falls within UK jurisdiction, so claimants outside the UK should be eligible to join our group.

Will I Win A BA Compensation Claim?

This was a sustained attack which took place for more than two weeks.

In other actions where payment data is compromised, we often find that the payment information exposed is only partial information. In the British Airways data breach, full card numbers, expiry data information and security codes (CVV) on the reverse of cards have been compromised, together with the personal information of the customer.

Victims of the British Airways data breach are at an immediate risk of fraud.

Given the number of people affected, the nature of the BA data comprised and the fact that the data was exposed for a prolonged period of time, we’re offering No Win, No Fee representation for victims of the action. British Airways has already accepted that they will pay compensation to those who suffer a financial loss, so we’re confident we will win the action.

No Win, No Fee BA Compensation Now

We’re offering No Win, No Fee representation for our British Airways data breach compensation action now.

This means that we can waive our legal fees if the case does not win, although we’re confident that we will be able to win the action in any event.

We offer No Win, No Fee arrangements in data breach compensation actions because we understand that most people cannot afford to pay the legal fees if a case fails.

Our No Win, No Fee representation is simply designed to protect you.

Why Choose Us For BA Compensation Claims?

About Data Breach Compensation Law

Our lawyers have decades of experience in representing people for compensation claims. When it comes to the niche area of data protection law, we’ve been representing people for privacy breaches since 2014, with our first data action like this taken forward in 2015 (the 56 Dean Street incident).

This is a lot longer than most other law firms. Only in the last couple of years have other firms started to specifically take data cases forward, and we’ve seen a great deal of concerning marketing claims being made by some companies. This is why we prefer to let our experience speak for itself instead of using generic buzzwords and making misleading claims.

We’re pioneers in this area of law for the following simple reasons:

  • Our history dating back to 2014 for privacy breach compensation cases;
  • Our position on the Steering Committee for the first GDPR Group Litigation Order (GLO) in England and Wales, the British Airways data group action;
  • Our involvement in over 35 separate data breach actions;
  • Our regular coverage in mainstream media – including last week’s huge coverage of our estimated £4.5bn Virgin Media Data Breach Compensation Action;
  • The fact that thousands of people have come to us for our help and expertise.

We feel that the importance of raising this is increasing as more and more breaches take place and more firms start to tout for you to place your case with them. It’s totally up to you as to who you instruct to represent you for a case – that’s your right – but we wouldn’t be doing our job unless we make clear that this area of law remains in its infancy, and we don’t want people to be exploited by dodgy firms or fall victim to poor legal services.

Our experience speaks for itself and means you know that we’re a leading firm of data breach lawyers. To speak to our team today about making a Watford Community Housing data breach compensation claim, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
