Are You Eligible To Claim NHS Data Breach Compensation?
To be eligible to claim NHS data breach compensation with our expert lawyers, you need to match our criteria for taking your case forward.
The best way to find out is with specialist and tailored advice direct from our team. But as a general guide, we can give you information on how to know if you may be eligible for our No Win, No Fee representation.
If the following applies to you then you may be able to make a claim for NHS data breach compensation with us:
Your personal information has been breached, leaked, hacked or otherwise exposed by an NHS employee or NHS organisation. Organisations include:
- GP surgeries
- Medical centres or walk-in centres
- Dentists and sometimes Opticians
Ultimately, if the incident is linked to the NHS or involves NHS data, you may be able to claim NHS data breach compensation. Some NHS work is outsourced to third-party agencies, and the claim could be against the NHS or a private company. We'll get to the bottom of it for you as we investigate your case!
You're a resident in England or Wales and the breach took place in England or Wales (Scotland and Northern Ireland have separate legal jurisdictions, and we usually cannot assist with cases where those jurisdictions apply).
Your information that has been exposed (and who it has been exposed to) is bad enough to warrant a claim for data breach compensation. This is really something that we need to assess on a case-by-case basis to make a judgment as to whether we can assist you or not.
The data breach has resulted in you suffering distress and / or financial loss. You don't have to have suffered any financial losses to claim, but you do at least need to be distressed about the breach. Given that medical data is typically very personal and very sensitive, it's understandable to suffer distress when medical data has been exposed. This can allow you to claim NHS data breach compensation.
The data breach took place in the last six years. The reason for this is that the general limitation period to be able to make a claim is usually six years from the date of the breach, or it can sometimes be six years from the date of knowledge of a breach.
However, there can be other key deadlines to consider. A severe enough data breach can warrant the claim encompassing personal injury damages, and in this type of case, you may only have three years to start the case instead of six to ensure you can receive personal injury damages. And for a Human Rights Act case the limitation period is just a year.
In group action data cases, there can also be court deadlines for joining an action as well. If you miss a court deadline, you may not be able to benefit from a group legal action and may be unable to complete your case at all.
The best advice is to never chance it. Make sure you start your claim as soon as you can. You need our tailored advice to properly calculate the right deadlines for your case, so don't rely on general guidance, and make sure you seek proper advice from our team!
Generally speaking, if you match the above criteria, you may be eligible to claim NHS data breach compensation with us.
But never leave it to chance! Always speak to our team for advice and we can usually give you an answer right away.
