You do not need to have any diagnosable or recognised injury to make a claim as a victim of a data leak - you can claim for the very happening of the incident itself.
There are many things we can look at when it comes to recovering damages for victims of a data leak. Whilst each case is judged on its own individual merits, as experienced lawyers in this area, we can tell you exactly what you can include in a claim for compensation.
You could be eligible to claim for the very fact that you have been a victim of a data breach. If the information that has been leaked has potential consequences on your life then this can be included as well.
Common factors we can consider are:
Compensation for data leaks, data hacks, and confidentiality breaches can range from a few thousand pounds to tens or even hundreds of thousands of pounds.
A Famous Example: The News International Phone Hacking Scandal!
Reports indicated that the following individuals received the below amounts as victims of the News International phone hacking scandal:
There are many reported cases where victims have seen damages in the region of £20,000 for things like unauthorised viewing of medical records.
Firstly, if the data that has been leaked about you is sensitive or intended to be private, then this can obviously have an effect on you, and proving the claim here can be quite simple.
However, there are other things you may need to do to prove that you are entitled to claim, and as experts in the field of data leaks, data hacks, and breaches of confidentiality, we can tell you what you need to get for us.
When it comes to any psychological affects we can arrange for private medical consultations and we can ask our experts to provide us with reports. The reports can then be used to prove your claim and to support any losses and expenses on your part such as lost earnings.
The amounts for lost earnings and other losses or expenses can be provided simply by using evidence like wage slips, receipts, invoices, etc.
You shouldn't have to suffer in silence and you shouldn't have to pay to start a claim.
That's why we offer a No Win, No Fee guarantee for people who want to make a claim as a victim of a data leak, data breach, data hack, or in circumstances of a breach of confidentiality.
