Do people claim data breach compensation? We know that this is somewhat of a common question when people hear about the fact that they could be entitled to pursue a case for damages in this kind of setting. The short answer is: yes.
We have represented thousands of people over several years in respect of individual compensation claims and group action and multi-party data cases. This all comes down to the fact that the GDPR can allow people to recover compensation for any distress that they have suffered from that is caused by the loss of control of their personal information, and we will touch on this more below.
In today’s digital age, it can be quite common for people to pursue cases for data breaches, leaks and hacks. So, for those asking – do people claim data breach compensation? – it really is the case that many people are doing so nowadays.
Another common question as well as “do people claim data breach compensation” is: what can people claim for? People understand that if you suffer a personal injury then you will have suffered and that is what you could recover damages for, but how do you suffer from a data breach?
In many ways, you are still claiming a sort of injury, but it is more of an “injury to feelings”. The law recognises that we are entitled to control who knows what about us for very good reasons, and when this control is taken away from us, we can feel lots of adverse feelings. We can feel stressed about knowing that we no longer have control over our information, and we can feel worried about what malicious individuals may do with our information. We may also feel sensitive about the fact that people now know things about us that we did not want them to know about.
You may also be able to recover compensation for any losses and expenses, if they are applicable, which could be a factor in fraud cases. But, for most people, you are claiming compensation for any distress that has been suffered alone.
One of the major data breach group actions that we are representing people for is the Virgin Media Data Leak that was identified at the start of 2020. We are representing thousands of people engaged in our compensation action on a No Win, No Fee basis, and this is one example where thousands of people are pursuing cases for the loss of control of their personal information.
