How much is the average compensation pay-out for a data breach compensation case? We know that this is a common question that people ask, so let us give you a little bit of insight and advice in respect of this.
We can only talk about averages and estimates based on the information that we have. If you were affected by the Virgin Media data breach incident that was revealed in 2020, you can find out if you are still eligible to pursue a case and join the action here now.
It is a common question that people ask when they are looking to pursue a privacy case: how much is the average compensation pay-out? We appreciate that the answer to such a question could allow people to better understand whether they want to spend time pursuing a case or not, although we will do all the legwork for you. Plus, on top of that, when we answer the question below, you may be surprised at how much you could be eligible to receive.
So, how much is the average compensation pay-out for a data breach compensation case? Whilst we cannot speak for other firms, we can talk about our own averages and statistics as guidance. As of the end of 2022, our average settlement is still at just over £6,000 in damages alone per claimant. This figure is mostly for individual clients and does not include our legal costs which are pursued separately from the other side in respect of the fees that we are entitled to recover. This amount of £6,000 is the average amount across the broad spectrum of cases, from the very minor to the significant.
Whilst your claim could be worth more or less than this, and will all depend on the individual circumstances, the above figure may give you some guidance in respect of what you could potentially be entitled to recover.
How much is the average compensation pay-out in the Virgin Media group action?
As things stand, the group legal case that we are pursuing has yet to settle, so we cannot give an average that applies to this case specifically. When it comes to what kind of estimates we may potentially be able to use, it can be hard to tell. We did previously advise the media using averages and statistics that we believed that we may be able to recover as much as £5,000 per claim in some cases.
Again, any actual final amounts would be based on the individual circumstances, as well as any negotiations that we engage in with Virgin Media, so we cannot be certain at this stage.
We are several years on from the initiation of our group action for compensation for those who are affected by the Virgin Media data breach incident. We represent thousands of clients who are engaged in our group action for justice on a No Win, No Fee basis, and we are working this way because we are committed in our fight for their right to justice.
We believe that we can establish that Virgin Media has breached the GDPR as a result of what happened, meaning they are now liable to compensate the victims affected. Anyone affected could be eligible to recover compensation for any distress that has been caused by the loss of control of their personal information, as well as for any additional incidental losses and expenses, if these are applicable.
