Will there be a formal Virgin Media data breach class action and, if so, how will it work for victims claiming compensation here in the UK?
In the UK, a class action (also known as a Group or Multi-Party action) is where thousands of people can claim together. We’ve been involved in many, with some for just a few hundred people and others involving tens of thousands of Claimants.

If you’ve yet to start your Virgin Media data breach claim, here’s what you need to know about joining the action and how we’re helping people affected by this event.
News of the cybersecurity incident surfaced earlier this month, with as many as 900,000 people falling victim to a data exposure event. Names, contact information and even some details about contracts are involved in the leak, with an unsecured database left accessible between April 2019 and February 2020.
In response to the breach, we’ve launched our group action for people affected, and we’re representing Claimants on a No Win, No Fee basis.
If you’re one of the 900,000 people affected by the recent cybersecurity event, you could be entitled to make a Virgin Media GDPR claim for compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis with us.
As the breach period took place between April 2019 and February 2020, the GDPR applies. This vital piece of legislation not only means that Virgin could receive a substantial GDPR fine, but it also allows victims to make a claim for compensation. Money from fines is a totally separate thing to a legal case which is why we’ve set up the group action for people to join.
As a victim, all you need to do is complete the simple forms on the main page here and you can get your GDPR compensation claim started right away.
When it comes to the final Virgin Media data breach compensation amounts that Claimants in the group action could be entitled to receive, how does it work?
It’s important that we address this as some people can be worried that they’re “just a number” when it comes to joining a large group action. With the action potentially reaching as high as 900,000 people, you may want to make sure that you personally receive the proper justice that you’re entitled to.
Here’s an insight into how it works when it comes to settling a large action so you can be in the know right from the start.
