Our Virgin Media data breach group action has been ongoing since the start of 2020 when news of this significant leak first hit the media headlines. We are now representing thousands of people who have engaged us to pursue privacy compensation for distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information.
Because we are confident that we can succeed with the action, we are representing the clients who we act for on a No Win, No Fee basis. As things stand, we are hopeful that we are at a stage where we could settle the claims in the near future.
We believe that this leak was a clear breach of the GDPR and that there is no defence that Virgin Media could reasonably raise in respect of what happened. Ultimately, the information that had been exposed was left accessible online for a period of 10 months due to a configuration error. This was an avoidable incident that should never have happened in the first place, and resulted in significant information for some 900,000 people being exposed.
We are pursuing privacy compensation for distress caused by the loss of control of personal information, and our clients could be awarded thousands of pounds in damages as part of our Virgin Media group action. You do not have to have incurred any losses or expenses to be able to pursue a claim as most people will pursue damages just for the distress alone.
It is well worth claiming compensation for distress as our average compensation settlement as a firm is just over £6,000 in damages. Victims claiming in the Virgin Media data breach could be eligible for more or less than this, as it really depends on the impact and severity of the distress that has been caused to them.
If you have yet to start your privacy compensation claim as a victim of the Virgin Media data leak, you can find out if you are still eligible to join the class action by starting the process here now.
Please note that the final deadlines for closing the books on new claims may fall very soon. As such, there are no guarantees at this late stage.
If you are only just starting your claim, there is a lot that we need to do to make sure that you are fully prepared for any formal group action and court action that may take place.
