Virgin Media – a personal information data breach

personal information data breach

The Virgin Media personal information data breach was a significant event that has affected some 900,000 victims who can now be entitled to bring claims for compensation.

We represent clients and have launched legal action on behalf of victims, and if you have yet to start your case, you can sign-up quickly and easily on the main section of this website here now.

As a leading firm of data breach and consumer action specialists, we have agreed to act for clients on a No Win, No Fee basis and we have launched our formal action.

Compensation for a personal data breach

Victims of a personal information data breach like we have seen with the Virgin Media leak can be entitled to bring a claim for compensation. Where we believe that we can succeed with a legal case, we can offer No Win, No Fee representation so our clients can be protected if the claim does not succeed.

For victims of the Virgin Media data breach, we are proud to be working in this way as we believe that we can succeed with the action.

When you make a claim for a personal information data breach, you can be entitled to receive damages for:

  • Any distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information, known as General Damages; and
  • Losses and expenses, known as Special Damages.

Key thing to note: you do not have to have suffered any form of actual financial loss or incurred any expenses to be able to bring a case. You can claim just for the distress element alone, which could see estimated pay-outs of up to £5,000.00.

Eligibility for a case

You should be eligible to join the Virgin Media compensation action we have launched if you are one of the 900,000 victims of the recent data exposure. If you have received confirmation that your information was left unsecure during the breach period from April 2019 to February 2020, we should be able to help you.

You should have already received confirmation if you are affected. You are also entitled to know exactly what data of yours has been involved, as some people have had incredibly personal and sensitive contract data also leaked.
