Virgin Media action: claim compensation for a security breach today


compensation for a security breach Virgin Media data security breach

The Virgin Media Group Action that we have launched is for the victims to claim compensation for a security breach that could – and should – have been avoided.

We consider that there has been a breach of the GDPR and that the 900,000 people affected are eligible to claim compensation. We’re representing victims for cases on a No Win, No Fee basis, and Claimants could be eligible to receive as much as £5,000.00 in damages.

Here’s some guidance about the breach, how you can claim and what you can claim for, and what you need to do; as well as a little about us as a leading firm of data breach and consumer action lawyers.

Compensation for a security breach that should have never happened

Victims whose information has been exposed can be eligible to claim compensation for a security breach that could – and should – have been avoided. The Virgin Media data breach should never have happened in the first place and could have been easily avoided, yet hundreds of thousands of people’s information has been exposed.

This website has been set up for anyone who has received confirmation that they are affected to be able to quickly and easily start a legal case today.

We’re representing victims for claims on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means that we can write off our legal fees if the claim doesn’t succeed, subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement.

About the action for justice

The Virgin Media data breach compensation action is a fight for justice for any of the 900,000 affected by the recently discovered security breach.

Over a ten-month breach period between April 2019 and February 2020, an unsecure database was left accessible. The leak was discovered by a security researcher, but not after an unknown third-party had already accessed it before. Because data has been exposed, we consider that there has been a breach of the GDPR which can allow victims to be able to pursue damages.

When you claim compensation for a security breach, you could be entitled to receive damages for:

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

It’s important to know that you don’t have to have suffered actual financial losses to be able to join the action. You can claim for just the distress you suffer alone, and this could mean a pay-out of up to £5,000.00 in-line with our very early estimations. You can read more about this here.
