GDPR breach compensation amounts in the Virgin Media action

Our early estimations in terms of the GDPR breach compensation amounts that victims of the Virgin Media leak may be entitled to receive have been widely publicised in the media. Our action was covered across mainstream news over the last few weeks where we were asked what people could expect to receive.

Our provisional early estimations show that victims of the data breach could be entitled to receive up to around £5,000.00 each. It could be more, or it could be less, as we do need to consider individual factors which can be unique to each person.

How we calculate cases

How we work out GDPR breach compensation amounts for victims of the Virgin Media breach will include factors such as:

  • What information for you was involved in the leak during the breach period between April 2019 and February 2020;
  • Whether there is anything involved that is particularly personal and sensitive. For example, if you are one of the over 1,000 whose contract data was also involved, we know that incredibly personal and sensitive data may be involved;
  • Whether you have been targeted for fraud or theft – irrelevant of whether it was successful or not;
  • The personal impact for you.

The last one can be quite subjective and can depend a lot on the individual. Different people can be affected by a data breach in different ways, and people’s past experiences and domestic situations, and medical statuses, may also need to be considered. It’s very early days so we cannot know for sure just how the action will go, but these are factors that we will often look at closely for general data breach compensation cases.

The method for working out the GDPR breach compensation amounts applicable in cases is generally based on this model. It’s also based on our extensive years of experience representing victims in this complex and niche area of law.
