With 900,000 Virgin Media customers affected by the data breach, it’s important that victims know their rights when it comes to the legal action they can take. Victims can be entitled to make a compensation claim for the distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information. As featured in the news (The Sun) today, pay-outs could potentially reach the £5,000 mark.
It’s incredibly important that we raise awareness about the Virgin Media data breach compensation action in the news, as leading advocates of consumer rights.
The total compensation bill Virgin Media could face may reach an eyewatering £4.5bn, which once again demonstrates the importance of getting cybersecurity right. This was an avoidable incident in our view and is a clear breach of the GDPR. AS such, victims can be entitled to make a compensation claim.
We’ve notified Virgin Media and started our action, and we’re representing victims for legal cases on a No Win, No Fee basis.
If you have received confirmation that your information was exposed during the 10-month breach period between April 2019 and February 2020, you may be eligible for a case. We’re offering No Win, No Fee representation as we have with the over 35 other data actions that we’re involved in.
