Data Breach Group Action Claims

When an organisation that holds people’s personal information is hacked or allows that personal data to become exposed in any other way, it is likely that many of those affected will have grounds to claim compensation.

Where you are one of many people whose data has been exposed following a breach of data protection regulations, you may be able to join with other people to take legal action together.

This type of collective legal action will take the form of a group action -such as those that have arisen following the large scale data hacks involving British Airways and EasyJet where payment card details were exposed.

There are many potential advantages to banding together with other claimants, including:

  • Boosting the funding available to your side to “level the playing field” against organisations that often have significant financial resources
  • Sharing knowledge b to build stronger claims
  • Securing a resolution faster by avoiding the need for lots of claims to be dealt with separately

If you believe your data has been exposed by a breach, it is strongly recommended to seek specialist legal advice as soon as possible.
