Industry experts are predicting that the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) investigation into the Equifax data breach is now coming to an end. If the FCA finds Equifax guilty of not looking after consumer data with the necessary levels of care, this could open the floodgates to millions of compensation claims being made against Equifax.

So, what should you do if you think your data has been compromised because of the Equifax data hack? How do you make a claim against Equifax?

  1. If you are in any way concerned, contact the data breach compensation solicitors at Hayes Connor Solicitors and let us know. You can register your details here
  1. We will check if you have had your data breached (if the company has not written to you and admitted as much already)
  2. Once we have established that your data has been violated – and the extent of this failing – we can start the claims procedure on your behalf. Of course, we’ll only do this with your explicit agreement!
  3. Once you have registered with our data breach compensation solicitors, it’s important to keep a ‘diary’ or note of events since the hack. This will help us with your case. This includes things like whether your card been used without permission, if there are transactions that your bank has picked up that you haven’t made and if you are getting more ‘spam’ or junk email with your name on it
  4. You should also keep a note if you are anxious or worried by the thought of people being able to access your data
  5. When the results of the FCA investigation are revealed, we will make sure you are part of our group action against Equifax. With this group action claim, you and the other claimants collectively bring your cases to court against Equifax. Where circumstances are very similar, group actions can be a powerful tool and can have a bigger impact than a single claim.
