Month: April 2019
There’s still time to start your we-vibe data breach compensation claim and be a part of the legal action we’ve been running since news of the scandal hit the headlines.
We’re representing a large group of victims on a No Win, No Fee basis. Claims are live and being pursued in the UK, and we’re still taking cases forward now (just last week we added more Claimants to our growing list).
Although you’re still in time to join the action, we strongly recommend that you initiate your legal case as soon as you can. We’ve been fighting for justice since 2017, so we’re more than two years on from taking cases forward. Deadlines are looming, and we don’t want you to miss out on your chance to claim.
We have taken No Win, No Fee claims for compensation forward for victims of the Bounty data breach after the ICO issued a significant fine of £400,000.00.
The fine from the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office) was issued in accordance with the previous rules before GDPR came into force in May 2018. Victims of the incident may be entitled to make a claim for data breach compensation, and we have already been contacted for help.
Our lawyers are fighting for justice in dozens of different data breach actions. This is on top of the individual cases we help people with as well. If you need advice, we can help you on a free and no-obligation basis.
We’ve been contacted for help after news of the PFEW cyber attacks hit the headlines. We’ve taken cases forward on a No Win, No Fee basis.
This latest action is one of the dozens different data breach group actions and multi-party actions we’re fighting for justice in. That’s on top of the thousands who have come to us for help for individual cases having been at the forefront of data breach compensation action since 2015.
Unlike some law firms, we don’t just register information and wait a while until we can determine if there’s a claim to make. We take action right away, and we offer our clients No Win, No Fee representation as we fight for justice for data breach victims.
We’ve taken cases on with our No Win, No Fee policy for victims of the recent Police Federation of England and Wales data breach incidents.
The cyber attacks that hit the PFEW took place in March 2019; the first on 9th, and the second on the 21st. Neither were thought to have been specifically targeting PFEW and are understood to have been part of a wider malware incident.
PFEW has confirmed that they’re unable to rule out that information has been exposed. As they’re unable to rule it out, we can take claims for data breach compensation forward for anyone suffering distress as a result of the incident. There could be as many as 120,000 police employees that have been hit by the breaches.
Action has been taken in the wake of the massive Marriott cyber attack that was revealed last year, both here in the U.K. and in the U.S.
In the U.K., victims may be entitled to make a claim for data breach compensation if you were one of the 500 million people affected. If you’re a resident in England or Wales, we can represent you for the case. A claim is separate to any enforcement action and fines that may be issue by the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office). Those fines alone could end up in the hundreds of millions.
As well as claims and fines, testimonies and apologies took place last month as well. Here’s the latest.
