This is one of the dozens of data breach actions that our lawyers are proudly fighting for justice in.
When is the British Airways claim deadline?
There isn’t yet a formal date for the British Airways claim deadline. However, we believe that the lawyers who are acting for BA are seeking a short cut-off point which may limit the amount of people who can claim compensation.
Before the deadline hits, you’ll normally need to have your claim formally lodged as part of the action, and you’ll need to have complied with any requests the court makes when it comes to evidence and information.
It can take time to properly prepare a case, so the longer you leave it, the greater the risk can be for missing the deadline.
What if you miss the British Airways claim deadline?
If you miss the formal, court-approved British Airways claim deadline, you will likely be unable to benefit from any decision in the BA Group Action.
This means that you will be normally be unable to receive any compensation as part of a settlement package in the action. You can ask the court to join the action after the deadline has passed but, in our experience, this is usually incredibly difficult to achieve.
You’d need to demonstrate to the court that there was a good reason for missing the deadline, and this isn’t an easy thing to do. The reason that you didn’t know is not usually accepted. We have seen other firms in previous actions try and lodge claims after the deadline, and they failed to do so.
