Victims of health data breaches could suffer substantial distress because this is precisely the kind of information that we want to maintain strict confidentiality over. We do not want everyone knowing absolutely everything about our medical details and medical histories, so it can be incredibly worrying when such information has been exposed or misused.
The GDPR entitles everyone to have protection in respect of how information is processed and stored. The law also affords us additional protection for what is known as “special category” information, of which medical information can fall within this category. This is recognition that this is the type of data that could cause significant distress if we lose control over it.
Some of the most significant data breach compensation cases we pursue for people involve medical information, so we know all too well how significant the impact can be. As we will explain below, you do have rights in accordance with GDPR if your healthcare data has been misused or compromised.
Anyone who has suffered health data breaches could be eligible to pursue a GDPR compensation claim where you could recover damages for the loss of control of your personal information. A claim could allow you to recover damages for distress as an “injury to feelings”, which is what most people will settle their claim for. You may also be entitled to recover compensation for any applicable losses and expenses, but these are often not an issue in most claims.
Our average data breach compensation settlement is just over £6,000 in damages per claimant, which is mostly for individual clients and includes a broad spectrum of cases. However, we have typically settled claims for compensation involving health data breaches in excess of £10,000 because of the significance of the distress that can be caused.
If we believe that you have a case to pursue, we may be able to represent you for a claim on a No Win, No Fee basis. You can contact our team here now for free, no-obligation advice in respect of starting a GDPR privacy claim now.
