Council data breach compensation claims

data breaches

Council data breach compensation claims are some of the most common legal cases that we take forward, and the impact on the victims can be substantial.

Councils and local authority agencies often hold a great deal of information about thousands and thousands of people. This can include financial and employment data for council tax matters, and even medical data for benefits or social services matters. It can be the full range of data, which means that the impact on a victim can be substantial.

We can offer No Win, No Fee representation for compensation claims arising from councils and local authority agencies like social services.

What can you claim for?

Council data breach compensation claims can involve a number of elements. With councils holding a wealth of data about a lot of people, you may find that a serious amount of information about you is exposed or misused.

Generally speaking, the more a victim suffers, the more a case could be worth. Most claims are valued based on the impact to the victim, so the more you suffer, the more a claim can be valued at. If it’s private and sensitive medical data that has been misused or exposed, the impact can often be substantial, and this is reflected in any compensation award.

Victims can also claim for any financial losses suffered as a result of a breach. You can claim for just the distress or, in some cases, for simply being the victim of a breach as a result of a recent court ruling.

It can only take one leaked social services file, or poor security for a council data breach to cause a serious event.
