Huge numbers of Derbyshire Virgin Media customers have come forward to claim compensation as victims of the 2020 data breach following further coverage of the action in the media.
The Derbyshire Telegraph has featured a piece on the compensation action and the rights of midlands victims. Those who are affected by the data breach could be entitled to estimated compensation amounts of up to £5,000.00 as part of a possible £4.5bn package being pursued.
There could be more than 10,000 Derbyshire Virgin Media customers affected, and victims can claim via the Virgin Media Data Breach Group Action website here.
Derbyshire Virgin Media customers come forward to claim compensation
A large number of Derbyshire Virgin Media customers have joined the compensation action for justice following coverage of the case in the Derbyshire Telegraph last week.
Victims affected by the breach should already have been notified, with emails and texts sent out to confirm the bad news. If you have received confirmation that your information has been exposed in the breach, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
All you need to do is go to the dedicated website here to start your legal case. It doesn’t take long to complete the forms and get started to secure your place in what is set to be a huge data breach compensation action.
What are you claiming for?
Claims can be pursued for the distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information, and we may also be able to recover losses and expenses as well. The GDPR allows victims to pursue claims for damages, so the law is on your side.
In some cases, you can simply be eligible to make a claim for just being the victim of a breach anyway. As such, if you are affected by the breach, you should join the action for justice.
The compensation values could differ based on the nature of the data exposed about you. With some customers (potentially over 1,000) having details leaked that links them to porn, those victims could be at risk of fraud and extortion crimes. We know that at least one unknown third-party accessed the information during the 10-month breach period, and it remains to be seen as to whether they intend to use the data for malicious purposes.
How does the No Win, No Fee work?
Victims who are eligible to make a claim for compensation as a victim of the Virgin Media data breach can benefit from No Win, No Fee representation.
In short, this means that legal fees can be written off if the case loses, subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement. We offer this because we believe in access to justice and because we consider that we can win the compensation action.
Are you one of the Derbyshire Virgin Media customers affected? Or are you a victim from elsewhere in the UK? Sign-up today to join the compensation action and benefit from the No Win, No Fee representation.
