About the compensation action
Victims launching their Virgin Media data breach claims will likely be grouped together to form one action, which is typically what happens in large data events like this.
The group action can then allow for the common issues, like liability, to be resolved as part of one set of court proceedings. Victims can still then claim their own compensation which could be based on categorising people based on individual elements of their case. You could be entitled to recover compensation for the distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information, as well as for any reasonable losses and expenses too. This is important given that we know at least one unknown third-party has accessed the exposed information during the data breach period of April 2019 to February 2020.
A recent court case has also paved the way for people to make a claim for simply being the victim of a breach as well, so it’s worth signing-up in any event.
