Are you eligible to join the Virgin Media data breach action?
You could be eligible to sign-up for a Virgin Media data breach compensation claim if you are one of the 900,000 victims affected by the recently uncovered incident.
You should have been informed already if you are a victim of the incident or not. Most notifications have been sent by email or text and should have been issued months ago. If you have received the data breach notification, you should be eligible to start a No Win, No Fee compensation case today.
Whether you just had personal data exposed, or if you were one of the circa 1,000 people whose contract information was also involved, you could be eligible to claim either way.
What is the action for?
The Virgin Media data breach compensation action is for anyone affected by the incident to receive damages as a result of the loss of control of their personal information. If anyone has also suffered any losses or incurred expenses, these can be accounted for as well.
However, you can just claim for the distress alone, which the GDPR can allow you to receive compensation for. In most cases, people will be claiming for just the distress caused, and victims could be eligible to receive up to £5,000.00 in damages, based on early initial estimations.
We are confident that we can succeed with the action which is why we are representing clients for cases on a No Win, No Fee basis. We need to establish that Virgin Media has been negligent, and we believe that we can establish this given what happened in the incident. Data had been left unsecure for a period of 10 months due to an incorrectly configured database, which was an avoidable incident. We will then make the case that victims should be eligible to receive damages for any distress suffered as well.
