Compensation claims for consumer data breaches can allow thousands of people to group their cases together into one efficient set of legal proceedings.
Court proceedings may be brought together to form a Group Litigation Order (GLO) which can be the best way to proceed with large volumes of cases where there are similar or identical issues. In a data breach setting, this usually means that singular events such as a cyberattack or a leak has led to the information for a large number of people being affected. Rather than pursuing thousands or even millions of individual claims, people can bring their cases together to better resolve the issues.

If you’ve fallen victim to so-called TalkTalk fraudsters as a result of your information being exposed in the 2015 data breach, we can help you.
Some of the people who have asked us for help who were affected by the TalkTalk data breach have been targeted by fraudsters. Criminals have contacted people posing as TalkTalk, and they’ve been able to convince some people that they’re the real deal. They’ve achieved this because they’ve been able to provide personal data for the victims, including TalkTalk account information, and even details about legitimate complaints that have been made.
We can only assume that the criminals have got hold of this information because of the 2015 breach. That’s why anyone who has been targeted by fraudsters may be able to join the compensation action we’ve been running for the last few years.
There has been a key update in the TalkTalk data breach scandal from 2015, as the information for thousands more victims affected in the scandal has been found online.
An additional 4,545 customers are understood to have been affected after their information was discovered online. This is in addition to the over 155,000 that were found to have been affected years ago.
We’re representing a group of victims who are claiming data breach compensation having been affected by the original incident. If you’ve yet to claim, or if you’re one of the thousands of additional victims who have been affected, we may be able to help you.
