Data Breach Claims

Compensation For Data Breach Claims In The UK

New legislation about data protection came into force in the United Kingdom in May 2018. This law gives individuals more control over personal data and the type of data organisations can hold. The Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) include provisions for processing personal data of individuals within the European Economic Area.

If any organisation that holds your data suffers a data breach, you can claim compensation for a data breach. You are eligible for data breach compensation when you have lost your data or such data is destroyed, disclosed or accessed in an unauthorised way – whether by accident or deliberately by any individual inside or outside the organisation. If you have suffered data loss, you should rely on a reputable and experienced team of solicitors like Angelus Law to claim compensation. Angelus Law is a firm of solicitors who specialise in Data Breach Claims. We employ some of the best solicitors in the industry. Our team is qualified to handle any type of data breach case in the United Kingdom. Here is why you need to rely on Angelus Law to get compensation for your data loss cases.

Any organisation that controls data should have the appropriate technical and organisational infrastructure to protect your data. They should obtain consent for its collections and disclose properly that they are collecting your data. That’s why you see so many pop-ups informing you that a website uses cookies to gather your data. Although the majority of businesses take the necessary steps to protect the data they collect, all organisations don’t do it. All business entities are not the same. If you lose data or someone misuses your data, and you suffer financial losses and distress, you can claim compensation for a data breach. Contact our expert solicitors to check if you can claim compensation for a data breach.

What Are Data Breach Claims?

A data breach involves the intentional or unintentional release of secure or confidential information to an unauthorised organisation. It’s treated as a security incident where sensitive or confidential data is copied stolen, viewed, transmitted or used by an unauthorised individual or organisation. Credit cards, bank account details, personally identifiable information (PII), personal health information (PHI), intellectual property, and trade secrets of businesses are some examples of data breaches.

The Impact Of Data Breaches

We know that the full impact of a data breach is not apparent until months after the violation occurs. Financial losses will start to occur only between three to six months after the violation. The reason for this is the perpetrator doesn’t use your data right away. It’s batched and used over time.

The impact of data breaches can go much further than financial losses. We have seen many instances where data breaches result in adverse life events. Some examples are relationship stress, losing their job, dislocation from family and friends, and moving to a new home or area. All this can cause severe stress in you and lead to a diagnosable psychological injury. But this may happen only months after the breach.

If an organisation or individual didn’t protect your confidential data, you have the right to compensation for a data protection breach. The expert team of solicitors at Angelus Law can help you get the maximum amount of compensation for your losses. Call us today for all your data protection breach claims.
