At Keller Postman UK, we help our clients get the compensation they deserve following data protection breaches, cybercrime, and other GDPR offences. Our expert lawyers deal with a significant volume of data breach cases each day, and during our work, we see how privacy violations affect people.
There are two main ways we get justice for our clients:
In most cases, data breaches are not caused by cybercriminals hacking huge organisations but by simple human errors. These incidents might not make the headlines, but for those affected, the experience can be devastating.
For example, our data breach solicitors have seen what can happen when sensitive information is sent to the wrong address by mistake.
Extremely personal financial information could be sent to an ex-partner’s email account or medical records posted to a neighbour who then shares the contents with others. In many cases, these types of breaches lead to family disputes and separation. In other data breach cases, sensitive personal information is passed to employers by third parties (e.g. recruiters, health organisations, the police etc.) when it should not have been. This can lead to employee/employer disputes and even cost people their jobs.
As a direct result of admin errors and poor data security processes, such data breaches can cause considerable distress, upset, embarrassment and harm. As such, the consequences of these errors are often far-reaching.
In many cases, when a breach happens, you will not be the only victim. In such circumstances, you might be able to join a group action claim.
With a group action claim, this group of people (the claimants) collectively bring their cases to court against a single defendant. These victims then fight together to achieve compensation. Where cases are similar, group actions can be a powerful tool and can have a bigger impact than a single claim.
At the moment, we have launched (or are considering launching) group action claims against the following companies:
Helping our clients get the compensation they deserve
These are just some examples of the types of data breach cases we deal with every day. And, as you can see, these are serious cases that can put people’s mental health, jobs, and even their lives at risk.
If an organisation fails to protect your personal and private information, you must have access to justice. Professional legal advice is necessary to help you to do this. Nevertheless, concerns about the cost of making a claim can stop people from appointing an expert data breach solicitor.
To help ensure you get the legal representation needed to win, at Keller Postman UK, our expert data breach solicitors work for you on a no-win, no-fee basis. This means, if your claim is not successful, you will not have to pay a penny towards your case.
