Data breach compensation claims

If you have been the victim of data breach, you may be entitled to compensation. If a company or public authority has violated your rights under the Data Protection Act, you may be entitled to compensation for the damage and distress caused. Even if you have suffered no financial loss as a result of the data breach, it may still be possible for you to claim damages for any distress suffered depending on the circumstances. You may also be able to bring claims for misuse of private information and/or breach of confidence depending on the facts of your case. 

Our data law experts can help you to claim compensation if you have been the victim of a data breach. For more information call us now on 0203 816 9274.

Bringing a claim for damages

Bringing a claim for damages before the courts can be a daunting prospect. If you issue a claim and lose, you could be ordered to pay your opponent’s legal costs. The stakes are, therefore, very high and you should seriously consider taking legal advice before beginning a claim. 

Our experts can advise you on the chances of success and the amount of compensation that you could receive if successful for competitive and affordable fixed fees. Alternatively, we may be able to offer you 'no win no fee' funding depending on the circumstances of your case. 

Our experts have years of litigation experience and can represent you throughout your case from beginning to end. We have secured damages payments totalling hundreds of thousands of pounds for successful claimants against various opponents including public authorities. Speak to a member of the team on 0203 816 9274 or complete our online enquiry form and we will contact you directly to discuss your situation.
