Corporate breach

Your data is valuable and private companies should protect it like they protect their own business interests. Unfortunately, they often forget to treat customer, client and employee information with the importance that they should which becomes costly for them in terms of paying compensation to you for their errors.

What is a corporate data breach claim?

Business data breach compensation: A Corporate Data Breach Claim is any claim against a private company such as businesses, banks, retailers and law firms.

Unfortunately, private companies are only too interested in making money. Due to this, private companies are regularly ignorant and falling foul of the stringent Data Protection Act/GDPR provisions by unlawfully handling or disclosing personal information.

Examples of our work:

  • Ex-Santander employee accessing financial information of an estranged friend following a falling out.
  • Law firms sending letters with personal information to an incorrect address when they have the correct one.
  • Business and retailers using photographs and disclosing personal information on their website and social media accounts without consent.
  • When private companies have suffered a cyberattack and personal information has been stolen due to insufficient IT systems.

You may be thinking that you do not want to sue a private company. However, our approach is that if privacy is not preserved, or is ill-used, this could have severe emotional, financial and reputational consequences for the person affected and leaves you open to being a victim of identity fraud. Even if there has been no loss suffered, you can still make a Corporate Data Breach Claim if data has not been fully protected.

If private companies do make a mistake with your information/data, you have a right to claim compensation.

Why contact Irvings?

If we agree that you have a Corporate Data Breach/GDPR claim, we will offer you ‘no-win-no fee-terms’. Once you are signed up with us, we will either:

  • Lodge a complaint to the defaulting private company and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) if you have not yet received an admission for the data protection breach, or,
  • Take over any complaint to the defaulting private company and/or the ICO if it is still ongoing.

Once the complaint procedure has concluded, we will then instruct a specialist Barrister to assess the prospects of your cases and provide advice for obtaining insurance to fully cover you for bringing your claim if the defaulting private company did not want to settle out of Court. This insurance means that you will not pay a penny to bring the case, whether you win or lose.

If you win you will receive compensation and we know that most (if not all) other solicitors will take 25% of whatever compensation you receive as standard. We are specialist whereas other firms are not and we will always look to reduce (or even remove) such a percentage as compensation is for our clients and not us. We will always strive to conclude your case swiftly and for the highest amount of compensation as is possible.
