What is a technological data breach claim?

Phone company data breach compensation: To many of us, our mobile phone is everything and contains the details of most of our lives. We rely on mobile phone manufacturers to handle our information correctly and securely but they sometimes fall foul of the stringent Data Protection Act/GDPR provisions.

When they do, the level of personal information that has been breached can be unprecedented and they are often targets for cybercriminals. The rise of the digital age is still ongoing and it is of utmost importance that mobile phone manufacturers are penalised for not acted in accordance with data protection legislation.

Examples of our work:

  • Old mobile phone content being transferred to a stranger instead of new mobile handset.
  • Mobile phone number being allocated to more than one person allowing access to WhatsApp messaging history.
  • Mobile phone contact being shared with a stranger and the said contacts having personal pin numbers and passwords within.
  • When mobile phone manufacturers have suffered a cyberattack and personal information has been stolen due to having insufficient IT systems in place.

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 Technological Data Breach Claim if data has not been fully protected.

If a phone company misuses or fails to adequately protect your personal information, you have a right to claim compensation.

Why contact Irvings?

If we agree that you have a Technological 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 with the mobile phone manufacturer 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 mobile phone manufacturer 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 mobile phone manufacturer 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.
