Our data breach solicitors have seen what can happen when sensitive information is not correctly looked after. Such privacy violations can have a disastrous emotional impact, often leading to family disputes, separation, employee/employer disputes and even job losses.
In most cases, personal data breaches are not caused by cybercriminals hacking huge organisations but by simple human mistakes. As a direct result of admin errors and poor data security processes, these privacy violations can cause considerable distress, upset, embarrassment and harm. As such, the consequences of these errors are often far-reaching, and you have a legal right to hold the guilty party to account.
At Keller Lenkner UK, our data protection lawyers are specialists in data breach law. So, we understand what it takes to make a successful data breach claim across a range of sectors.
IF YOU HAVE BEEN THE VICTIM OF A DATA BREACH, REGARDLESS OF THE TYPE OF ORGANISATION INVOLVED, WE CAN HELP.

While each case is judged on its own merits, there are some things we would typically look for when it comes to when claiming compensation following a data breach, cybercrime or other GDPR violation:
With stolen data, cybercriminals can make purchases using your bank and credit cards, apply for credit in your name, set up fraudulent bank accounts and access your existing online accounts.
GDPR failures, cybercrime and data breaches can have a significant impact on you, both mentally and physically. They can cause or exacerbate anxiety, stress and other psychological conditions.
