A hack occurred in which the personal and financial details of Ticketmaster customers were stolen by cyber criminals. The information stolen by the hackers was all information that, in the wrong hands, could be misused for fraudulent purposes.
Everybody has a right to expect that the personal data that they have shared with a business or organisation will be properly and securely stored and not shared without permission. When this is not the case and personal or sensitive information has been mistakenly shared, lost or stolen, you could make a claim for compensation.
This is where you need the expertise of top data breach solicitors to help you pursue you right to be compensated. When a data breach occurs this can cause you financial loss as well as massive inconvenience. You don’t even need to have lost out financially as other factors such as loss of reputation, stress, and inconvenience can also be claimed for by a data breach law firm on your behalf.

Can I Make A Claim Using A Data Breach Solicitor?
If your personal data has been leaked, shared or stolen, then it is likely that you have a valid data breach claim for which you will need a solicitor. We can put you in touch with a data breach law firm who will be able to look into things for you to see if there is a case worth pursuing.
Usually the first you will hear about any potential claim will come via a notification from the business or organisation from which your data has been leaked. This may have been by email or letter, so if you receive such a notification don’t ignore it.
Often data breach law firms may pool together claimants under a collective group litigation if a specific data breach occurred that affected multiple people within a set time period.
Frequently asked questionsQuestions we are frequently asked by our users
What Compensation Could A Data Breach Solicitor Claim On My Behalf?
A data breach solicitor will work on your behalf to secure the maximum GDPR breach compensation to which you are entitled. This would include not only compensation for any financial losses, but also due to any distress caused by the data breach.
Examples of financial impact might include losses incurred as a result of cybercriminals applying for credit cards or setting up fraudulent bank accounts using your stolen data or even gaining access to your own existing bank accounts. Even if the breach has not led to any specific financial loss to you, you are still entitled to claim compensation for the distress, worry and inconvenience resulting from the data breach.
How do I know if I have a valid data breach claim?
An organisation is required under GDPR to inform you if they have breached your personal data in any way, and typically the first you might hear about it would be an email from the company concerned. Despite this, you may not know about a data breach by a particular company until you hear that they have been fined by the Information Commissioner’s Office ICO.
When you contact us, we’ll get in touch with the company in question and use any information available from the ICO to establish whether your data has been breached.
I've suffered no financial losses as a result of the data breach, can I still make a claim?
If an organisation has failed to protect your data, you are entitled to claim compensation regardless of whether you have suffered any losses or not. We can make a claim on your behalf for anguish or anxiety caused by a data breach, but if you have suffered financial harm as a direct result of the breach, the amount of compensation you might be able to claim would likely be far greater.
How much is a data breach claim likely to be worth?
Each data breach claim will be looked at on its own merits, but in most cases where a claim for distress has been made, the minimum level of damages would usually be in the region of a £1,000. Much depends on the circumstances of the breach and any impact. Where the data breach has caused significant financial loss or the leak of highly sensitive personal data, then the level of compensation could be significantly higher.
How much will it cost me to make a data breach claim?
We work on a No Win, No Fee basis, so this means that if your claim is not successful, you will not owe us a thing. Only in the event of a successful compensation claim would you be required to pay us a percentage of your settlement, so there is absolutely no risk involved in making a data breach claim.
How do I know if my data has been breached?
In the event of a data breach, whether caused through an error, leak, or theft, an organisation is required to inform those that may have been affected. Usually the first you will hear if your data has been breached might be an email or letter from the company concerned. Sometimes you may hear about it first in the media when a company has been fined by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Can a solicitor help confirm I was one of those affected by a data breach?
When you contact us, we’ll put you in touch with an expert data breach solicitor who will be able to contact the company in question and use any information you have provides plus that available from the ICO to establish whether your data has indeed been breached.
Can I still claim even though I’ve suffered no financial losses as a result of the data breach?
It’s not just financial losses that are taken into consideration when it comes to data breach compensation. If an organisation has failed to securely store your data, your data breach solicitor can claim for any distress that has been caused to you as a result of the data breach.
