Data Protection Breaches
Personal information is very precious and there can often be serious consequences if it is shared with the wrong people. This might happen deliberately, or because an organisation has made a mistake. In some cases, the inadvertent sharing of personal information can have significant financial consequences.
Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force in 2018, everyone has become more conscious of the rules around use of personal data, but even before that, we at Morecrofts had considerable expertise in acting for clients who had suffered from such data or privacy breaches. We have dealt in particular with many cases involving adoptive parents who have had their information leaked by mistake by the local authority or even by the court, and helped them to claim compensation for the financial losses they incurred as a result.
Not every breach has significant financial consequences, but if it does, you may be able to claim compensation, and our expert team are always ready to help
