Data Breach Lawsuits

As is evident by the recent Spokeo v. Robins case, it has become all too common to hear a news story about a data breach – even federal agencies have been hacked. Large companies and even banks have had to deal with this ever-growing problem. If your personal information has been stolen in a data breach, you are likely very concerned -- and for good reason. Your personal information can be used to get loans, credit cards, and to commit other financial crimes. Once your personal data has been accessed, it is often sold to criminal enterprises around the world and used for various illegal activities. What can you do if your personal information was stolen? Do you have a right to seek restitution from the corporation that failed to keep your personal information secure?

Seeking Compensation After a Data Breach

In most data breaches, there are thousands, or hundreds of thousands of victims. To get justice, consumers often band together in a class action suit. If you have suffered financial harm or a damaged reputation, and have spent hours, days, months or longer trying to rectify your credit report, we at the Rhine Law Firm, P.C. can help. Our goal is to help make you "whole" again in financial terms.

How to File a Claim in a Data Breach Case

The process involves various steps. Investigating the facts about how well your personal information was protected is an important issue. Our firm can assist you to seek compensation for damages, and will take the following actions on your behalf:

  • Evaluate the safeguards a merchant had in place to prevent such a breach.
  • Compare the safeguards used by the company to the accepted practices in that industry.
  • Determine how quickly the merchant informed you of the breach.
  • Work with various federal and state agencies in the data-gathering and reporting process.

When Your Personal Information is in the Hands of Criminals

A data breach can reveal much more about you than just your name and address. Your social security number, credit card information, security question answers, passwords, and in some types of breaches, your medical information, can all fall into the hands of criminals. In many instances, we have represented victims whose tax returns were rejected because thieves had already filed returns using their name. The mess this creates is frustratingly complex and takes an enormous amount of time and effort to undue. When your personal information has been so seriously compromised, legal action can be taken against the company that allowed the breach to happen. The restoration of your privacy may be next to impossible, as the basic data is still out there. You can change passwords, get new credit cards, and so on, but your personal data is still available to criminals who will use it for criminal purposes– all extremely damaging to you and your credit.
