Could accident claims solicitors covering Cwmbran assist me in making a data breach compensation claim?
Our personal injury solicitors covering Cwmbran may be able to assist you if you have suffered material or non material harm due to a data breach by an organisation that collected, stored or processed your personal data. Did you know that not only could a data breach cause you financial damage, by way of identity fraud or financial theft, but it could also affect you mentally. We know only too well how claimants with data breach claims could suffer psychologically, with some of them experiencing anxiety, depression or loss of sleep. A legal precedent was set in a prior case that could make it possible for you to claim for psychological or psychiatric harm suffered due to a data breach by an organisation that has your data. No matter whether a healthcare provider sent your personal medical details to the wrong address, when you had provided them with the correct one, or whether an employer disclosed personal information to an unauthorised colleague, we could help. As long as you could prove wrongdoing on the part of the organisation had caused your data to be breached, and that it had caused you harm, you could be eligible for compensation. Why not call our personal injury claims specialists, to obtain a free eligibility cheque on your case? We would be delighted to provide you with specialist solicitors, authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, to assist with your claim.
Would accident claims solicitors covering Cwmbran be able to help me if I was partly at fault for my accident?
Unfortunately, sometimes people could contribute to their own accidents. If you have been partially at fault for an accident in which you were injured, you may be under the misapprehension that this would completely close off your chances to get compensation. However, this may not be the case. In some cases, you could make a split liability claim, as long as you could prove that there was another at fault party for your accident. Such claims could be difficult to prove, however. There may be a lot of negotiation required between the parties to reach a settlement arrangement. This is why having a good, experienced lawyer on your side could significantly impact your case. We would be happy to assess your split liability claim to see if you could have a good chance of securing compensation.
