BA DATA BREACH COMPENSATION

WHY YOU SHOULD CLAIM COMPENSATION

spglawround

BA announced on the 7th September, 2018 that there had been a breach of its security systems leading to more than 380,000 customers like you having their personal data leaked.

This sensitive personal data included full names, debit/credit card numbers (including expiry dates and CVV's), addresses and email addresses. The breach has led to all customers being required to monitor financial transactions on their debit/credit cards and potentially cancel/request reissuance of their payment cards.

BA's response has been to only offer to reimburse customers who suffer "direct financial losses" and to offer "credit rate monitoring." This is not good enough.

Under Article 82 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) you have a right to compensation for non-material damage. This means compensation for inconvenience, distress and annoyance associated with the data leak.

This is not the first time that BA's IT systems have failed. BA have treated their customers poorly over the past few years and it is time to stand up to them and take action.

By joining a group action that we believe will attract thousands of others like you led by the experts at SPG Law, you have the best chance of ensuring you receiver the highest compensation possible from BA.

WE MAKE IT SIMPLE


SPG will ensure that the process is simple and straightforward.

Q. HOW MUCH COMPENSATION WILL I RECEIVE?

We believe that we will be able to claim up to £1,500 on your behalf. This will be dependent upon your personal circumstances.

Q. WILL I HAVE TO GO TO COURT?

Probably not. If BA insists on defending the case all the way to trial, then a handful of Claimants (likely between 10 and 20) will be selected out of the tens of thousands who will likely participate in this action in order to give evidence. Anyway, going to court is nothing to be afraid of- BA is in the wrong!

Q. WHAT WILL IT COST ME TO BRING THE CLAIM AGAINST BA?

Nothing upfront. In signing up, you will be asked to enter into a "no win, no fee" agreement with us. Under the terms of this agreement, you will only be liable to pay our fees and expenses, as well as those of barristers, funders and insurers, if the case is successful. The exact amount you will pay will depend upon how long the case takes, how much time the lawyers need to spend on it, and the level of compensation obtain. Unlike some other firms we cap our fees at a maximum of 35% including VAT.

Q. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SIGN UP?

A couple of minutes. Once you have signed up, we will be back in touch with you within the next few weeks to obtain the rest of the information which is necessary in order for you to participate in the proposed Group Litigation.

Q. WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED TO SUBMIT TO SIGN UP?

Name, email, and phone number.

Q. HOW DO I KNOW IF I'M ELIGIBLE FOR COMPENSATION?

Your information will be reviewed and then it will be determined if you are eligible to join the group litigation- all at no cost to you. There is no risk and all of your information is kept confidential.

Q. WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE MY COMPENSATION?

All of the lawyers in the proposed group action are committed to obtaining compensation on your behalf as quickly as possible. As BA is one of the largest companies in the UK, however, it may be necessary to take them to court. If a quick settlement is achieved, you may receive your compensation in the next six months but if BA chooses to fight, it could take two years or so.

Q. HOW WILL YOU BRING MY CLAIM?

We will first try to settle your claim with BA by way of a pre-action letter. If that is unsuccessful, your claim may be brought as part of a Group Litigation Order (a "GLO") which is the mechanism by which the courts in England and Wales manage thousands of cases which are all brought together at the same time. 

Q. WHAT LAWS ARE BEING USED TO BRING THE CLAIM AGAINST BA?

We will bring claims on your behalf under the Data Protection Act 2018 (which incorporates the GDPR) and in the torts of misuse of private information/breach of confidence.

Q. WILL I HAVE TO PAY BA COSTS IF THE CLAIM IS LOST?

In the event that it is necessary to litigate, we will arrange insurance on behalf of all Claimants who sign up with us. This will protect you against having to pay BA's costs in the unlikely event that the claim is lost.

Q. I WORK FOR BA, AM I STILL ELIGIBLE TO JOIN THIS PROPOSED GROUP LITIGATION?

 Yes.
