It’s crucial to contact a claim expert who can advise you on your legal rights if you’re looking for psychological distress compensation because a data breach has hurt you.
A personal data breach, on the other hand, is when a security incident within a company compromises the confidentiality, accessibility, or integrity of your personal data. However, only some violations of data privacy law can result in a claim.
Thus, your claim must satisfy the requirements even when your company doesn’t follow the General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR) and The Data Protection Act of 2018. The UK GDPR states the requirements that a personal data breach must meet for you to be eligible to bring the following claims:
- The information and data breach must contain your personal data
- It must be caused by the controller or processor of the data acting improperly
- The breach must cause you pain and suffering, either financially or psychologically
As you can see, one of the key requirements for making a claim is that the breach must result in physical, emotional, or financial harm to you. This includes any existing mental health conditions getting worse or developing certain psychological conditions due to the data breach.
