At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

GDPR Breach Compensation

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

Did you know you are entitled to compensation if you’ve suffered a breach of your data? Organisations have a legal duty to securely store and process information held on you, however all too often negligent practices result in your details being disclosed. This can have a devastating affect on the victim when their personal information has been exposed.

Distress only claims

If you have suffered a breach but with no measurable loss, you are still entitled to claim for distress only. Awards for distress only may be lower unless significant personal information has been compromised. Significant breaches can attach very high pay-outs.

Distress & loss

If you have suffered a breach together with a measurable loss you are entitled to claim compensation for both. The loss could be financial if your financial information has been compromised, or injury if the information compromised is so sensitive that the breach has caused you subsequent psychological harm.

If you have suffered distress, financial harm, ill-health, or a worsening of an existing condition because of the actions or omissions of an organisation, our specialist data breach department could be able to help you to obtain redress.

Types of breaches

Thompsons have successfully achieved compensation for their clients, in a number of cases involving a wide range of different be cases involving a wide range of different types of information, including:

  • Social work records
  • Medical records
  • Personal photographs, films and videos
  • Personal address and telephone details
  • Employment information
  • Financial information
