Companies increasingly fail to safeguard the personal and financial information of their customers. Either because businesses inadvertently release private information or because outsiders hack into corporate systems, data breaches have unfortunately become a common feature of the internet age.
California law protects consumers in the event of a data breach. When a data breach occurs, a company must follow certain procedures in notifying its customers of the loss of their information. In addition, companies may be held liable for disclosing their customer’s personal and confidential data, particularly if the customer has suffered financial harm as a result of the data breach.
KLF's consumer law attorneys work with you to determine if your legal rights were violated due to a data breach. If so, we evaluate your options for compensation, negotiate on your behalf, and file a lawsuit as necessary. If we find that others were harmed by the same type of data breach, we may be able to help them, too.
Contact us regardless of whether or not you are sure you have a case. We are here to help you make that determination. Based in Glendale, we represent consumers in the Los Angeles area and throughout California. All consultations are free and confidential.
If you would like to discuss a data breach and evaluate your potential options, we encourage you to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the firm at (818) 221-2800.
