Amerita Data Breach Investigation
The Lyon Firm is investigating the Pharmerica & Amerita data breach event that may have impacted over 219,000 individuals. Consider legal action to hold negligent companies accountable for their lack of security. We believe it is the duty of America’s biggest companies to protect any personal data they collect and store.
In September 2023, Amerita, a subsidiary of PharMerica, filed a data breach notice with the Attorney General of Texas and HHS after discovering that an unauthorized party was able to access sensitive personal data from the company’s IT network.
Amerita has concluded that the incident resulted in a possible leak of a vast amount of consumers’ sensitive information, including their names, addresses and health information. Amerita has begun sending out data breach notification letters to all impacted individuals, and explains all the details that is currently known.
If you received a data breach notification from Amerita or PharMerica, it is important to understand your ongoing privacy risks and what you can do to help mitigate any fraudulent activity. Our data breach lawyers can help you learn more about the incident and move to compensate you for your potential losses.
