The Lyon Firm Files St. Joseph’s Data Breach Lawsuit

The Lyon Firm has filed a class action complaint after the recent St. Joseph’s/Candler Health System cyberattack and data breach resulted in unauthorized access to customer data. The complaint notes that around 1.4 million class members suffered tangible losses and emotional distress after their data was compromised. Personal data compromised in the data breach includes the following:

  • Patient names
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Social Security number
  • Driver’s license number
  • Patient account number
  • Billing account number
  • Financial information
  • Health insurance plan
  • Member ID
  • Medical record number
  • Dates of service
  • Provider names
  • Medical and clinical treatment information

Victims of the data breach are now at risk because of St. Joseph’s/Candler Health System alleged negligent online security which allowed for the cyberattack and the leak of sensitive personal data.

The Lyon Firm is still accepting St, Joseph’s data breach claims and is actively involved in numerous data privacy cases. Joe Lyon has experience filing data security claims on behalf of plaintiffs nationwide.

St. Joseph’s Data Breach Lawsuit

St. Joseph’s Candler Health System data breach victims are now exposed to a heightened and imminent risk of fraud and identity theft. With the above personal information, criminals can commit a variety of crimes such as file fraudulent unemployment claims, open new financial accounts, take out loans, file fraudulent tax returns, or use information in future targeted phishing attacks.

To remedy the situation, class members must now and in the future closely monitor their financial accounts to guard against identity theft and fraud, and pay for credit monitoring services, credit freezes, credit reports, or other protective measures to deter and detect identity theft.
