The Lyon Firm is investigating data breach claims on behalf of patients and clients of the 20/20 Eye Care Network. Individuals and federal authorities received notification in May 2021 that data entrusted to 20/20 Eye Care Network may have been compromised. Personal information affected by the data breach may include the following:
- Social Security Numbers
- Member Identification Numbers
- Dates of Birth
- Health Insurance Information
This personal information, or protected health information (PHI), may have been accessed and stolen during a data breach more than four months ago, in January 2021. It has been reported that over 3 million individuals have been affected by this data breach incident.
The Lyon Firm is experienced in handling class action data theft and data privacy claims for plaintiffs nationwide. Victims of data breach and personal data theft incidents have a right to seek compensation, and ensure that their privacy is protected now and forever.
What should you do after a data breach?
The Lyon Firm offers free, confidential consultations, and is open to discuss your case at length. 20/20 Eye Care clients are being offered free credit monitoring services, identity restoration services, and fraud consultation, though attorneys say that further compensation is justified.
How did the data breach occur?
In January, 20/20 Eye Care confirmed suspicious network activity in its Amazon Web Services account. After a review and investigation, it was concluded that data was potentially removed and leaked data could have potentially included information about health plan members.
Regardless of the hacking details, companies and private healthcare entities have a duty to protect your personal information, and any violation of your privacy may be grounds for legal action. Call now to discuss filing a new lawsuit or join an existing data beach class action.
