Medical Device Data Theft | Health Data Privacy Lawyer
Why are Data Privacy Cases important?
Without personal data privacy violation class actions, large corporate defendants would be able to cause small amounts of harm over a large group of individuals without any risk of monetary penalty. By holding companies accountable for safely storing your personal information, every consumer will have more control over how their data is used in the future.
Healthcare Data Privacy Lawsuit FAQs
Personal health information that is vulnerable to data privacy breaches includes:
- Health insurance numbers
- Diagnoses, treatments, and prescription information
- Financial information like bank and credit card data
- DNA data
- Biometric data
Medical device connectivity carries data breach risks, and when hackers gain access to connected medical devices or a larger network of health data, this personal information may forever be compromised.
Individuals whose medical data has been compromised, healthcare providers, and even regulatory authorities may file such lawsuits, depending on the circumstances. Your lawyer will investigate your situation to identify all of the potentially liable parties you can personally file claims against.
Manufacturers can be held liable if they are found negligent in securing their devices, especially if the breach was foreseeable or preventable. Under current privacy laws, the agency or organization that is storing user data is responsible for data breaches and will pay any fines or damages that are the result of legal action.
Evidence of a medical data breach may include records of unauthorized access, data breach notifications, and forensic analysis of affected devices or systems.
