Migliaccio & Rathod LLP, based in Washington DC, is investigating medical, home and auto insurance companies for data breaches that compromised the sensitive information of hundreds of thousands of customers. For example, dental insurance company Healthplex, Inc. reported that a data breach affected 76,262 of its customers in April 2022. These breaches occur when companies receive and process sensitive customer information during adjudication of insurance claims or when clients purchase insurance services through their employer or doctor’s office.
Following a data breach, customers often receive a letter disclosing the problem. Sometimes a remedy such as credit monitoring is offered for a short period of time. The remedy – if there is one – is often inadequate because it provides no compensation for personal losses, the time lost dealing with the issue, and the long-term risk posed by confidential information such as social security numbers. and other sensitive financial information in the hands of cybercriminals.
Lawyers for Migliaccio & Rathod LLP have filed a number of privacy-based class action lawsuits, including some against insurance companies, seeking to provide much greater relief to customers who suffered a data breach. Further information about the firm’s data privacy cases is available on the firm’s website at www.classlawdc.com.
