Our attorneys can fight for your rights when your data is compromised.

What Are Cyber Cases?

Data breaches in the U.S. are on the rise. It’s no longer a question of “if” but “when” you might find yourself affected by a data breach. 

From large corporations to small businesses, no entity is immune to the risks posed by cyber-attacks. These breaches can expose sensitive personal data like names, addresses, social security numbers, protected health information, and even financial information. Victims often face the following:

  • Identity theft
  • Financial losses
  • Emotional distress

Knowing what to do if the unfortunate happens can make all the difference in protecting your identity and peace of mind.

Hiring An Attorney For a Cyber Case

Navigating data breaches can be a complex and overwhelming experience. Understanding your legal rights and options may be crucial in such situations. While taking immediate steps to protect your data is essential, seeking legal recourse can also be important. If you are a victim of a data breach, we recommend that you contact an attorney.

Working With Talbot, Carmouche & Marcello on Your Cyber Case

A data breach can have a significant impact on your life. Fortunately, there are legal actions you may be able to take to address the issue.

  • Filing a Lawsuit – To file a successful lawsuit, you must prove that the breach was caused by negligence or malicious intent on the part of the company responsible for safeguarding your data. This can include showing that they failed to implement or follow adequate data security measures, properly encrypt sensitive information, or notify affected individuals.
  • Reporting to Government Agencies – The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and state attorneys general are responsible for enforcing data privacy laws and regulations. By reporting the breach, you can help hold companies accountable for failing to protect consumers and consumer data adequately.
  • Opting Out of Arbitration Clauses – Companies often have arbitration clauses in their terms, meaning customers must resolve disputes through arbitration instead of in court. These clauses often prevent individuals from participating in class-action lawsuits. However, some states allow consumers to opt out of these clauses within a certain time frame after agreeing to the contract terms. By opting out, you may retain your right to file a lawsuit against the company in the event of a data breach.

An experienced attorney at Talbot, Carmouche & Marcello can assess your situation to determine if you have a claim.

Common Cyber Cases

With the ubiquity and importance of data in today’s digital age, cybercrime is more common than ever. We understand the complexities of cyber law and are experienced in navigating the details necessary to build a sound case. But before getting to that point, the first step is understanding if you are in fact a victim of a cybercrime. Some of the most common types include:

  • Data Breaches – A data breach occurs when an unauthorized party gains access to sensitive information. Examples include a bank or medical facility being compromised by a third party that obtains the confidential information these institutions may have regarding you, your family or your assets.
  • Identity Theft – Identity theft is when an individual gains sensitive, personal information and uses that for fraudulent purposes. Examples include someone using your Social Security Number or opening a bank account in your name.
  • Online Fraud – Online fraud is when a website or individual online uses deceptive practices to obtain sensitive information. Examples include unreputable websites pretending to sell products at a good deal to obtain your information, or emails from someone pretending to be someone else and asking for help.
  • Intellectual Property Theft – Intellectual property theft is the unauthorized use or reproduction of copyrighted material, trademarks or trade secrets. Examples include someone selling t-shirts with a design you own the rights to, or making a knock-off version of a product that you have proprietary rights to.
