Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Acadia Health (Just Kids Dental) data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
On August 2, 2023, Just Kids Dental's computer systems and network were targeted and breached by a malicious individual who gained access to patient and employee files. The personal information that may have been compromised varied depending on the individual's relationship with Just Kids Dental. For patients, it potentially included sensitive details such as their names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, birth dates, Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers, health insurance policy information, treatment information (including radiographic images), medical record numbers, account numbers and health conditions. Patients' parents or guardians may have had their names, addresses, emails, phone numbers, birth dates, Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers and health insurance policy information exposed.
Current and former employees' names, Social Security numbers and local state and federal licensing information may have also been compromised.
If your information was exposed in the breach, attorneys want to hear from you. You may be able to start a class action lawsuit to recover compensation for loss of privacy, time spent dealing with the breach, out-of-pocket costs, and more.
A successful case could also force Just Kids Dental to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
