Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Air Methods data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
Medical helicopter company Air Methods has reported that over 34,000 individuals' personal and medical information may have been exposed during a data security incident.
According to a notice on the company's website, a laptop was stolen from an Air Methods billing office on November 9, 2023. The company promptly reported the theft to the police, but the laptop has not been recovered. After further investigation, it was discovered that the stolen laptop may contain sensitive patient information. The data varied for each patient but could potentially include names, dates of service, the Air Methods reference number, contact details, insurance information, and diagnosis/treatment information. Some patients' Social Security numbers were also found in the documents.
Starting from January 12, 2024, Air Methods began notifying individuals whose information was identified in the documents found on the stolen laptop. The company is in the process of reviewing more files and expects to continue sending out notification letters to affected individuals through February 2024.
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 Air Methods to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
