Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Lifeline data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
Lifeline, a Massachusetts-based company that provides medical alert systems, began notifying consumers on September 7, 2023 that their personal information was exposed in a data breach it experienced between July 27 and August 6, 2022. According to Lifeline’s notice letter, those affected may include subscribers, individuals identified as a “point of contact” for a subscriber, and current and former employees and their family members.
It’s been reported that the hack—which was first detected on August 6 of last year—compromised names, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, medical information, health insurance information and more.
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 Lifeline to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
