What Can I Get from a Class Action?

While each case is different, lawyers handling the data breach case against Target recently reached a $10 million preliminary settlement agreement with the retailer. The settlement is expected to provide up to $10,000 per claimant.
According to one lawsuit against Home Depot, experts have commented that the breach at Home Depot “may be one of the largest data breaches to ever strike a retailer, even larger than the Target data breach that affected approximately 40 to 70 million people.”
What’s the Lawsuit About?
The class action lawsuit alleges that Home Depot failed to provide reasonable protection to its customers and failed to meet industry standards for processing debit and credit card information. In September 2014, it was reported that over the previous five months, the debit and credit card information of 56 million customers was compromised in a massive data breach. The suit alleges that as a result of the breach, the black market was quickly flooded with the personal information of Home Depot customers, increasing their risk of fraudulent charges and identify theft.
