MAPFRE Security Incident: What Happened?
Between July 1 and July 2, 2023, an unknown party gained access to certain consumer information via MAPFRE’s Massachusetts online quoting platform, according to the notice.
Driver’s license numbers were reportedly exposed in the breach, with MAPFRE adding that vehicle information, including makes, models, years and vehicle identification numbers (VINs), may have also been accessed.
Driver’s license numbers are highly sensitive because they can be used to submit fraudulent claims for unemployment benefits and other forms of identity theft. Reportedly, 266,142 Massachusetts residents are affected by the breach.
How Could a Class Action Lawsuit Help?
A class action lawsuit has the potential to provide consumers with the chance to seek compensation for:
Lost time spent responding to the breach (reviewing credit reports, obtaining a copy of your driving record, running background checks on yourself, addressing fraudulent uses of your information, etc.)
Refunds for out-of-pocket losses resulting from the breach, such as the cost of credit reports
