Data privacy is still the name of the game here at ClassAction.org. So, in this week’s issue of our newsletter, we have another handful of data breaches that have led attorneys to investigate whether the companies involved took proper steps to protect consumers’ sensitive information. Named in those investigations are Desert Physicians Management; Imagine360; and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP. If you got letters from any of these companies about a data incident, you’ll want to keep reading.
Then, attorneys are looking into whether certain Amana ovens have a tendency to overheat to dangerous temperatures due to a defect. Keep reading for the latest, including some new settlements you may be able to claim.
Desert Physicians Management, which provides administrative support services to physicians’ groups, recently announced a data breach that exposed the sensitive information of thousands of its clients’ patients. Specifically, the breach affects patients of Choice Physicians Network/Choice Medical Group, Choice Healthcare Associates and Horizon Valley Medical Group, with exposed information including names, addresses, dates of birth, and health insurance and clinical information. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org believe that the healthcare services company may have failed in its duty to implement cybersecurity measures that would adequately protect patients’ data and are now investigating whether a class action lawsuit can be filed. If you received a letter from Desert Physicians Management saying that your information may have been compromised in a data breach, tell us about it here. You may be able to help get a lawsuit on file.
Imagine360, a company that offers self-funded health insurance plans for employers, announced on June 30 that two file-sharing platforms it used to process health insurance claims had been hacked within days of each other. Files containing the personal and medical information of thousands of its clients’ employees were reportedly copied from both platforms in late January 2023, with exposed information including names, medical information, Social Security numbers and more. Attorneys are now looking into whether a class action can be filed claiming the company failed to maintain adequate data security measures. A lawsuit could allow victims of the breaches to be compensated for any harm experienced as a result of their information being exposed – including lost time and money spent responding to the breach. If you received a data breach letter from Imagine360, head over to this page for more information.
Our settlements page is always being updated. Have you checked to see if you're covered by any open settlements? You can also check out the latest settlements as they happen by following us on Twitter.
You may be eligible for compensation from this FTC settlement if you got a NetSpend card between January 1, 2010 and August 31, 2016, didn't activate the card before August 31, 2016 and had fees deducted from your card balance.
The last breach covered in today’s issue affects tens of thousands of people who were enrolled in a certain vision benefits plan. Specifically, it’s believed that highly sensitive data (including birthdates and Social Security numbers) of CHI Vision Plan participants was leaked through a security incident involving Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP – a law firm that was previously retained by the vision benefits plan and therefore had the now-breached information on hand. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP took proper care to protect consumer information and, if not, whether a class action lawsuit could be filed. If you received a notice from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP about a data breach affecting vision plan participants, learn more about the investigation and what you can do right here.
Typically, a hot oven is a good thing, but for certain Amana customers, the outside of the ranges have reportedly become so hot that some of the components have melted and caused burns. Indeed, owners of the oven/stove combo have complained that the exterior parts of the appliance, including the stovetop, sides and glass door, are prone to reaching dangerously high temperatures – and now, attorneys are looking into whether a class action can be filed over a possible defect. Before that can happen, however, the attorneys need to speak with anyone who has been having similar issues with this particular appliance – that is, the Amana 30-inch gas range with “Easy Touch Electronic Controls” and model number AGR5330BAW. If this is something you’ve experienced, learn more about the investigation and share your story right here.
