DATA BREACH ALERT: Medicare Recipients

Call Billy at (813) 774-1416 to see if you may be entitled to up to $25,000 for being a part of this case.

You may be entitled to up to $25,000 if you are the first person to help us investigate and stop a data breach. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a data breach that hit the corporate network of federal contractor Maximus may have exposed your personal information if you are a Medicare recipient. The breach may affect approximately 8 to 10 million people.

A data breach occurs when sensitive or confidential information is accessed, stolen or used without authorization. In many cases, this can result in identity theft, financial loss and other serious consequences for affected individuals. While the breached information varies depending on the individual, it may include your name, Social Security number, protected health information, and other personally identifiable information. Data breaches are very serious and courts, like us, want to stop them immediately. It appears a bad actor stole personal information from Maximus.

If you help us stop this breach, you could be entitled to an incentive award by the court, which typically happens when we are the first to file the case. With our last two class actions, the plaintiffs were awarded $15,000 each. Last year our client and all the other class action members in a data breach were awarded up to $25,000.

At The Consumer Protection Firm, we’re committed to helping people understand the legal implications of data breaches and the role of consumer protection in mitigating their effects.

Under state and federal law, businesses have a legal obligation to protect the personal information of their customers, which includes implementing reasonable security measures to safeguard data and notifying customers in the event of a breach. Failure to meet these obligations can result in significant legal and financial consequences, including lawsuits, regulatory fines and damage to the company's reputation. Our experienced attorneys work tirelessly to maximize your compensation and protect your future.
