CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Goldman Scarlato & Penny, P.C. announces an increased focus on Data Breach and Identity Theft litigation.
Hardly a day goes by without a report of yet another serious cyber-attack or data breach on an insurance company, a chain store, a health care provider, or a financial institution. These data breaches of companies’ computer networks are often easily accomplished. The thieves seem to be ahead of the companies in whose hands private information has been entrusted.
These data breaches are incredibly expensive for the companies impacted. But the ramifications for these companies’ customers, clients, and patients is often far more serious.
Cyber thieves infiltrating the networks of financial institutions and health care providers find a treasure trove of personal information. Bank files contain customers’ names, dates of birth, social security numbers, and important financial information. Health care providers also maintain highly sensitive personal information about their patients’ medications and medical conditions. Unfortunately, these service providers have not taken the necessary steps to keep people’s private data safe.
Our firm has gained considerable experience bringing claims against companies that fail to protect your private data. Lawyers from Goldman Scarlato & Penny, P.C. serve in leadership positions in many of the largest data breach and identity theft cases to date, including class actions against Target, Inc., Community Health Systems, Inc., and Intuit, Inc., whose software, Turbo Tax, was used by cyber criminals to file fraudulent tax returns.
Our lawyers also represent victims of data breaches in class actions against health insurer Anthem, Inc., which may be the largest data breach case involving the theft of social security numbers to date, Premera Blue Cross, where the private information of over 8 million subscribers was stolen, Medical Informatics Engineering, Inc., a software company in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, United Shore Financial Services, LLC, a Michigan-based financial services company, and Athens Orthopedic Clinics in Georgia.
