Have you been the victim of identity theft? Was your private information stolen and used to create credit card accounts, which were then used to rack up massive debt that is now in your name? Was your credit card number stolen directly? Many victims of identity theft and credit card fraud believe they have no recourse. They are mistaken.
At Bordas & Bordas, our lawyers have decades of experience handling consumer protection cases in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. We are well versed in the state and federal laws that provide remedies to identity theft victims, including invasion of privacy laws, the Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (GLB), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and more. We have strong record of verdicts and settlements.
Businesses are Responsible for Keeping Your Information Safe
Any business that keeps your personal information is responsible for keeping that information safe. Banks must protect your account information. Online retailers must protect your credit card information. Investment websites must take all necessary steps to keep your personal information out of the hands of hackers. When a business mishandles your information and allows it to fall into the hands of hackers and criminals to commit credit card fraud, that business may be liable for the damage done.
While targeting the individual who actually committed the crime may be impossible, even if that individual is caught, we can file a lawsuit against the business that did not properly protect your personal information. We will seek to recover all of the money lost and more.
Contact us today to speak with a knowledgeable identity theft attorney. We offer free initial consultations in all identity fraud cases and bill on a contingent fee basis — you won't have to pay us a thing unless we obtain results for you.
