Contact For A FREE Consultation!

equifax data breachMunley Law is currently reviewing claims related to the Equifax data breach. Two Oregon residents have filed a class action lawsuit against Equifax, a major credit reporting agency that was hit by an unprecedented cyber-attack. The massive hack exposed the personal information of as many as 143 million Americans. The lawsuit alleges that Equifax was negligent and failed to protect the personal information of its users. Equifax now faces a multi-billion dollar lawsuit.

What happened?

On September 7, 2017, the company revealed that hackers had gained access to the names, social security numbers, drivers license numbers, and other personal information of millions of consumers in late July.

How do I know if I was affected by the Equifax data breach?

Equifax is one of three major credit reporting agencies. If you have a credit report (which you likely do, if you have applied for a credit card or a loan) then chances are that you may be affected by this breach.

What can I do now?

In light of the breach, some experts recommend placing a freeze on your credit to help prevent fraud, and closely monitor your credit report.

Equifax set up a data breach website for consumers, where consumers can get information on whether they have been affected, and is offering free credit protection service for one year. On Sunday September 10, Equifax issued a statement in response to criticism about the language on their data breach notification site. The company has removed the legal language on the website that would have forced users into arbitration and prevented them from seeking compensation through a class action.”Enrolling in the free credit file monitoring and identity theft protection that we are offering as part of this cybersecurity incident does not waive any rights to take legal action,” their statement says.

Chris Munley promised results, and that’s what I got. He was very compassionate and he answered every question I had about my personal injury case. When we couldn’t settle with the insurance company out of court, he was a fighter in the courtroom. Needless to say, we won and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Patrick, a Personal Injury Client

Julia Munley and Munley Law have been absolutely awesome to work with. After wasting years with another firm working on my case, Munley Law was able to get me the social security disability that I deserved. You walk in to Munley Law and are greeted with a friendly smile and courtesy. They are highly confidential, well organized and extremely knowledgeable about social security disability – they really know what they are doing. They were with me every step of the way, did all of the leg work, and returned calls promptly. They assured me that if we didn’t win, we would keep fighting, because I deserved this. They were professional and courteous, and I had complete trust in them. I highly recommend Munley Law – they will fight on your behalf. Sandy, Social Security Disability Case
