Get a FREE Consultation

equifax data breachMunley Law Personal Injury Attorneys 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 represented my dad at a very difficult time with compassion yet in the court room he was the fighter we needed. Chris helped my family during a time of incredible hardship when my dad was hit head on by 2 teenage girls. He took the time to answer all of our questions at any given time when we needed him. He treated my entire family with respect and helped us to get what we deserved. I would recommend Chris Munley to anyone in need of a reliable, determined, and trustworthy attorney.

    About 5 months ago, I had injured my back after lifting a heavy box at work. My employer refused to submit my claim even though the doctor had said the injury was caused by the action. I turned to Caroline Munley for help and I’m glad that I did. She walked me through filing my claim and helped me get the money to pay for my medical bills. I don’t know where I would be without her. Thank you, Ms. Munley! Lisa, a Workers’ Compensation Client
