Equifax Class Action Lawyers

The attorneys of Chandler McNulty LLP have filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of consumers whose personal-identifying information was compromised in the recent cyber breach of the credit-reporting giant, Equifax.

In the July cyber-attack, criminals were able to gain access to the personal information of 143 million people in the U.S., which is about 44% of the population. As consumers, we have a right to expect that the companies that hold our private and personal information will take the necessary steps to protect that data. If a company like Equifax is negligent in their protection of your data, you have the right to hold them accountable for their actions.

The Equifax class action lawyers of Chandler McNulty LLP believe that your personal information should be protected at all costs, and companies have a responsibility to keep you safe from hackers who would like to use your data to commit fraud and financial crimes. We are not afraid to stand up for people just like you against the large credit-reporting bureaus like Equifax, so contact us today to see how you can join other people just like you to take a stand against malicious cyber-attacks. Call us at (713) 997-8310, fill out a contact form on our site, or chat with us live to find out how we can help you.

My Information Was Exposed in the Equifax Breach. Do I Need a Lawyer?

If you are one of the 143 million people in the U.S. whose personal information was exposed in the Equifax cyber-breach, you may be eligible to take legal action against the company and can hold it responsible for its negligence. The legal process can be complicated and difficult to navigate without an experienced attorney on your side, so it is important to hire a legal team that you trust to handle your claim.

For decades, the attorneys of Chandler McNulty LLP have sought justice on behalf of individuals who have been harmed by major corporations. We have helped people who were exposed to asbestos and developed mesothelioma, we have defended those who were hurt by defective pharmaceuticals or medical devices, and have fought tirelessly to recover the just and fair compensation that our clients are owed. We have experience taking on the “big guys,” and we’re prepared to do the same on behalf of individuals whose private data is now in the hands of hostile cyber-criminals due to the negligent actions of Equifax.

What Type of Information Was Leaked?

Millions of Americans’ identifying data was exposed in this leak, and Equifax needs to make it right. Hackers can easily monetize this personal information in the form of identity theft, financial crime, and other nefarious actions. Identifying information that was released may include:

  • Full Names
  • Dates of Birth
  • Social Security Numbers
  • Addresses
  • Credit Cards
  • Drivers’ Licenses

We believe that Equifax was aware of the technical safeguards that it should have had in place to protect its customers’ data properly but failed to implement or maintain them in its efforts to save money and increase profits. When companies fail to invest in proper security, it is the consumers who are ultimately put at risk.
