Company Insurance Policy May Not Cover All Costs Related to Breach
Oxygen device maker Inogen Inc. is notifying over 30,000 current and former customers after an unauthorized individual reportedly gained access to an employee’s email account that could possibly contain Inogen customers’ personal information. According to multiple reports, the email account was compromised sometime between January 2 and March 14, 2018, and that some non-public financial information may have been leaked as well. Based in Goleta, California, Inogen Inc. makes portable devices that supply oxygen to patients with breathing difficulties and lung diseases.
Although the leaked data doesn’t include payment card information or medical records, a forensics firm hired to investigate the breach discovered that possible information might include customers’ names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, dates of birth, dates of death, Medicare identification numbers, insurance policy information and type of medical equipment used. In addition to hiring the forensics firm, Inogen Inc. said it will provide credit monitoring and an insurance reimbursement policy to assist affected customers, but noted that the insurance policy may not cover the complete costs associated with the possible breach.
Consumers Affected by an Inogen Data Breach May Be Entitled to Compensation
Data breaches can possibly lead to serious problems for those affected, including the loss of personal, financial or health information. When financial information is wrongfully accessed, victims could be required to pay fees for monitoring their credit to ensure their credit score isn’t negatively impacted from the violation. In some cases, data breach victims may need to make sure they don’t become a victim of identity theft and may also have to pay to receive a credit report to check on fraudulent charges.
Victims of data breaches may be entitled to receive compensation for any personal information that may have been compromised, and the responsible party may be liable for financial losses resulting from a data breach. Affected consumers should seek legal counsel from an Inogen data breach lawsuit attorney to get more information about their rights and remedies.
