If you were mailed a notice by New London Hospital regarding a data incident that occurred on or about July 30, 2020, you may be eligible for compensation and credit monitoring.
A court authorized this notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against New London Hospital Association, Inc. d/b/a New London Hospital and Newport Health Center (“New London Hospital”) relating to the potential compromise of private information of current and/or former patients of New London Hospital on or about July 30, 2020 (the “Data Incident”). New London Hospital denies all of the claims and says it did not do anything wrong. This class settlement has been preliminarily approved by the court.
The Settlement provides payments to people who submit valid claims for lost time, out-of-pocket expenses, statutory benefits, and/or charges that were incurred and plausibly arose from the Data Incident, and for other extraordinary unreimbursed monetary losses. The Settlement also provides for two years of credit monitoring services. Your legal rights are affected regardless of whether you do or do not act. Read this notice carefully.
All Settlement Class Members will be provided access to three bureau (3B) credit monitoring services for a period of two years from the Effective Date of the Settlement without the need to submit a Claim Form.
The Settlement also provides two types of payments to people who submit valid claims: 1) reimbursement of up to $500.00 for documented out-of-pocket losses, a statutory benefit of $125.00 and/or up to five hours of attested to lost time at $20 per hour that resulted from the Data Incident; and 2) reimbursement of up to $5,000.00 for documented extraordinary losses arising from misuse or fraud which were more likely than not caused by the Data Incident.
You must file a Claim Form to receive one or more of the cash payments provided by the settlement. You can file a claim online at this website, www.NHLdatasettlement.com, download a Claim Form and mail it, or you may call 1-866-742-4955 and ask that a Claim Form be mailed to you. The last day to postmark or file a claim online is January 8, 2023.
Your legal rights are affected even if you do nothing.
Read this Notice carefully.
