Keller Grover LLP Investigating Tandem Diabetes Care

Share Article

Keller Grover LLP is investigating recent reports that Tandem Diabetes Care suffered a large data breach involving certain patients’ personal information, including sensitive information such as patient names and contact information, Social Security numbers, information related to patient use of Tandem products or services, and clinical data. According to a March 2020 letter sent to affected individuals, the email accounts of several Tandem employees were subject to a “phishing” scheme that caused the data breach.

“Medical information is considered to be among the most personal and private of information under California law,” says Keller Grover LLP attorney Eric A. Grover. “For that reason, healthcare providers are required to give patients timely notice of data breaches and the negligent release and disclosure of medical information can, under certain circumstances, give rise to claims by affected individuals for money damages.”

Similar medical data breaches involving the failure to properly secure medical information have given rise to class action lawsuits. Recently, for example, St. Joseph Health Systems finalized a class action lawsuit settlement valued at over $30 million involving St. Joseph’s alleged failure to properly secure its network, allowing patient information to become publicly accessible on the internet.

If you have any information about the Tandem Diabetes Care data breach or are a California resident that has been affected by the data breach and have questions, contact Keller Grover’s attorneys at 888-535-5291 or by email at info@kellergrover.com.

Keller Grover will not charge you for reviewing your information and all information that you provide to Keller Grover in the process of seeking legal advice will be held strictly confidential.
