Patients and former patients of Athens Orthopedic Clinic, P.A. (“Athens Orthopedic”), a provider of comprehensive orthopedic care in Northern Georgia, have brought suit against Athens Orthopedic in connection with the theft of their personal information from Athens Orthopedic’s databases. The data breach impacted over 200,000 persons, and involved patients’ names, addresses, dates of birth and social security numbers. As a result of the data breach, and through no fault of their own, Athens Orthopedic’s patients and former patients’ personal information is now in the public domain.
The GSP lawsuit seeks to require Athens Orthopedic to provide its patients with credit monitoring and identity theft protection, as their private information has been posted publicly and been offered for sale. The lawsuit also seeks to require Athens Orthopedic to reimburse patients who purchased credit monitoring protection or who put a freeze on their accounts after the data breach took place.
Patients and former patients of Athens Orthopedic who received notice that they were victims of the data breach from Athens Orthopedic in August, 2016 may contact Mark Goldman by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 484-342-0700 to discuss any questions you may have. Or, if you have information that might help the case, we are interested in talking to you as well.
