Consumer Privacy and Data Breach Injuries
The legal landscape surrounding consumer privacy and data security is increasingly complex, from theft, loss and unauthorized use of personal information to data security compliance, counseling, health care privacy, HIPAA compliance and more. Without question, data breaches can compromise individuals’ personal information, putting them at risk for privacy and financial injuries. Yet, when consumers’ personal information is accessed or used as a result of intentional or reckless behavior, the person, company or organization storing it may be accountable.
As national trial lawyers and litigators, the team at the Harman Law Firm represents victims of privacy violations and data breach harm, fighting for the right compensation for those affected. In turn, we work tirelessly on many fronts, with advice regarding claims, litigation and investigation into your claim to ensure that those accountable are brought to justice.
While privacy and data breach “harm” continues to be a moving target, we believe that every person deserves the right to justice if their private information has been violated, misused or sold to third-party companies.

Invasion Of Privacy Attorneys
An invasion of privacy can be devastating, shocking and can cause those affected to feel vulnerable and powerless. While computers have revolutionized the world of communication and business, access to critical information is at an all-time high.
In the state of Georgia, there are typically four types of invasion of privacy claims:
- Intrusion or seclusion: When someone invades another’s private space physically, or if they use a video camera or recording device.
- Public disclosure of private information: When your private information (medical records, financial records, etc.) is released without your consent, and the disclosure of your information is outrageous to a public sense.
- False light: When negative statements are made about you that affect your reputation or by revealing facts about you that are not true, as a way to misrepresent you.
- Misappropriation of name or likeness: When your picture, image, voice or name is used without your consent, and it is used for a profit.
There’s no doubt—when someone invades your privacy, they are infringing upon your fundamental rights and personal security. Even so, invasion of privacy laws are increasingly complex. This is why an experienced and trusted invasion of privacy attorney is needed to ensure that your rights are protected.
The attorneys at the Harman Law Firm understand that invasion of privacy cases have extremely short limits. In turn, evidence against you could be destroyed if action is not taken immediately. This is why you are encouraged to act quickly.
