Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Simon Eye Associates for failing to safeguard sensitive patient data in a series of data breaches throughout 2021. The data breaches were caused by unauthorized access to employee email accounts that contained the personal information of over 144,000 Simon Eye Associates patients in facilities across Delaware and Pennsylvania. Examples of the types of data exposed in the leaks include names, dates of birth, addresses, social security numbers, medical records, lab results, diagnoses, medications, health insurance information, and dates of services.
Some of the Simon Eye facilities connected with the data breaches include:
• Simon Eye West Chester
• Simon Eye North Wilmington
• Simon Eye Wilmington
• Simon Eye Pike Creek
• Simon Eye Newark
• Simon Eye Bear
• Simon Eye Middletown
• Simon Eye Dover
• Simon Eye Milford
• Simon Eye Rehobooth
Cybercriminals commonly use information obtained from data breaches to commit a wide variety of identity theft. For example, in previous data breaches, individuals have had to pay out of pocket for credit monitoring or for new fraudulent charges. Individuals may have noticed suspicious credit or banking activity, disrupted medical care, or medical appointments fraudulently created, canceled, and/or billed in their name.
