Clifford Law Offices filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of a mother and her daughter whose privacy and medical information, along with millions of others, was compromised as a result of Advocate Medical Group failing to take proper precautions to protect private data of its patients. Advocate Medical Group, based in Downers Grove, said that its administrative offices in Park Ridge were burglarized in July and four computers were taken containing patients’ names, addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers and other important data including medical diagnoses and insurance information were taken. The lawsuit alleges that Advocate was negligent in failing to use encryption and other basic security measures on behalf of its patients. Patients were informed in September of this alleged event that reportedly is under investigation by police.
