National Health Services Ltd. and Sunniva Inc. Class Action Lawsuit

Diamond & Diamond Lawyers LLP is filing a class action lawsuit against Natural Health Services Ltd. and parent company Sunniva Inc., as a result of a data breach of sensitive, personal and confidential patient information.

Natural Health Service acts as a conduit between physicians and patients seeking medical cannabis for treating various ailments. The organization’s parent company, Sunniva, operates various cannabis subsidiaries in both the United Statesand Canada.

The data breach, which according to the defendant occurred “between December 4, 2018 and January 7, 2019“, was only notified to affected Plaintiffs within the last calendar week.

“What is more integral than the preservation of our health information?” said Jeremy Diamond, Manager Partner at Diamond and Diamond Lawyers. “All individuals that filled out these online forms could be affected by this egregious breach.”

The defendant acknowledges the following patient information was disclosed within the breach:

  • Diagnostic results
  • Health care numbers
  • Medical information including diagnostic results, medical conditions, allergies, encounter notes with clinics and doctors, referrals, forms and completed questionnaires
  • Specific identifying information connected to the above, including name, age, gender, address, phone number

The Representative Plaintiff for the class, Adele Worley-Burns, stated, “I was informed by my lawyer that this kind of a breach could possibly impact my insurance rates, ability to travel, and subject me to possible fraud. I feel violated on a variety of levels.”

Diamond and Diamond Lawyers LLP believes that thousands of people may have been impacted by this breach and are potentially entitled to seek compensation. Any individual who has provided any personal information to Natural Health Services is encouraged to contact the firm immediately by calling 1-800-567-HURT (4878) or using the contact form above.
