In a press release dated May 6, 2015 Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan announced filing a lawsuit against FileFax Inc. for exposing thousands of patient medical records containing sensitive personal information.
The lawsuit alleges that FileFax Inc. failed to protect sensitive patient information including name, date of birth, social security numbers, and other info, after hundreds of files containing complete medical records were discovered discarded in a dumpster outside of the company's Northbrook office.
The lawsuit alleges FileFax failed to provide safe, secure, and proper collection, retention, storage and destruction of records. In some instances, the lawsuit alleges, FileFax disposed of Suburban Lung records in an unlocked garbage dumpster outside of its facility that was accessible to the public.
The lawsuit alleges violation of the state's Personal Information Act, which ensures consumers' personal information is protected in Illinois, and the state's Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act.
