Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. Investigating Potential Claims on Behalf of Victims of Attack of One of Krystal’s Payment Processing Systems Used at Certain Krystal Restaurants

Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is investigating potential claims on behalf of victims of a security incident that, according to the Krystal Company, “may have involved payment cards processed by a payment processing system used at certain [Krystal fast-food] restaurants between July through September 2019.”

If you believe you were a victim of Krystal’s data breach and have questions or concerns about Kehoe Law Firm’s data breach investigation or potential legal claims, please contact Kehoe Law Firm, P.C., Michael Yarnoff, Esq., (215) 792-6676, Ext. 804, [email protected][email protected].  

Komando.com reported (“Check your credit card! Fast food chain breached”) that “[t]he South’s version of White Castle is dealing with a data breach. The fast-food company is still trying to determine how many people were affected, but it does know payment information was stolen.”  Further, Komando.com reported that “Krystal, the White Castle of the South, announced payment data was breached at a number of its restaurants. In a press release, the company admitted determining how many people were affected by the breach is difficult because its 342 locations use various payment processes.”

The Krystal Company’s “Notice of Potential Payment Card Incident” contained a list of its restaurant locations which might have been impacted by the payment card incident and stated, among other things, that “[a]lthough its investigation is in its early stages, [Krystal has] learned that the security incident may have involved payment cards processed by a payment processing system used at certain restaurants between July through September 2019.”

Krystal’s FAQs about the data attack stated, among other things, that the “security incident may have impacted payment cards, including debit and credit card numbers,” and Krystal is “still determining specific locations and dates for each restaurant involved in the attack.”

Examples of the type of relief sought by data privacy class actions, include, but are not limited to, reimbursement of identity theft losses and of out-of-pocket costs paid by data breach victims for protective measures such as credit monitoring services, credit reports, and credit freezes; compensation for time spent responding to the breach; imposition of credit monitoring services and identity theft insurance, paid for by the defendant company; and improvements to the defendant company’s data security systems.

Data privacy class actions are brought on a contingent-fee basis; thus, plaintiffs and the class members do not pay out-of-pocket attorney’s fees or litigation costs.  Subject to court approval, attorney’s fees and litigation costs are derived from the recovery obtained for the class.
