Have you been affected by the Equifax data breach and now you want to take action? If so, then you're probably wondering how can you sue Equifax? Let's briefly discuss what your options are.
One way to sue the firm is to bring forth an individual lawsuit. However, this will cost you a bit of money and you will have to prove that your identity was stolen because of the Equifax breach and you have to probe that you were hurt financially by it. These types of cases can be difficult to actually win, but if you do have proof, then go ahead and bring forth an individual lawsuit.
Another option is to wait to be contacted by attorneys who decide to pursue a class action lawsuit. If you were to receive money from a class action, then you would likely forfeit your right to claim additional monetary damages. Furthermore, the money you receive from a class action lawsuit wouldn't be significant.
