JMW Solicitors re-launches successful website feature


Award-winning law firm JMW Solicitors has re-launched its highly successful online personal injury compensation calculator with one of its own employees, Lee McGovern, contributing his likeness as part of an overhaul to update the calculator. 

The feature helps JMW’s website visitors to determine how much compensation they may be entitled to for their injuries and is the second-most visited page of the JMW website. 

Lee, head of the new business team, was chosen to be the ‘face’ of the new calculator after the JMW team felt that the previous one needed to be updated for 2015.  Updates include a feature that allows visitors to highlight specific body parts that may have sustained injury, when scrolling over them. 

Lee said: “When I learnt that the team were looking for a new model for the compensation calculator and were struggling to find something suitable, I was happy to help out.  I deal with new enquiries for the personal injury team on a daily basis, so I was keen to get involved and help to ensure that our clients are getting an excellent service from the off.  Being a model for the day, being directed to stand in several different poses until we got the right one for the site, was certainly a different experience, but it’s all part of the job.”

Manchester digital agency, I-com, were engaged to provide design and development of the new version.  They delivered the project on behalf of JMW Solicitors, working sensitively to ensure that the feature was made more user friendly and easier to navigate, on both desktop and mobile devices.  The update also includes a streamlined ‘find out more’ area for visitors to access, in instances where there is more than one type of injury associated with a body part. 

Mark Webster, project manager, I-com, said: “Working with JMW Solicitors on this project has been really enjoyable, and it’s gratifying to see that work come to fruition.  We know how important the compensation calculator is to JMW’s Personal Injury team and the clients it serves, and therefore how vital it was for us to get the overhaul right.  We have delivered a solution that retains the unique feel of the original, whilst offering an even easier-to-use interface for visitors.”  

Chris Sutton, partner and joint head of the personal injury department, said: “We’re really proud of the success of this feature on the JMW website and it’s great to know it’s helping a lot of people understand the sort of compensation award they may be entitled to.  Refreshing it to be even easier to use is something we felt was very important. 

“It’s a pleasure to be able to get Lee to be our model for the calculator as, not only does he represent JMW’s first point of contact for new clients, but because he also represents a lot of the values we advocate.  He’s willing to be in our clients’ corner and ensure that they have a proper understanding of the claims process from the start.  Lee has also been with the firm for over 10 years, so it’s great to see a well-known face in the firm, become a well-known face out of it.”
