Law firm JMW triumphant at national awards

25/11/2011

The Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence teams at Manchester-based law firm JMW Solicitors have strengthened their reputation further after claiming a prestigious national award.

The teams were the winners in the Claimant Personal Injury Team of the Year category, in the national Personal Injury Awards after having ongoing success across a broad spectrum of high value cases and impressing the judging panel with client initiatives, dedication to welfare and development of staff and contribution to the legal community.

Eddie Jones, JMW clinical negligence solicitor and head of JMW’s Clinical Negligence department, commented: “We are extremely pleased that the success of our teams has been recognised with this award.

“The partners and solicitors within both departments are highly experienced and this award pays tribute to their hard work and the dedication we show to our clients. The competition in the category was tough, so to have emerged victorious is an accolade indeed.”

A team from JMW Solicitors collected their award at a ceremony held at the Riverbank Plaza Hotel, London, on Thursday 24 November in front of an audience of more than 600 guests from the industry.

JMW’s Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence teams have achieved settlements totalling £75 million between them over the past three years, and have been named among the top 10 law firms in the North West in industry bibles, the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners.

This month, the Clinical Negligence team achieved its highest damages of £6.56 million for a seven-year-old boy who was left brain damaged after being starved of oxygen at birth.  Meanwhile the Personal Injury team has achieved notable wins for clients who have contracted mesothelioma after exposure to asbestos whilst at work and also several substantial awards for victims of serious road traffic accidents and accidents within the construction industry.

The teams offer a full range of services for clinical negligence and personal injury cases, and are well equipped to handle complex and catastrophic claims.
