Jet-set for success: JMW's holiday team expands


Leading Manchester law firm JMW Solicitors has appointed another lawyer to its growing holiday claims team, associate Natasha Ross. 

Natasha, who qualified as a legal executive in 2007, joined the team from Slater & Gordon, and acts on behalf of claimants who have suffered an injury or illness whilst abroad. 

Michael Walker, solicitor and head of JMW’s holiday claims team, said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome Natasha to the team.  She brings with her a great deal of experience from her previous firm and is already proving to be a valuable asset.  I’m looking forward to being able to work with her to ensure we can best serve our clients. 

“Since we established the team earlier this year, we’ve noticed a steady and growing influx in the number of people we handle queries from, who may wish to make a claim with us.  We’ve had a particular surge in the number of food poisoning cases we’re seeing, with tourists wanting to be able to secure recompense for having their holiday ruined as a result of the hotel’s failure to follow basic standards of hygiene.”  

Since May, the team has taken on over 300 new claims from individuals who have suffered an injury or illness whilst abroad.  Almost a third of those cases originate from Egypt, with Turkey, Tunisia and Spain proving to be the next most common countries when it comes to tourists who’ve suffered an illness or accident and wish to make a claim. 

Natasha commented: “I was initially drawn to JMW because it has an excellent reputation and is well-established within the personal injury market.  The firm appeared to me to have an ambitious but friendly attitude, and I’m pleased to say that my first impressions have been correct. 

“Client care is something I’m very passionate about and this team’s commitment to that is second to none.  It’s been very satisfying to be able to come into the team and get to grips with a wide range of clients and their claims.” 

JMW Solicitors’ holiday claims team deals with a range of claims including road traffic accidents that have occurred abroad, slips, trips and food poisoning on package holidays.  They can be contacted on , via twitter @jmwholidayteam or on Facebook; .
