How do I transfer my claim to JMW?
If you’ve made the decision that you’d like JMW to handle your claim, then thank you. Rest assured, your claim is in safe hands, and we will get to work on your case quickly.
The transfer process is very simple. First, we’ll need you to provide us with some information about the law firm previously dealing with your case; who they are, what stage they have taken your case to, or whether they have settled your claim.
Then, we will send you out some paperwork that we’ll need you to sign, confirming you’re happy for us to act for you, and take over your claim. The paperwork will also contain a form that confirms you’re happy to transfer the file of work relating to your claim, from your old firm of solicitors, to us. It is very important that we are in receipt of the file, as it will help us to understand how your former law firm handled your claim, what the issues are on your claim and identify any areas of investigation they have possibly missed. We cannot start any meaningful work on your case without the file from your former law firm, so it really is important that we have those papers.
After that, it’s full steam ahead! We’ll thoroughly check through your file, and start getting you on your way to the compensation you deserve.
