Oftentimes, investors feel comfortable enough with their broker to the point where they no longer keep paperwork. They often throw out some or all of the paperwork involving their account. Unfortunately, if things go wrong and investors are victims of broker misconduct, they may worry that they can no longer do anything without having the necessary paperwork.
One of the common misconceptions we have noticed from investors is that they feel they cannot take legal action if they don’t have the paperwork regarding their case. This isn’t always true and it may be possible to regain the paperwork. At Meyer Wilson, our securities lawyers provide a free case evaluation in order to discuss the details of your situation. During this time, our securities and investment fraud analysts listen to your case and determine if you have the right to file a claim. From there, we have the power to request copies of the paperwork that you threw away.
We may be able to retain paperwork including your account overview, various transactions and more. These can be used on your behalf as evidence at the FINRA arbitration.
The paperwork may show mishandling of your funds or other signs of potential scams or bad advice in ways to benefit the broker or brokerage firm. When these individuals or agencies work without the best interests of investors in mind, they are violating FINRA regulations and you should be able to hold them accountable for monetary losses.
We have helped numerous investors recover their losses, even when they have first come to us without the related paperwork. You don’t need to have the paperwork in order to speak with us; we’ll take care of that problem if we decide you have a case. We can determine the validity of your claim just by listening to the details of your claim. Call us today to get started.
