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.
Attorney Dave Meyer Explains Whether or Not You Need Your 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.
