We realise that often this can be a painful process but our staff will treat you with nothing but empathy, and all of our calls are confidential. Your adviser will then tell you if your injury means you’re eligible to make a compensation claim, and if so talk you through the compensation process. If you then decide you want to go ahead then your adviser will sign your case to our solicitor in Otley. If you don’t wish to proceed, then that’s fine you are under no obligation to do so.
Q. What happens during the claim process, is it difficult?
A. Not at all, your solicitor will take care of everything for you, it is quite likely that your claim will be dealt with over the phone, there will be no to-and-fro to the office of our solicitor in Otley.

Q. What can I claim for?
A. You may be entitled to compensation for any injury or illness you have suffered in the past three years, so long as it wasn’t your fault.
