Accidents at Work

More reasons to choose us  

I instructed Ashmans Solicitors to recover all of my heads of claim including my vehicle damage, personal injury, and my out-of-pocket expenses. I would like to say the following about Ashmans Solicitors: I had never been involved in an accident before and was initially weary of instructing a law firm but I was glad that I instructed Ashmans. They were professional and courteous throughout the whole claims process. They were able to promptly and efficiently deal with my claim. They did not devalue my claim and they recovered in excess of £10,000 for my soft tissue injuries. I would not hesitate in recommending my family and friends to Ashmans Solicitors. God forbid but if I am ever involved in any other accidents in the future I would definitely return to Ashmans for their assistance.
