Senior Associate Solicitor, Serious Injury Claims
I have been dealing with Charlotte Rankin regarding my injury at work claim and have found Charlotte and Simpson Millar to be a very professional Company. Charlotte has been very supportive and caring in what has been a very stressful time in my life for me and my family, as I cannot currently work, due to my ongoing injury and treatment. Charlotte always replies promptly and keeps me up to date with what is happening with my case. Mr Tottenham
I have been really happy with the treatment I got from Simpson Millar... from the 1st phone call until my case was finished with, they have been informative, helpful & really good in understanding my health issues. I do feel they have gone above & beyond my expectations. I can never thank them enough!!!Anon
Could not be happier. The team heading up my situation were both helpful and on point in regards to updates and in general. I had regular contact either through emails or phone calls, and when I did have questions, they were dealt with normally within the hour. I could not have asked for a better service and would recommend this firm to ABSOLUTELY everyone.Darren
In June 2018, I suffered a severe injury from a fall in the community, for which I was not at fault. I was supported by Charlotte Rankin of Simpson Millar in bringing the claim.
Charlotte worked very hard to ensure that my claim was dealt with. However, my claim was resisted by the Co-op and past mental health issues were used against me as a reason for the claim being challenged and a reduced sum being awarded to me. I was often upset over the course of the two years it took for the claim to be resolved, particularly as focus was given to my mental issues.
Charlotte was a strong advocate in this regard; caring and considerate throughout and very supportive of me. She never once saw my mental health issues as a barrier or as a reason for my claim to be disregarded and was a very calming presence at a time of great stress.
Too often, mental health issues prevent people from moving forward with their lives. Charlotte proved to me that with the right support, mental health can be maintained and viewed in a positive light.Jacqueline Wilde
Charlotte Rankin and Amy Grant were both very professional and kept me updated at all times. My mother fell and broke her ankle whilst walking along a path leading to a beach. The council did not accept liability and the case did not progress. Despite the negative outcome. I feel all avenues were explored. I would not hesitate to use this company again.Clare
My brother was involved in a terrible accident resulting in him losing a toe when a piece of machinery went through his foot. Inevitably a claim was made because he can no longer work in the capacity he did and this has impacted every area of his life.
Charlotte Rankin of Simpson Millar was impeccable throughout whilst dealing with his claim. She tirelessly worked around the clock and sacrificed time with her family. I know this to be true as I have spoken to her on occasion out of office hours to answer her questions regarding my brother. She is friendly and caring and always replied promptly to any correspondence. It is a rare occurrence to find such kindness today but Charlotte Rankin saw the person and not just a case to be dealt with.
She advised wisely and fought for the best possible outcome for my brother and it has made a positive impact to the quality of his life. Thank you Charlotte.
