Partner, Head of Road Traffic Accidents
My son was involved in a serious RTA in December 2018 resulting in life-changing injuries. This turned out to be a very complicated and long-drawn-out affair, no doubt due to the insurance company. The case has finally been settled. The case was handled by Simon Stanfield and his handling can only be described as excellent from start to finish. Cannot fault the handling of the case in any way.Glyn
