Following an accident at work, due to having some experience in construction claim process, however, after a few months realised the construction claims and Personal Injury claims process are totally different, I decided to engage a specialist personal injury law firm and chose Slater and Gordon.
The person who would be dealing with my claim would be Jeff Logan Principal Personal Injury Lawyer at Slater and Gordon. There is no doubt appointing Slater and Gordon was a good decision and having Jeff as the person acting on my behalf turned out to be excellent.
Jeff and his team, in particular Helen Ferrell soon got down to business and took all the pressure of dealing with the claim away from me. Jeff kept me informed every step of the way, he did not give me any false hopes. His advice and guidance was both factual and frank. Even the Barrister Jeff instructed was frank and honest and spoke in a language I could understand.
Just over 12 months after instructing Slater and Gordon, my case was settled as a result of me accepting an offer from those I was claiming against. As I had recently been diagnosed with bladder cancer and had two operations, I wanted the case settled. There is no doubt if I had not accepted the offer and the matter had gone to trial there was every probability the award would have been greater than what I accepted. However, given my illness and the stress of this alone, I chose to accept the offer and the decision to accept the offer was mine and mine alone.
Without Slater and Gordon input I would not have had the result I had. I would not hesitate in recommending Slater and Gordon. They not only handle the case competently and professionally, they take time to answer any questions you may have and speak to you in terms you can understand. They even come to your home to meet with you.
Thank you Jeff, Helen and Slater and Gordon.”
“Gave sound advice while being mindful of budget. Able to respond quickly especially as I had a very short deadline for the help I needed. Very pleasant people to deal with. Clarity of communication. Everything was very smooth and gave me exactly what I needed.”
“Thank you for your assistance. I know you probably see this as just doing your job (which you do very well!) but for me your support has been more than that. I can't start to explain how reassuring it was to have someone so knowledgeable and tenacious in my corner at a time in my life when I felt so vulnerable, which was something of a shock to my system. Each time I would get correspondence from my employer, I had a sinking feeling, which would disappear with your response & reassurance. From my family and I, we thank you so much for your support.”
“Alpa was very proficient in evaluating my case and successfully negotiated an equitable settlement agreement with my employer. I would thoroughly recommend Slater & Gordon for their expertise in employment law.”
