Personal actions and compensation
If you believe that you may be entitled to compensation or have a claim against someone, you should speak to Stacks Collins Thompson. Our lawyers offer personalised advice and a fair assessment of your situation. Claims can cover harm you have suffered or a failure by someone to act properly. Your loss need not be monetary and can cover physical or emotional loss. We also advise on a number of specialised claims, such as employment matters and traffic compensation.
In many cases, it is important to act quickly, as certain forms of claim may be restricted by short time limits. Get in touch with our solicitors and receive a professional opinion today.
