Parnalls is well known for its speciality in accident claims, whether it be road traffic accidents, accidents at work, slipping or tripping, accidents involving products, industrial disease or medical negligence. The Parnalls Litigation Team has literally obtained millions of pounds in compensation for their clients as a result of pursuing claims. The Parnalls Litigation Team specialise in taking over cases which have been run by other lawyers and, in particular, lawyers instructed by a client’s insurance company, where clients have not been happy with the way their claims have been pursued, have transferred to Parnalls and get the service they deserve and the best possible outcome. The Team also handles employment, all civil and commercial disputes and road traffic offence work.
Katherine adds “we have a formidable team here in the Litigation Department at Parnalls. Anyone with a legal dispute can confidently instruct Parnalls and we will provide you with the best possible service. We have a quick response time, the Department is manned by qualified professionals, clients will be seen quickly and in person, clients’ problems identified and effective solutions found. We are happy to operate out of hours and at different locations if clients’ needs demand that, and modern means of communication are always employed to keep matters moving quickly and progressively. Litigation has moved on a long way, even in the last few years and Lawyers have to react to that. I am confident that with our present Team, the service we are providing is as good as it gets”.
Senior Director Mark Parnall says “when you are in trouble you want Parnalls on your side. Katherine’s Team is formidable and is committed to finding the best solutions for Parnalls’ client base”.
