My experience with H.D Partnership was excellent. The process was straight forward trouble free. Thank you
A big thank you to all at Hamilton Douglas for your efforts. Thankfully I was awarded £3850.00 for my injuries sustained as a result of an accident at work. I am very pleased with the outcome and will highly recommend your firm.
Impeccable service and very friendly staff. I was awarded a figure more than I expected and I am very grateful to the staff that made it happen. Thank you
I was left with a broken arm after an accident at the Ice Rink. After the operation on my arm I should have been received physiotherapy within 10 days. Unfortunately this did not happen and as result I ended up with an extremely stiff shoulder. I am please to say after contacting H.D Partnership I was awarded £5650.00 for the medical negligence and I could not be more grateful. Thank you.
