Testimonial from head injured client – £1.3 million settlement

“I was involved in a high energy road traffic accident, and suffered from a severe traumatic brain with a skull and base fractures together with traumatic intracranial haemorrhages.  During the litigation process it was difficult, however, Navdip Gill and Marcus Grant worked tirelessly absorbing the pressure from the insurance company and their legal representatives.

I was kept constantly updated and fully involved in this process with my legal team who took the time to explain everything clearly and patiently. Equally I would recommend anybody who has sustained a brain injury to contact this dynamic team who are extremely skilful in dealing with complex cases and seemed to thrive in pressured environments.”

Testimonial from brain injured client involved in RTA

I was involved in a serious cycling accident, sustaining a head injury. I became increasingly concerned about the handling of my case by a previous firm and switched my legal team halfway through litigation. I was very impressed by the speed at which Navdip Gill and Marcus Grant reviewed my case and their in-depth and up-to-date knowledge of traumatic brain injuries. This gave me a great deal of confidence in their abilities which they proved was not unfounded. They replied promptly to queries from me, always had the facts of my case to hand and had a clear plan. I can’t thank them enough for taking on my challenging case at the last minute, for managing it so well and for obtaining such an excellent settlement ” Dr C

"I was involved in a motorcycle accident and fractured my ankle and as result I have not be able to go back to my sporting activities. My initial thoughts were that I would not claim, however, my symptoms continued for more than 12 months and therefore I contacted Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors. Navdip guided me through this complex process and thanks to his knowledge, straight talking and his chosen Orthopaedic Surgeon he managed to secure a settlement in excess of £10,000. Navdip’s undivided attention and commitment was clear in my case and I would recommend anybody involved in a serious motorcycling accident to go and see Navdip"
