    They are answering negative trustpilot reviews (as little as 2 days ago).  So, that suggests open for business still.

    I am an Independent Financial Adviser (IFA). The comments I make are just my opinion and are for discussion purposes only. They are not financial advice and you should not treat them as such. If you feel an area discussed may be relevant to you, then please seek advice from an Independent Financial Adviser local to you.

    I have an ongoing accident claim in with then. 
    I have had 4 different advisors in the last 6 months. I have to repeatedly resend evidence and documents. 
    There internal communication must be so poor. 
    They need regular chasing to do anything. 

    My case is open and shut. Hit by a car driver who took full responsibility under police caution and attended a driver awareness course over a year ago. 
    I'm still no closer to the finish line 19 months after the accident. 

    A couple on handlers have said they have had major restructuring.

    Shock horror, ambulance chasers aren’t the best.
    helpful tips
    it's spelt d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y
    there - 'in or at that place'
    their - 'owned by them'
    they're - 'they are'
    it's bought not brought (i just bought my chicken a suit from that new shop for £6.34)

    Shock horror, I'm left with lifelong injuries. 
    Slater and Gordon are recommended by UK Cycling and that who they use for members. 

    You may class that as 'ambulance chasing' but those of us who sadly go this route have actually been rushed to hospital strapped to spinal boards in the back of an ambulance.

    Recommended likely because they’ll get a nice kick back for each referral from their members.

  • They have an agreement, probably for kickbacks yes but a cyclist who needs a law firm for damages is not like your average fake whiplash claim, if you've been hit by a car (as I have, twice, both times driver at fault) you know about it. I didn't have the blues on for my A&E trip but did take well over 3 months for the soft tissue damage to recover (I used another firm and honestly the payout vs the numbers you seen for whiplash is a joke)
