Alex Tomlinson

Alex suffered a mild concussion after a car crashed into the front side of his car. After a frightening experience, we did our best to provide Alex with a stress-free claim and guidance from start to finish.


Sandu worked as a welder but was not provided a mask by his employers. This resulted in Sandu being poisoned by carbon monoxide. After finding us online, we helped Sandu file a successful claim against his ex-employers.
