I am very happy with the service that I got from Personal Injury Claims Aberdeen. My Insurer referred me to them when I had an accident, as I had no legal cover with my car insurance. I was kept informed at all times, even though the claim took some time to complete due to no fault of theirs. They persevered, and my son got compensated for his injuries when we had a crash that wasn't my fault, and he was a passenger. They were very professional and covered all basis. I will recommend the firm to anyone needing representation in this situation.
