Specialist earthquake team

Our Specialist Earthquake Team is Ready for Anything

These are challenging times for Cantabrians – getting a fair deal on your damaged property can be as stressful as a quake in the middle of the night.

Accepting offers just to get it ‘over and done with’ can mean further hassles down the line. The last thing anyone wants (or needs) is to make a decision short-term that affects them negatively in the long-term.

Unfortunately, many people don’t realise just how important independent legal advice is.

We have a specialist Earthquake Legal Team standing-by that have already helped many Cantabrians in personal and business insurance matters.

So if you’ve had enough of dealing with claims, forms, the EQC or insurance companies – hand it over to us. We’ll sort out the frustrating bits and allow you to focus on recovering and rebuilding.

We’ll get you a fair deal and make sure you’re paid what you’re worth. Call us now for information, advice and support.

We’re ready for anything.
