I was undecided whether I wanted to make a claim because of the hassle involved, which I could well do without, mainly because of the ongoing problems after my injury. After contacting, it became clear that it is a very professional company & the inquiry was dealt with promptly & professionally with a pleasant manner. I got a decision on whether I had a claim very quickly without too much hassle.
