The process of claiming against the other party was made so much easier thanks to Belmont Solicitors and especially Karen Barr and her team. Fantastic work and thank you all for your help and guidance. 100% recommended
My accident happened right before covid, so there were loads of delays and even a hand over in solicitors. With all the interferences, Belmont never let me down. They stayed in touch and stayed very honest throughout the whole thing.
Belmont solicitors have been assisting me with an injury claim from a car accident I was in earlier this year. They have been excellent throughout making sure I am aware of everything that’s been going on and providing me with all the information I need to make informed decisions. The outcome has been fantastic and I have been treated with integrity and care throughout. I would highly recommend them to anybody.
Amazing service throughout my experience dealing with Belmont, they helped me with an injury claim following a car accident and I received an excellent service and quick settlement with the case. Highly recommend.
The team at Belmont has been great. They went through the information with me as often as I needed to understand all the legal bits and feel comfortable proceeding. I was given an update as soon as it was available, which meant I didn’t have to constantly call - which in my experience is not always the case with solicitors. Overall very happy with the service received.
Well thanks to Belmont, i’ve manage to get my injury claim in rather quickly is feels like.

Can’t thank Rizwan enough for all his help. Very friendly and knowledgeable about the case. Never had to call them as he kept me updated with any new developments. Will definitely refer friends and family and will use Belmont solicitors again if needed.
I would highly recommend these guys, extremely helpful, always kept me up to date with progress either by calls or emails, I was more than happy with all staff from receptionists to case holders, would highly recommend.
Good service. Kept me informed about my personal injury claim - which took about a year to settle, which was due to the other party in the accident's insurer going into liquidation, but they kept at it and eventually succeded in getting the payment. Would definately recommend.
