About Simon A Holt & Company
Simon A Holt & Co. specialize in personal injury claims nationwide, including road traffic accidents, slipping and tripping, accidents at work and claims under the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority scheme, together with clinical negligence and professional negligence.
The firm was founded in 1974 by Simon A. Holt as a sole practitioner.
Caroline Marchbank-Caunce and Susan Ayre became partners in 1998 and Michael
Blair in 2005. Simon Holt is a Solicitor-Advocate (which grants him the same
rights of audience in the High Court and Court of Protection as a Barrister)
and a member of the Law Society's Personal Injury Panel
The partners deal predominantly with personal injury litigation having
particular experience in dealing with claims involving catastrophic head and
spinal injuries and other injuries of the utmost severity and dealing with
care regimes with the Court of Protection.
The firm also runs "Cycle Aid" an organisation founded in 1988 to assist cyclists countrywide, who have been involved in accidents, recovering compensation of many millions of pounds. In 2003 we recovered the highest award ever made to a UK citizen in a package settlement totalling in excess of Â£8,000,000. This was achieved in a period of under two years from the date of the accident. Since, through our experience in substantial claims, we were able to immediately organise and work with a team of experts with whom we had already established working relationships in previous large claims.
A 24 hour accident line is in operation and experienced legal practitioners are on hand to provide initial free advice.

Throughout our correspondence you have shown a degree of service and attention to detail which is rare indeed in today's commercial world. I hope that through my own personal recommendation of your services to others I may, in small measure, repay the kindness, generosity and concern I have received at your hands since the commencement of my claim in February of this year. Thank you." - RB Preston ********
