“I was involved in a most serious accident, where I had to be pulled from a burning vehicle. I was shocked when Mr. Earnshaw got the police report which indicated the accident was my fault. Mr. Earnshaw believed me, consulted with a crash expert and demanded that the police conduct a second investigation.

As a result, the policeman admitted he had made mistakes in the report and a new report was issued. He then went on to file suit when the insurance company wouldn’t settle, go through the litigation process and obtain a great settlement before the trial date. I would recommend Mr. Earnshaw to anyone who is involved in an accident or Worker’s Compensation case.”
