Domestic Assistance Quotation Services (DAQs)

Providing quotations for your clients’ domestic needs

Do you read through witness statements and find regular references to the level of domestic assistance your clients require? If so, call Photofile for bespoke comparative quotations suitable for inclusion in your clients’ Schedule of Loss;

  • home help
  • household maintenance
  • gardening
  • shopping
  • caring for pets

Having assisted personal injury and clinical negligence lawyers for many years, we have come to appreciate that the smaller, not so obvious details of a case are just as crucial to ensure the most advantageous outcome. Elements of the daily routine can sometimes be over-looked; our abilities to carry out such tasks can be taken for granted. When you become dependent on others for assistance in these areas, you soon appreciate what has been lost.

At Photofile we pride ourselves on the level of support we can offer you, whilst you honour the promise to your clients to fight for the best possible outcome. In light of this we are pleased to announce the invaluable latest addition of ‘Domestic Assistance Quotation Services’.
