At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

Headway - The Brain Injury Association

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

Headway LogoHeadway was first registered as a charity in 1980 and now has groups and branches across the UK, including 13 in Scotland. The organisation's mission is to promote understanding of brain injury and to provide information, support and dedicated services to brain injury survivors and their families.

The charity also campaigns to increase safety across multiple fields, including in sport, in workplaces and in the home, ultimately with the hope of reducing the number of people affected by brain injury each year.

Another important part of Headway's work is in promoting improvement in brain injury screening, acute care, assessment, rehabilitation and community reintegration.

A widespread network of locally run groups and branches is supported by Headway UK, with each local body offering advice and access to a range of services which may include brain injury rehabilitation programmes, carer support, social reintegration, community outreach and respite care.

Headway Scotland

With groups and branches in Ayrshire, Borders, Dundee and Angus, East Lothian, Edinburgh, Falkirk, Fife, Glasgow, Grampian, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, Perth and Kinross, and Highland groups including Dingwall, Dornoch, Fort William, Nairn, Thurso, and Wick, the charity provides local information and support to brain injured people and their families in Scotland.

Many of the branches have their own websites; contact details for all groups can be found on the main Headway website:

Thompsons working with Headway in Scotland

Thompsons partner, Glenn Millar, says, "As a law firm, we regularly see the tragic effects of traumatic brain injury on both the injury victim and their families. We work extremely hard to ensure that our clients receive the justice they deserve when their injuries have been caused by another party.

"We are proud to work with Headway, and our longstanding partnership spans many years. Our staff members are passionate about the work the charity carries out and many have taken lead voluntary roles in local Headway groups. This allows us to provide a really holistic service which can signpost all the options and support services available for head injury claimants."
