Glasgow's long history as an industrial powerhouse of Scotland (and indeed of Great Britain) has brought much prosperity and trade to the region. But this positive legacy has been accompanied by a history of personal injury and industrial disease, which has left Glasgow with some of the highest rates of work-related illness across the country.
The marine engineering and shipbuilding industry excellence that Glasgow cultivated has left a devastating toll in the form of asbestos diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestosis and has also resulted in many work accident injuries.
Thompsons has a proud history of helping anyone who has suffered personal injury or ill-health as a result of going to work. We are heavy weight campaigners for the rights of workers, and indeed anyone who has been harmed as a result of another person's or organisation's negligence and we strive to help them gain access to justice.

As a team of solicitors we provide many different legal services alongside our personal injury claim work. We handle employment law claims, criminal injury claims and financial mis-selling claims as well as providing services in relation to Will writing, Lasting Powers of Attorney, and executry Visit our other legal services section for more information.
