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.

Compensation Claims

Every year I speak to many people who are injured due to falls on buses.  A bus does not drive like a car and its jerky braking and accelerating can make it a hazard for those onboard, especially those standing or still to take their seats.

Many passengers a year are injured from falls on buses and come to me to help them claim compensation and gain redress.

I have met with and continue to help soldiers, and families of soldiers injured in battle. 

Soldiers know of the risks associated with their jobs but it is my job to make sure that they are properly taken care of should they get injured.

Compensation claims against hospitals are often riddled with difficulty.  Doctors and hospital staff are, after all, only human and are trying to do their best for their patients.

With this in mind, any act of negligence needs to be pretty clear before a compensation claim can proceed.

£2 million in compensation has been awarded to a man in England who was left severely disabled due to problems during his birth.

28-year-old, Jonathon Khairule’s severe cerebral palsy means that he can only communicate by typing on a keyboard with his nose.

Thompsons are delighted to collectively represent the families at the upcoming Public Inquiry into the C-Diff deaths at the Vale of Leven hospital, Alexandria.

Public Inquiries are a big part of our work and are often a vital stage which allows victims and their families to gain answers to questions that may have weighed on their minds for years.  We realise that answers come before compensation and that is why we aim to provide our clients with Answers first, Compensation second and lastly Closure.

Clydeside Action on Asbestos, pleural plaques victims and Frank Maguire, our Senior Partner at Thompsons Solicitors all welcomed the news that the bid by insurers to block the Scottish Parliament’s new law confirming the right to compensation of victims of pleural plaques has been blocked.

As well as acting for victims of accidents we at Thompsons also help those who are the innocent victims of assault or other crimes of violence.

The police will investigate the crime and press criminal charges; we will fight for compensation for the victim from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).

Libel is the English equivalent of what is known as defamation in Scotland and something is libel or slanderous when it is a false and malicious publication printed for the purpose of defaming a living person.  Successful cases often attract millions in compensation for famous persons but as here the amount of compensation remains undisclosed as a condition of settlement.
