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.

I was delighted to hear about the landmark Supreme Court decision which has demanded that insurers finally pay up to sufferers of asbestos-related diseases.  The court rejected a bid by insurance companies to overturn a Scottish law which gives people who have developed pleural plaques, a lung disorder associated with asbestos exposure, the right to claim compensation.

Campaigners, politicians and unions have stood alongside sufferers of asbestos-related diseases as insurers have dragged the matter through the courts.  Dave Moxham, deputy general secretary of the Scottish Trades Union Congress, referred to the insurers actions as “disgraceful”.  Patrick McGuire, partner at Thompsons told the insurance companies: “It is time to stop hiding behind legal loopholes.  It is time to stop looking for more legal loopholes.  You were more than happy to take the premiums.  The companies you insured were negligent. People are dying.  It’s time to pay.”

I am so glad that the Supreme Court has made the right decision and sufferers will now be able to obtain the compensation they deserve.
