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.

This week (19th – 25th November 2018) marks Brake’s annual Road Safety Week.

Brake is the UK’s largest road safety charity. Their aim is simple; prevent accidents from happening in the first place. They work tirelessly to “raise awareness about road safety and needless deaths and injuries year-round”. Road Safety Week is utilised to raise safety awareness. Where accidents have already occurred, they provide vital support to victims of road traffic accidents.

This year’s Road Safety Week has a particular emphasis on bike safety, with slogan Bike Smart. We promote cycling as healthy activity; yet cycling on roads is a health risk due to vehicles. More than 38,000 cyclists and motorcyclists are killed or injured on the road in Britain every year.  Areas of campaign for change include better design of HGVs to protect the safety of cyclists (the view of a cyclist can be hidden for HGV drivers), educating drivers on the vulnerability of cyclists (and other vulnerable road users including horse riders), and the power of infrastructure – if we echod European cities with cycle paths then vulnerable road users wouldn’t even have to cycle. As a driver you can be proactively safer by using the following:
