A member of the Thompsons' Scotland team has spoken about his involvement in compensation claims for families and victims of the Clutha helicopter crash which took place on 29 November 2013.
A police helicopter crashed into the Clutha Vaults pub near the River Clyde in Glasgow killing 10 people and injuring others.
Andrew Henderson is head of the Serious and Fatal Injuries Unit here at Thompsons Solicitors and has been working on behalf of many of those involved in the tragedy.
Speaking to Glasgow's Evening Times, Andrew said, "What you've always got to remember about the Clutha tragedy is the unique circumstances. People out enjoying themselves, having a pint and listening to live music were caught up in the most awful incident."
While establishing liability was fairly straight-forward for our team of personal injury solicitors, each claimant's situation varied considerably given the scope of injuries sustained by individuals.
Securing a compensation settlement which meets the needs of those affected is of utmost importance to Andrew and our team of lawyers.
He and Nicola Kelly, a colleague and fellow lawyer working on Clutha compensation cases, both originate from Glasgow and aim to provide a caring and compassionate service to clients, while "robustly defending their legal rights".
Nicola has even begun taking night classes in counselling to ensure she can provide both legal and emotional support to claimants.
"The most important thing for me is that everyone is treated as an individual and their cases are given complete attention", Nicola told the local newspaper.
Dealing with large insurance companies can be difficult for grieving families and injured persons seeking compensation. At Thompsons' we are proud to say that our solicitors and lawyers truly care for their clients and go the extra mile to ensure they are provided with first-class, unbeatable legal services.
