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.

Time is of the essence - accident claims abroad

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

If you've been injured in a workplace accident, road traffic accident or other incident abroad – perhaps while on holiday, on an extended stay outside of the UK or while visiting friends – Thompsons's specialist lawyers in Scotland can help you make an accident abroad claim for the maximum possible compensation.

It is important to remember that you can start your claim with Thompsons even while you are still abroad, this is particularly imperative as there are strict time limits in place for the making of a claim, and these vary from country to country. Another advantage to taking swift action is the fact that collecting evidence is much easier when carried out an early stage, particularly in relation to gathering witness statements.

Thompsons is one of Scotland's leading personal injury firms with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Peebles, Galashiels and Dundee. We win around 90% of the cases we take on and secure more than £1 million in compensation for our clients each week.
