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 Abroad

Perhaps you came down with a stomach bug while on a cruise? Maybe your mother was badly hurt in a coach trip abroad? Or maybe a waiter accidentally spilled boiling hot coffee on your daughter’s arm when you were abroad?

While it is more difficult to claim compensation for injuries suffered abroad, we have successfully secured compensation for many clients who were injured whilst on holiday.

The rules governing this area date back to 1992, and help people who were injured on a package holiday claim compensation on their return. It saves them having to make their claim through the courts in a foreign country - but only applies to ‘package holidays’.

Package Holiday Claims

So what is a ‘package holiday’? According to the rules, a package means the pre-arranged combination of at least two of the following components when sold or offered for sale at an inclusive price and when the service covers a period of more than 24 hours or includes overnight accommodation:

  • transport
  • accommodation
  • other tourist services not ancillary to transport or accommodation and accounting for a significant proportion of the package

If you have paid for the different components under separate accounts then it can still be held to be a package. It can also still be a package if, for example, you have picked out your own accommodation and choice of flights and or excursion on the internet – so long as you paid for it at the same time.It is a complicated area.

One of our specialist No Win No Fee lawyers will be happy to talk things through with you, free of charge and with no obligation.
