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.

C-Diff

While the number of C Difficile infections is falling, it is still the cause of most cases of hospital-acquired diarrhoea in the UK.

In Scotland for example, 294 people over the age of 65 were infected with the disease between January and March 2013. A further 98 15-64 year-olds also came down with a C Diff infection over the same period.

C Difficile, or Clostridim Difficile, is a bacterial infection that targets the digestive system. In most cases it causes fever, diarrhoea and stomach cramps, but this can be very serious in people who are already weakened by illness.

Sadly, C-Diff is easily spread between people, as its spores are very hardy and can survive on contaminated surfaces for a long time.

C-Diff Compensation Claims

If you or a loved one contracted the C-Diff virus in hospital and the hospital was in any way unclean, or staff failed to follow their own infection control policies or cleanliness procedures, then you may have a claim for compensation.

But it is a very complicated area. It is very hard to prove that a C-Diff infection was caused as a result of negligence rather than simply your being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Expert advice is essential.
