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.

Accidents to Pedestrians

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

Per mile walked, pedestrians are around 11 times more likely to be killed in a road accident than car occupants, according to official figures.

In fact over 25,000 pedestrians were injured in road accidents in 2012 alone. Four hundred and twenty were killed and 24,798 were injured in some way – 5,559 of them seriously.

Pedestrian crossing

There are a number of things you can do to protect yourself and your family when you are out walking:

  • Keep a close eye on any children walking with you
  • Use pedestrian crossings and traffic islands if at all possible
  • Try to avoid crossing between parked cars
  • Do not wear headphones or use your mobile phone while crossing, as these reduce your ability to hear what is going on around you.

If you or a loved one is knocked over in an incident that was not your fault, you might be entitled to claim compensation.  You might still be able to claim, even if you are partially at fault for the injury – although the compensation awarded may be reduced to take account of this.

So how do you go about making a claim? How much will it cost? What should you do first?

These are all good questions. You’ll find some of the answers here, by clicking on the links below. Or give us a call on 0800 0891 331 and one of our specialist personal injury lawyers will be happy to chat things through, free of charge and with no obligation.
