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.

Car Accidents in Scotland

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

Client ReviewTransport Scotland statistics show that 168 people died in road accidents in Scotland in 2019, while 2,001 were seriously injured and over 5,425 suffered minor injuries.

As dreadful as these accident figures are, they are much better than they used to be. In 1980, for example, 29,286 people were killed or injured on Scotland’s roads.

So what has made the difference? Since 1980 there have been a growing number of road safety campaigns, advances in car safety technology, improved road design and a general increase in road safety awareness among the general population. These have all contributed to the fall in the number of casualties.

But these changes and campaigns have been implemented in different ways and times across the country, and this means that the number and type of car accidents in Scotland varies as you move from one region to another.

See, for example:

Compensation Claims for Car Accidents in Scotland

It is well known that most car accidents take place at low speed, resulting in minor injuries such as whiplash. More serious or fatal injuries are most likely to occur when the car is travelling at speed. Thankfully these are much less common.

In either case, if you have been injured in a car accident through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and other losses.
