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 Edinburgh

It is no surprise that the majority of all traffic accidents take place in city centres. This is because there are simply more people in cities – those who live there and those who commute in – and they all have to get from place to place.

Edinburgh is no different. In fact, 35% of all the employees in Scotland’s capital commute into the city every day, adding to the chaos and increasing the risk of having a car crash.

Last year, for example, 1,159 people suffered a slight injury in car accidents in Edinburgh, according to provisional figures from Transport Scotland. Nearly 130 people were seriously injured and eight people were killed.

The figures confirm that the injuries that result from city-based car accidents tend to be minor, because the cars involved are subject to a low speed limit. These injuries tend to include:

  • Neck injuries, such as whiplash
  • Fractures
  • Lower back injuries and
  • Arm or shoulder injuries

You will find other examples of common road accident injuries here.

Regardless of the type, if you have suffered an injury in a road accident that was caused, at least partly, by someone else, you could be entitled to compensation.
