In 2021, according to Crashmap.co.uk, there were seven serious car accidents and three fatal accidents which occurred in and around Dumfries.
Of these ten accidents, six occurred in the urban areas of Dumfries, while four, including one fatal car accident, occurred on rural roads in the outlying area.
Road accident statistics have been significantly affected in recent years by the COVID-19 pandemic and various lockdown measures which were put in place to curb movement and halt the spread of the virus.
However, we believe even one car accident is too many, especially when innocent people have suffered serious and fatal injuries due to the negligence of another party. And we are dedicated to helping those injured in car accidents to seek justice.

All road users and all types of road traffic accident in Dumfries
The Thompsons' team in Dumfries can assist you whether you have been involved in a car accident as the driver, a passenger, or as a pedestrian. We also act for cyclists and passengers on public transport.
We can help you make a claim for personal injury compensation even if you were partially liable for your injuries. For instance, perhaps you were injured as a passenger in a car accident but were not wearing a seatbelt when the incident occurred. The court might decide that your injuries would have been less serious had you been wearing a seatbelt and will determine a reduction in the amount of compensation that can be awarded as a result of your own liability for your injuries.
