Lawyers ScotlandThompsons Solicitors is proud to announce two new partners along with the promotion of three new associates. Peter O’Donnell and David Martyn who jointly manage the firm’s award winning employment law team are appointed partner and will continue to build on their enormous success with trade union clients across Scotland. Peter who joined Thompsons in 2007 and David who joined in 2009 have grown the number of trade union clients represented by the firm and are regularly involved in some of the country’s most high profile employment cases. The most notable recently being the securing of a financial deal for Tullis Russell workers in Fife and a similar settlement for workers in Ayrshire made redundant with 15 minutes notice by one of Mike Ashley’s companies.

This Thompsons client had a nasty fall and twisted his ankle after falling into a pothole. The accident occurred outside a Glasgow hospital but the local health board had failed to fix the problem and it was causing a considerable risk to patients and health workers alike. Thompsons contacted the health board and within 3 months a small settlement was worked out.

Commenting on the outcome the client said “To be honest I hadn’t really considered doing much about this and it was more about getting the healthboard to sit up and take notice that there was a huge hazard right outside one of their hospitals. It was a nasty fall and my ankle was swollen for some time but the main thing for me was they made the entrance safe. It seemed the only way to get the health board to move was to get the lawyers involved. Thompsons were polite and efficient. The whole thing was settled really quickly”

Laura McGeeHis Lawyer Laura McGee commented “Compared with most of the cases we handle this was a small one. But having said that the gentleman involved was concerned about a large pothole at the very entrance to a hospital and he was annoyed it had led to him having a very painful fall. We were able to secure him a small but fair level of compensation and were also able to focus the health board on their duty to make their building safe”
