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.

It is peak holiday season and every year 130 million Europeans plan a holiday in another EU country.  Around 3/4 of holidaymakers will use a car or a motorbike whilst on holiday and it is likely that some of those road users will be unfortunate enough to be involved in a road traffic accident.  It is estimated that around 2% of road traffic accidents in the EU involve visitors from another EU country.

Very often these unlucky holidaymakers have no idea how to claim compensation especially if they are a victim of an accident in a country other than their own.  Time limits for making a claim differ from country to country and of course there is sometimes a bit of a language barrier.  The procedures for making claims also vary vastly from one country to the next.

This month the European Commission has launched a public consultation to help victims of cross-border road traffic accidents.  The Consultation is open until 19th November.  EU’s Justice Commissioner stated that “The European Commission wants to find out more so that we can offer effective solutions and make sure all victims have proper access to justice. European Citizens should feel at ease when using their car to go on holiday in another EU country”.
