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.

Mr Reed has received a payment of £14,000 as a result of his compensation claim against his employer. He was employed by a company called Hepworth Concrete Ltd which manufactured cement. Mr Reed was employed in the manufacturing process.

However, his employer did not at any point warn him about the dangers involved in working with cement dust. He was also not provided with proper protective equipment or even advised to wear gloves. On occasions he even had to change in or out of his work clothes next to where he was working.

As a result of these conditions and treatment Mr Reed developed contact dermatitis on his legs, forearms and hands. The skin became itchy and uncomfortable and these symptoms have persisted in the three years since he stopped working for Hepworth Concrete Ltd.

Due to this severe discomfort Mr Reed decided to seek compensation from his former employer. At first his claim was contested, but his employer backed down after facing the prospect of being taken to court and Mr Reed accepted a settlement of £14,000.

If you are suffering from dermatitis due to poor working conditions, contact Thompsons No Win No Fee solicitors on 0800 0891331, as you may be entitled to claim compensation.
