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.

An RAF Corporal has successfully sued for compensation after being injured at work. 52 year old Shaun Wood worked as a painter with the RAF. During this period of employment he was exposed to dangerous chemicals while working in conditions which were described as “Victorian”. At the time he was not aware of the effects of exposure to the chemicals.

As a result of this he now suffers from Multiple System Atrophy-P, also known as MSAP, which has left him confined to a wheelchair. Due to this condition, his health will continue to get worse.

He was able to show in court that this condition was caused due to the exposure to the dangerous chemicals at work. As a result of this he was awarded compensation by the judge. The amount of compensation is to be decided at a future hearing, but industry experts believe that the payout will be “substantial”.

It is believed that some of Mr Wood’s former colleagues now suffer from similar conditions, meaning that this decision could lead to further compensation claims.
