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.

Over 1500 people were awarded compensation after buying faulty sofas. The victims suffered skin irritation, rashes, burns and various other health problems due to a chemical contained in the sofas. The sofas were made in China and contained a fungicide called DMF. Although European law requires that imported sofas are tested before entering the UK, the chemical was so toxic that it was not tested for, as it was assumed that it would never be used in the manufacture of sofas.

DMF turns into a gas when heated, and the problem with this being used in sofas is that when people sit on them their body heat activates the gas. This means that the more people used their sofas, the greater their injuries. Many high street retailers had sold these sofas, including Argos and Land of Leather.

This was the first case of its kind, and so there was no guide as to the level of compensation to be awarded. In the end, the victims were awarded between £1,250 and £10,000 of compensation, depending on the seriousness of their injuries.
