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.

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority exist to make redress to innocent victims of crime who have become injured due to a criminal act (usually an assault).

Since the scheme was launched, no win no fee compensation lawyers have been helping victims obtain compensation from the authority.

The process is often difficult and the guidance of specialist no win no fee lawyers is invaluable in helping deserving victims in obtaining compensation in situations where there would be little point in suing their attacker or the identity of their attacker is unknown.

The government has announced plans for stricter guidelines for who is able to claim compensation under the CICA scheme.

The reforms include stopping payments of compensation to anyone who holds a criminal record for any previous offences.

The amount of compensation is also being slashed.  Sometimes by amounts of up to 25%.

The government face opposition in relation to the cuts from back benchers and lobbying groups (supported by no win no fee compensation Solicitors) who say that the payouts to victims are already too small.
