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.

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.

A woman has received compensation after slipping in spilt prawn cocktail in a Marks and Spencer store. She sustained a broken hip as a result of the fall.

Janet Morritt, 71, had been out shopping in her local Marks and Spencer store in Perth at the time of the accident.  As she was walking down an aisle she slipped in a puddle, causing her to fall against a chilled food cabinet.

The impact of the fall caused her to break her hip. She was forced to stay in hospital for eight days and had to have a screw and a plate inserted in her hip.  She now has to use a wheelchair to move long distances and is unable to drive.

She claimed compensation for these injuries but Marks and Spencer refused to admit fault, claiming that she should have watched where she put her feet.  The court did not see it this way however, and upheld her claim, awarding her £7,500 in compensation.
