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.

A female employee at a care home received compensation after being assaulted by a resident. The male resident had dementia and had been violent towards other care workers in the past. Despite this, the woman was left alone in the unit at the time of the attack.

She was left with injuries to her neck, arm and shoulder, as well as suffering from psychological effects caused by the trauma of the assault. Due to these injuries she now finds it difficult to work or perform basic household tasks.

Due to this she decided to pursue a compensation claim against her employer. She was successful, as her employer had not maintained the required health and safety standards. An employer has a duty to provide a safe working environment. This was not met as the woman did not have support from her colleagues to let her do her job safely. The court awarded her compensation and also ordered that the resident who assaulted her be sent to a secure unit.

If you have suffered an injury due to unsafe working conditions, call Thompsons No Win No Fee lawyers on 0800 0891 331 and we will advise you on the first steps to receiving the compensation you deserve.
