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.

Thompsons welcomes the announcement of an Employer's Liability Insurance Bureau Scheme for mesothelioma claims.

The Department of Work and Pensions yesterday announced a £300 million fund of last resort for those sufferers of mesothelioma who have been unable to obtain compensation as their former employer or its liability insurers cannot be traced.  There are around 300 sufferers annually who are in the situation where they are unable to claim and lose out on compensation.

The scheme came into force on 25 July 2012 and is open to anyone diagnosed with mesothelioma from that date. The indications are that the first payments will be made by July 2014 although legislation is still to be put in place. Membership will be compulsory for all employers’ liability insurers.
