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.

Thompsons has notched up another successful win for a union client who fell at work resulting in head injuries which impacted on her senses.

Janet Harper, who was employed by British Polythene Industries in Greenock, tripped over a piece of metal in the warehouse causing her to fall in November 2010. She put out her hand to break her fall which resulted in soft tissue damage to her right wrist as well as more serious head injuries.

As a member of Unite, Mrs Harper was entitled to free legal support from specialist trade union lawyers Thompsons. Thompsons initiated a claim on her behalf on the grounds that her employers had breached the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 due to the work environment being unsafe. Liability was admitted and a settlement figure of £12,500 was agreed.

Mrs Harper said: “I was really pleased with the result of my claim and grateful to Thompsons and Unite for all their help and support. The whole process was very straightforward and easy and Thompsons handled everything from start to finish.”

If you have been involved in an accident in or out of the workplace, as a union member you will be entitled to free legal support.
