Wendy Durie PartnerAngela Farrell suffered a serious accident at her work where she was employed as a housing officer with the council.  As a member of the trade union UNISON Mrs Farrell was advised to contact Thompsons straight away. 

While she was working in her office Angela fell over the leg of a white board that had been left lying around from the previous day. She fell between two filing cabinet and sustained a painful injury to her right shoulder. One of the first things that Thompsons did was send her to a specialist orthopaedic surgeon who confirmed the seriousness of the injury. With this medical evidence Thompsons raised a court action against her employer saying there had been breaches of  workplace safety. This was admitted by Angela’s employer and they settled for a very substantial amount.

Angela said “I’m just very happy with the way things turned out. Because of my injury I wasn’t able to return to work and Thompsons made sure my pay-out reflected my pension situation as well the injury I received. They always kept me well informed and anytime I called with questions they took my call straight away. I would have no problem with telling any friends or former colleagues to call Thompsons if they were in a similar situation.

Wendy Durie a partner with Thompsons who handled Mrs Farrell’s case said “ It might seem that Mrs Farrell only suffered a small fall at her work but that accident had very serious and painful consequences for her. She wasn’t able to return to her work.  We were able to secure a very substantial payment for Mrs Farrell which shows just how important it is to have an expert team of lawyers fighting on your behalf.”
