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 pedestrian who was hurt in a road traffic accident is to be awarded compensation from a Council who failed to trim some bushes on a central reservation.

The lady from Dalston in North London was struck by a taxi whilst attempting to cross the road.  At the time of the accident the traffic lights were not in her favour.  At the first court hearing she was held to be at fault for the road traffic accident.

However the Court of Appeal found that the bushes in the central reservation had obscured her view of the traffic.  The three judges were all in agreement that despite the pedestrian’s own negligence, the council still owed her a duty of care.  They held that they failed in that duty as they had failed to trim the bushes.

The pedestrian was held to be 75% to blame for the accident which means that the Council require to pay her 25% of the compensation that is due to her.  The amount of compensation payable will be assessed at a later date.

As a result of the road traffic accident she suffered life threatening personal injuries, including internal injuries and a fracture to her neck.
