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.

Help with Adaptations to your Home

Leaders in the most complex claims

Floor planCompensation to cover building costs

If you or someone close to you has suffered serious or catastrophic injury in a work, road or other accident you may find that your home is no longer suitable for your needs. In fact, in the event of a serious injury, carrying out even the most basic daily tasks may be impossible without some level of adaptation to your home environment.

Thompsons’ serious injury solicitors can assess your circumstances and the details of your accident to see if it may be possible to claim for compensation to cover the cost of any home adaptations that may be necessary to help you live as independent and comfortable a life as possible.

If your existing home cannot be adapted suitably, it may be appropriate for you to buy, build or adapt another property, and it is the aim of our personal injury solicitors to ensure that any such needs are fully accounted for.

All kinds of adaptations

A compensation claim for adaptation costs could potentially include:

  • Builder' fees
  • Architect's fees
  • Cost of specialist equipment

A compensation claim for having to move to a different property could potentially include:

  • Estate agent selling and buying fees
  • Adaptation costs
  • Annual cost of managing a larger house

Examples of the kinds of adaptations required by our serious and catastrophic injury claim clients include the following:

  • Lifts or stair lifts
  • Under-floor heating
  • Wheelchair access – for example, widening door frames
  • Adjustable sinks
  • Bathroom conversion
  • Hoist installation
  • Advanced anti-scalding thermostats
  • Handrail installation
  • Ramp installation
  • Therapy room extensions
  • Extra accommodation for carers and/or family
  • Adaptations to your vehicle
