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.

Adapting Your Vehicle Following an Accident

Leaders in the most complex claims

Road through a valleyCompensation to cover special vehicle costs

For many people who suffer a serious or catastrophic injury, it may no longer be possible to drive a standard factory model car. 

Having customised adaptations made to a vehicle may make it possible for some accident victims to continue to drive their own car and enjoy a high level of independence and mobility. For others, the best route may be to buy a new vehicle that has already been adapted to meet specialist needs. 

The cost of purchasing a new car or adapting an existing vehicle is something that can be included by our serious injury solicitors in a claim for compensation and our personal injury solicitors are in the ideal position to help achieve this end.  

In addition, when necessary, we can help clients achieve the compensation they require to make adaptations to their homes – more information can be found here.  

What constitutes an adaptation?

There are many adaptations that can be made to cars in order to enable injured parties to return to independent driving. These include:

  • Hand controls
  • Specially placed armrests
  • Accelerator rings
  • Lighter power steering
  • Fitted straps
  • Fitted handles
  • Wheel turning devices
  • Specially designed seats
  • Adaptations for a wheelchair
  • Remote control
  • Electric gears
