Serious and fatal injury accidents in Scotland

At Thompsons, our top priority is – and has always been – to help those injured through no fault of their own and to ensure they receive the compensation they deserve.

Catastrophic injuries can occur in road traffic accidents, workplace accidents, public transport accidents, and more. These accidents may lead to brain injury, spinal injury, loss of eyesight, and severely injured limbs that require amputation. Sadly, the most serious accidents may result in fatality.

Each serious or fatal injury claim will vary to the next, but one thing is certain: the lives of the victim and/or their family will be significantly affected.

We understand that if you've sustained a serious injury, it may seem as if your whole world has been turned upside down. You may be facing a long road to recovery, but claiming compensation can help ensure you get access to the most appropriate treatment and rehabilitation services for your individual circumstances.

We realise that if you're making a fatal injury claim for the loss of a loved one, then no amount of compensation will ever turn back the clock. However, receiving the right amount of damages can better equip you to deal with the difficult period of time that follows, hopefully making it easier for you to gradually adjust and be financially secure in the future.
