Expert solicitors at your side when you need us most
In 2019, 168 people were killed on Scotland's roads and 2,001 people were seriously injured.
Car accidents cause some of the most catastrophic and life-changing injuries we see and we regularly assist car accident victims and their families as they recover and rehabilitate following an RTA.
For many of these people, their lives will be altered irreparably and when the accident has been caused by the negligence of a third party, it can be one of the hardest things to bear. At Thompsons, we have decades of experience in representing claimants who have been seriously injured in car accidents and we strongly believe our compensation claim service is the best in Scotland.
