We know that it’s daunting when you first talk to a lawyer about a compensation claim. It’s a conversation no-one ever truly wants to have to have but, for almost a thousand spinal cord-injured people and their families each year, it’s one of the conversations that can set them on the road to recovery.
We provide a personal and friendly service to every single client, from the first phone call or face to face meeting, to the day we send you the cheques for your damages.
Our dedicated teams are located across the UK. There will be a Thompsons’ office near to you. We understand that mobility issues, child care or a simple desire to remain close to home when you are feeling less confident means that it’s important your lawyers can come to you; whether that’s at home or a hospital. Our solicitors and client support coordinators are always happy to meet with clients at a location that’s convenient to them.
