What is a Personal Injury?

We are proud to use our significant personal injury expertise to support UK trade union members, and their families, who have been the victim of accident or injury. We only ever act for the victims of personal injury and never for the employers or insurance companies liable for those injuries.

We have more experience of winning personal injury compensation claims than any other firm in the UK, whether those accidents take place at work, at home, in public places or on holiday.

Our dedicated teams of personal injury lawyers secure hundreds of millions of pounds in personal injury compensation for injured union members every year. Union members keep 100% of their personal injury compensation when using union legal schemes, which is in contrast to high street lawyers who will make deductions to the final sum secured.

To find out what sets Thompsons apart as a specialist personal injury law firm, read Our Pledge.

Our teams are built up of road traffic accident claims experts, industrial and asbestos disease compensation specialists, medical negligence solicitors, serious injury claims specialists and experienced accident at work solicitors.

We act fast to establish the facts of the case and source relevant medical evidence to build a robust personal injury compensation claim that takes into account your immediate and future needs. This includes covering loss of earnings if you’re unable to work following accident or injury and any adaptions needed to your home or vehicle.

Our priority is to secure the maximum amount of compensation in the shortest possible time, all the while keeping you informed and updated on your case.

"Without the legal weight and expertise from Thompsons and my union, I’m certain I wouldn’t have been properly compensated for what happened to me."

Paul, trade union member
