What is an Accident at Work?

Our commitment to the trade union movement is written into our partnership deed. We proudly campaign alongside UK trade unions to help establish good health and safety practice at work and have taken many of the test cases that have refined those laws ever since.

As a member of a trade union, you understand the important role of proper health and safety procedures in the workplace. At Thompsons, we’ve seen first-hand the devastating impact on workers when health and safety slips down the agenda and people get injured.

Our dedicated and specialist trade union solicitors represent tens of thousands of people injured in workplace accidents each year, ranging from minor lacerations through to brain and spinal cord injuries, serious burns and even fatalities. If we act for you, you can trust us to help get you the best compensation available.

Health and safety breaches, however minor they may seem, are everybody’s business. Speak to your union to report hazards in your workplace as soon as you become aware of them and if the worst should happen, and you’re injured at work, contact your union legal service first for free, independent advice and the promise of 100% compensation if your claim is successful.
