Making a slip, trip or fall claim with Thompsons Solicitors

Slips, trips and falls are some of the most common types of personal injuries, and can happen in a variety of settings, from public places in the UK or abroad, to the workplace. Although the majority of slips, trips and falls will leave people shaken and unscathed, sometimes they can cause more serious and life-changing injuries, such as spinal cord injuries and brain injuries

If you, or a loved one, has suffered a personal injury as a result of a slip, trip or fall that was someone else’s fault or responsibility – whether that’s a local council who failed to maintain a public footpath or your employer failing to implement proper health and safety procedures – you can make a personal injury compensation claim free of any legal fees with Thompsons Solicitors via your union membership.

"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."

Thompsons Solicitors has supported hundreds of thousands of injured trade union members to secure millions of pounds in compensation since its foundation in 1921. One client, who was forced into early retirement after she dislocated her shoulder in a fall at work, received a settlement of £54,000 after turning to Thompsons Solicitors’ personal injury lawyers. In another case, Thompsons Solicitors secured compensation for a photojournalist who tripped over in the street, injuring his ankle and finger.

Regardless of the location of your slip, trip or fall injury, Thompsons Solicitors is proud to help trade unions and will always aim to secure the maximum amount of compensation in the quickest time possible. Unlike with other non-union law firms, trade union members will keep 100 per cent of the compensation and will not incur any hidden legal fees with Thompsons Solicitors.
