What is a Serious Injury?

Thompsons is trusted by the UK’s leading trade unions to represent their members if the worst should happen and they suffer a catastrophic or serious injury.

Our serious injury specialists have secured millions of pounds for trade union members in the most severe accidents, both in and out of the workplace.

We understand that serious injuries have an immediate and enduring impact on the injured person’s life and the lives of their families. Thompsons acts quickly, preparing a robust legal case to pursue interim compensation payments to ensure injured trade union members have access to the very best medical care, rehabilitation support, specialist equipment and lifestyle adaptations as early as possible.

We use our extensive expertise, built up over decades of running cases of the upmost severity, to secure multi-million pound settlements for trade union members who have suffered spinal cord injuries, severe burns, amputations, brain injuries or for the families of those who have lost their lives.
