Thompsons was founded in 1921 by Harry Thompson and was built on a vision of using the law to provide justice for working people. Today, that vision lives on in our expert litigation teams who, together, form the most experienced personal injury practice in the UK.

We are proud that our specialist personal injury lawyers, industrial disease experts, accident at work claim specialists, serious injury solicitors and medical negligence lawyers are fully regulated, accredited and recognised for their skill, empathy and expertise by the likes of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, Action Against Medical Accidents, Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500. 

Every year, Thompsons secures hundreds of millions of pounds in damages by investing our wealth of expertise and specialist knowledge into each and every personal injury case. We are also a proud partner to the trade union movement, dedicated to providing the very best in legal protection to millions of trade union members based across the UK.

We have a reputation for fighting harder to secure the highest possible compensation settlement from the party at fault than any other law firm.

Unlike other law firms, we are dedicated to claimant-only work: our teams only ever act for the injured or mistreated person. We have never, and will never, represent employers or insurance companies – those who are responsible or pay out for injuries.  

To act for both sides would, in our opinion, undermine our ability to secure the best outcome for the tens of thousands of individuals who come to us each year seeking financial and legal redress from those responsible for their injuries.

We know whose side we are on and have pledged our commitment to injured people.
