Case experience

Workplace assault: Clare acted for a special needs teaching assistant who sustained injuries after being assaulted by a student. The employer had failed to act despite her informing them of violent threats made to her by the student. As a result of the assault she suffered injuries to her neck and back, as well as psychological trauma, and eventually left her job. Clare was able to secure significant compensation for the client after a three-and-a-half-year legal battle and two days in court.


“Thank you very much for the support, advice and help you gave me during my claim. It was a very difficult time for me and you helped me through it all with your contact and support, it was very kind. Thank you,” – a UNISON member.

“From the very outset, I found that Thompsons Solicitors are the most caring and helpful legal team I could have wished for. I was guided in clear terms as to how to proceed and they were with me each step of the way. I found that nothing was too much trouble for Clare Nash and the Team (Cardiff), and I received a response each and every time I had a query, no matter how trivial it may have seemed. A very professional service to say the least and my utmost and unlimited thanks for a successful outcome,” – a PCS member.
