Legal 500: “Paul Rosser handles a range of personal injury cases deriving from accidents at work and on the roads.” 

Susan Ward, the wife of one of Thompsons’ former serious injury clients, said: “Paul was sensitive to how matters affected us individually and made it possible for our claim to be progressed with minimum upset to my husband.  

“Our case was not straightforward and Paul explained all the detail to us in a way that we could understand. We had worries at the start of the case regarding “no win no fee” by rogue firms. I can happily confirm that Thompsons is not one of these firms.”
