The law firm there for every worker

Some personal injury solicitors act for people injured in work accidents, while at the same time advising the employers and insurance companies who are contesting accident at work claims. But not Thompsons, we're different. Since 1921 we have only ever represented the injured worker - never the employer responsible for the injury, and never the insurance company trying to avoid paying out.

Why trust a claimant-only law firm?

Well we think there's something in the old saying 'you don't bite the hand that feeds you'. We have never understood how law firms could, on the one hand, act for injured workers who want to secure the maximum compensation possible, while on the other hand, also offer advice to insurance companies who defend claims. It just doesn't make sense to us. That's why we have our pledge, and that's why we are 100% committed to claimant-only work. if you've been injured in the workplace, and want a lawyer who is truly on your side - read on.

We understand that it's daunting. But we've been here before. Each and every year. Representing thousands of injured workers - and getting them the compensation they need to get back on their feet. We're there for every worker who is injured. That means you.

Compensation for every worker injured

Some people may feel apprehensive about making an accident at work claim. Maybe you feel put off by what insurance companies say in the newspapers about a “compensation culture”.

Maybe you’re worried about what your boss will say. It’s worth remembering that employers have a duty to keep their workforce safe: getting home safely at the end of the working day is your right. You shouldn’t have to apologise for making a claim. If you’ve been hurt at work because safety standards fell short, we don’t want you to feel embarrassed or awkward about making a claim for your injuries and for lost earnings.

Protection for every worker injured

You deserve to be protected from harm while at work – as does every worker. Making an accident at work claim draws attention to risks in the workplace that might otherwise go unnoticed, or unaddressed until something else bad happens to somebody else. You may, for example, have heard after your workplace injury took place that “that floor was always uneven” or “I knew that forklift was unsafe” – don’t you wish someone had spoken up before you’d been hurt?

By recording your accident in an accident book, speaking to a health and safety union representative and starting an accident at work claim, you could help to prevent others from suffering the same injuries in the future. Help enhance the protection for every worker, and start a claim.
