Standing up for you
Thompsons Solicitors is the law firm dedicated to standing up for you.
Unlike non-specialist high street lawyers or companies that advertise on TV, Thompsons Solicitors is committed to injured people – we have never, and will never, act for insurance companies or employers.
Since 1921, we have been standing up solely for the injured and mistreated. We are committed to working people and use our specialist expertise to support the injured, and their families, in every way we can.
What difference does this make to our clients?
Our ethos means that we are totally on the side of the claimant – the injured person – and committed to getting the best personal injury claim outcome for them.
Here are just some of the ways Thompsons Solicitors is standing up for you:
National strength in depth with local knowledge
For nearly 100 years we have been running and winning personal injury claims.
We have led the field acting in many of the high-profile, landmark legal cases with national significance which helped to establish key laws and principles, such as the Health and Safety at Work Act.
Our national clout is represented in our local specialist teams, and the work that they do. We believe that we employ some of the brightest and best personal injury solicitors the UK has to offer. Wherever you live, rest assured there will be a team of Thompsons’ personal injury solicitors nearby with local knowhow and the national backing, where needed, to win your case.
Fighting harder and longer
Thompsons has a history of fighting the cases that other law firms turned down, or failed to win. As a law firm acting only for injured claimants, we are able to take on cases that other personal injury solicitors won’t run against employers or insurers (who might also be their clients), and we are committed to seeing your case through to the best possible conclusion for you and your family.
Winning more compensation
As of February 2018, we had secured over £138m in personal injury compensation for our clients in just the previous two years. Our wins reflect our pledge to standing up for you and getting the maximum amount of compensation in the shortest possible time.
Empathy and expertise including links to charity and support groups
We understand that making a personal injury claim can feel daunting and our specialist solicitors are sympathetic and understanding when talking about your case. We pride ourselves on working alongside groups and charities that support people who have had personal injuries because we recognise that making a claim is only part of the process in recovering after an injury.
Specialist personal injury solicitors with recognised expertise
Don’t just take our word for it – we’re accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Solicitors and many of our personal injury experts rank highly in legal guides like the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.
Transparency about fees and costs
We believe that your financial circumstances shouldn’t dictate whether you are able to make a personal injury claim. That’s why we’re open and transparent about fees and costs from the beginning and have made a commitment to offering you better payment terms than many other law firms around.

Campaigning and changing the law for the better
Of course, we want to make a difference to our clients as individuals but we take our responsibility as a leading law firm seriously and that means whenever we can to campaign for changes in the law to better serve those who have been injured.
