Clear Answers will become wholly owned by Thompsons.

Thompsons has a reputation for pursuing groundbreaking legal cases and for winning over £150m a year in compensation for injured people.

The Clear Answers site has very high search engine rankings and thousands of injured people use its service every year.

Carolyn Hurley, Thompsons' chief financial officer, said: "The acquisition of Clear Answers enables us to increase access for injured people to our legal services. Clear Answers is at the forefront of internet personal injury services. This will further strengthen Thompsons and assist the firm to continue to offer high quality legal services to trade unions."

All advertising, call handling and case conduct will be to stringent ethical and professional standards.
