Will Aid Participating Solicitor graphic size 206x84We are pleased to announce that we are once again participating in Will Aid.

We will waive our fee for drawing up a basic Will and instead invite our clients to donate to the Will Aid group of charities. The suggested minimum donation is £95 for a single basic Will and £150 for mirror Wills.

The money raised is shared by the nine Will Aid charities and is used to transform the lives of people in the UK and around the world.

Will Aid has raised over £15 million since its launch over 25 years ago and an estimated £95 million has been pledged as legacies by people making their Will through the scheme. The campaign is proud to have helped more than 275,000 people to write a proper Will with a professional solicitor.

Having an up to date and properly written Will is the only way to be sure that your money and possessions will be distributed according to your wishes. It is also the only certain way to avoid difficulties for your relatives and friends after your death. By making a Will with Will Aid you will be protecting your loved ones’ future and helping to raise money to support the vital work of the Will Aid charities.

Thompsons successful in asbestosis claim

16/11/2015

Mark Jackson

Thompsons SolicitorsWe recently acted for a client in connection with a claim for asbestosis.

Our client had been employed as an electrician at a local power station but had retired in the early 1990’s.  He later developed chest symptoms and ultimately, following our involvement, was diagnosed with minimal asbestosis. Fortunately this has very little impact on his day to day life or life expectancy – he is now in his late 70’s. However we were able to successfully negotiate settlement in the sum of £25,000.00 on his behalf.

If you believe you suffer from chest symptoms (pleural plaques, asbestosis or asthma) as a result of your employment, or have had a diagnosis made, we have the experience to guide and advise you in pursuing a claim. Please contact us for initial advice.
