What we do

Clear Answers, the brand, is part of Thompsons Solicitors, the UK's most experienced personal injury law firm.

Thompsons Solicitors work to

The early years

Founded in 1921 by WH Thompson, the firm initially was primarily involved in Civil Liberties cases.

Post war the firm experienced a period of rapid growth, based largely on its excellent reputation for providing the best advice possible. During this period, the solicitors dedicated their expertise to providing high quality representation and maximising compensation through innovation and commitment.

More and more personal injury and accident compensation cases were brought for injured people through the appeal courts and the prospects of success began to improve. It was due to this that the Factories Act Legislation to protect workmen began to take shape.

Test cases

Thompsons fought numerous test cases in relation to industrial diseases of many kinds, helping to set the law on issues such as limitation.

The law made from the cases pursued by Thompsons:

Countless test cases fought by Thompsons in every type of industrial disease injury, but specifically on securing the right to compensation for millions, continue to resonate today. More than anything, the battles Thompsons fought, forced employers and the insurance industry face up to the cost of injuring their workforce and made them provide a safer environment for all. These test cases also highlighted the scale of the problem of safety at work, encouraging the government to pass more and better regulations.

International Influence

Ongoing fight

The battle is never won. As the world around us changes, so different risks and hazards appear. Unhappily there are many thousands of workers suffering today from hazards to which they were exposed sometimes decades ago. For example, asbestos diseases take many years to manifest themselves.

Thompsons continue to campaign to prevent and avoid hazards and through fighting test cases secure compensation and change the law.

The firm continues to be actively involved in exploring new areas of law to secure and protect the rights of employees and continues to pursue ground-breaking litigation for the victims of industrial disease, including Asbestos exposure and mining-related conditions.

Additionally Thompsons is involved with international issues, using their expertise in the field of industrial disease to help, for example, South African miners and their families to win a landmark settlement.

Thompsons is committed to representing those who suffer injury and their families to maximise compensation for the loss suffered.
