Helen Thomson



I specialise in helping individuals and their families following a serious injury or fatal accident; I have a particular interest in helping people who have sustained serious fractures or amputations.

My aim is to secure interim payments on account of a final award where possible, in order to assist with rehabilitation and aid with quality of life.

The Legal 500 have described our team as "extremely impressive".

Chambers and Partners have ranked our team in the regional top band, with a peer commenting that when it comes to high value road traffic accident claims, we are difficult to beat.

She is admired for "explaining complex legal issues in a clear and user-friendly way and is a very good listener." - Chambers & Partners 2016

Helen Thomson "gets to heart of the issues" and is "excellent at client care," market sources say. - Chambers & Partners 2015

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I attended work experience in a law firm whilst at school and found the work incredibly interesting and rewarding. From that moment, I knew I wanted to be a solicitor.
