RoadPeace is delighted to announce a new partner in our mission to provide access to justice for crash victims, with Thompsons Scotland the latest leading law firm to join our Legal Panel.
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland are Scotland’s leading Personal Injury law Firm. Natalie Donald, Personal Injury Lawyer at Thompsons Scotland says:
‘Since lockdown began, and staycations became a routine part of all our lives, many of us have become aware of just how dangerous some road networks in the UK are. Some will argue that Scotland is the most beautiful part of our Kingdom, but that is equally matched by the danger of its roads’ network. The very geography of Scotland means its highways are treacherous and unpredictable. Catastrophic road crashes are common in Scotland given the very nature of its roads, many of which are single track.
Some of Scotland’s most popular tourist routes often top the infamous league of the UK’s deadliest roads. Governments and local authorities have made improvements over recent years but driving around Scotland’s beautiful landscape still carries significant risk.
I feel truly honoured to have been approached by RoadPeace. As beautiful as Scotland is, our road network is one of the most dangerous in Europe. Many people during lockdown and staycations will have experienced this first hand. When people are involved in a collision they need compassion, empathy but also a clear legal mind to fight their corner no matter what. This is what I will bring to RoadPeace. I look forward to working with the charity’s team that is made up of truly remarkable and committed people. “
Nick Simmons added;
