Our track record of success

The solicitors at Pierre Thomas have a strong reputation for recovering compensation for people injured in the UK, Europe, and worldwide, from minor injuries to fatal cases and those involving severe brain, spinal or other injuries.

Recent examples of cases include:

  • Obtaining £20,000 for a client after her hand was bitten by a dog on a campsite in France.
  • Arranging rehabilitation for a French person and organising a multitude of examinations after he was hit by a car while walking in the UK, sustained a serious brain injury and remained with significant symptoms preventing him to resume work.
  • Secured a €14,000 compensation for a biathlete involved in a cycling collision with another cyclist in France resulting in a broken leg.
  • Successfully settled the claim of a young Frenchman, who was a pedestrian hit by a car in England and suffered a brain injury which affected his career prospects. Liability was disputed throughout (under English law) and the claim settled three weeks before trial for the global sum of £600,000 after a split of liability.
