“We found BL Claims to be very effective at explaining the process and what was required of us all through the case.”
Because our team has some of the best clinical negligence lawyers in the country, some of which are dual-qualified nurses, midwives and doctors we are able to understand the complexity of a clinical negligence claim while being sensitive to the issues involved.
You may need financial support immediately to help cover costs of lost earnings and medical expenses, or to find someone to help your rehabilitation. That's where we can help, by making your claim as easy as possible. You don't have to know about the law or the medical terms. All you need to do is tell us what happened, provide any evidence you may have and let our lawyers do the rest.
Please note: Legal action must usually begin within three years of the date that the incident occurred, or the date on which you had knowledge that you had suffered injury as a result of medical negligence. However, there are some instances where different rules apply concerning those without mental capacity. We will advise you.
As clinical or medical negligence is a specialist area of law, you need expert lawyers to assess accurately the chance of your claim succeeding and what level of financial compensation you may be entitled to. Our top-rated team has experience in all types of medical negligence claims - in particular:
We are approved by the Law Society's Clinical Negligence Accreditation Scheme as well as our affiliations and accreditations from leading bodies including:
“The team at BL Claims showed true professionalism but with a human and caring touch which we very much appreciated and which helped us through a very difficult time, we are truly grateful.”
“They always kept me in touch with all aspects of my case, taking the time to explain all the procedures involved. Whenever I had any query no matter how small, they took the time to explain things, often in a phone call. That personal touch made all the difference, I was made to feel part of the team fighting my case. With this in mind I would recommend their services to anyone!”
