Who are BL Claims Solicitors

BL Claims Solicitors specialise in personal injury, clinical negligence and travel claims, providing our clients with hands-on support, nationally.

We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset

Possible explanations for this rise is that GP's are getting better at diagnosing symptoms but mental health charity Sane  believe this is due in part to the economic climate and people's financial  worries. 

I thought this was a really frightening statistic.  It has implications across society from a strain on NHS for treatment, employees sickness days, loss of productivity, as well as a negative effect on the family.
