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

At present this is not compulsory and owners do not have to pass a test to ride one or hold a licence.  At Blake Lapthorn we have dealt with claims against mobility scooter riders when pedestrians have been injured. The only way of being successful in these cases has been when the mobility scooter owner has home contents insurance that covers claims against the policy holder.Parliament is currently considering whether there is a need for mobility scooter specific insurance. The DVLA are strongly advising mobility scooter owners to take out cover.
