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

Scars can range from the trivial, which can fade once the scar matures, to those which are significant and can not be covered up on a day to day basis. We have experienced that the effect of these scars is not only physical but that it can mar an individuals self-confidence and prevent people from wearing certain clothes or carrying out certain activities.

We are experienced in assisting, not only with obtaining compensation for the actual injury but by organising professional medical treatment to camouflage and minimise the appearance of the scars thus restoring individuals self confidence.

We can organise a free referral, on the recommendation of your GP, to a Camouflage Nurse. The service is funded by the British Red Cross and you would be referred to a nurse that is geographically closest to you. You will undergo an assessment to determine what camoflague make up products would work best for you.

We can then seek to include this cost as part of your claim to ensure that you have access to these products. We have successfully recovered this cost in cases. See our case study where we recovered £28,000.00 for a female fashion student who suffered extensive burns and pigmentation change to her upper torso following an incident at work.
