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

This is an annual event and among the attractions will be Hertfordshire's Firebike, which will be ridden by operational fire-fighters volunteering their own time who will attend motorcycle events throughout Hertfordshire to engage with bike enthusiasts. The initiative of the Firebike is to reduce the number of motorcyclists who are killed or seriously injured on the road. The focus will be to persuade riders to take responsibility for their own safety by taking post-test and advanced training, ensure their visibility to other road users, wear protective clothing and equipment, and adopt safe-riding attitudes and behaviour.

These volunteers are enthusiastic motorcyclists themselves and through their fire fighting role can be called out to road accidents as often as they are to fires. They see on a daily basis the sometimes tragic outcomes of riding a motorcycle and will use their experience to deliver safety messages to riders and their pillion passengers.

Hertfordshire's FireBike will be joined by 12 other Firebikes from around the country at BikeFest, as well as TT racer Guy Martin – who will be holding an open forum during the day, Mondo Enduro legend Austin Vince and stunt rider Marc 'Sparky' Chennell.

There will also be displays of police motorcycle riders and an armed response unit, as well as assessments and competitions run by Herts & Beds Advanced Motorcyclists as well as stalls, trade stands etc and the money raised at the event will be split between the Fire-fighters Charity, Help For Heroes, and towards making motorcycling safer in Hertfordshire.
