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

When you are having fun the last thing you want is to sustain injury. Many people at this time of year overindulge with alcohol and are therefore less careful. So when you are out at your Christmas party or out in the town, you will need to keep your eyes open to avoid spillages, and disregarded packaging from presents, which could result in a slip, trip and fall.

With alcohol some people can become aggressive for no reason. So if this happens walk away - being assaulted before Christmas could ruin the celebration for you.

Eating out is also lovely at Christmas, but not so lovely if food poising is caused by undercooked contaminated food. So be careful and if it looks undercooked - avoid it, if it doesn't taste right - don't finish it!

Now the lovely gifts we give and receive. These can also be a major cause of injury when the gifts/products are of poor quality or poor workmanship and are not suitable for the purpose which they are meant for.

So, hopefully you will all have a wonderful, fun, and safe Christmas, but if you suffer an injury from any of the above through someone else's negligence you may be entitled to compensation.
