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

In an era that extols the virtues of green and healthy living, data compiled by The Times shows that twice as many cyclists have been killed on Britain's roads in the past decade as the number of British soldiers killed in Afghanistan or Iraq.

The article goes on to say that 1,850 cyclists were killed or seriously injured on Britain's streets in the first half of last year alone.  That is a shocking statistic (do I hear the cry 'ambulance chasers'?) and is one that must be addressed. 
Road users need to learn to co-exist, especially car and lorry drivers.

We (I am a driver and a cyclist) don’t own the road.  Surely someone has the right to be able to cycle to and from work, safely, don’t they?
