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

What I do is represent those who have been injured through no fault of their own and at the hands of someone else's negligence.  Most people who have been injured do not know where to turn and if it was not for Claimant personal injury lawyers they would have no one to help them.

The Government is already insistent on making changes to 'no win no fee' arrangements.  Which will narrow, in my view, access to justice for those who can little afford it.  There are also proposed changes to health & safety law, lowering the bar for employers.  Yes, we are all only too well aware that employers carry a heavy burden, particularly in this economic climate.  But so do employees or, should I say, ex-employees.  They have lives to lead and families to feed.  Only too often I see employees losing their jobs as a result of an accident at work. 

Of course we all work in a world where common sense should prevail, but it is right that employers' duty to their staff remains strict.  In the real world, an employee does what is asked of them.  They are often too afraid not to; ironically they might lose their job.  Or that is at least their fear, even if ill founded.

A lowering of the bar will inevitably lead to cost savings for employers, but at what risk to the employee?

This is only my opinion of course.
