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

Roads Minister Mike Penning says that many new drivers are terrified of motorway driving because they do not have the skills or confidence needed and he believes that the extra training should also bring down the cost of insurance premiums for new drivers.

I agree with his first point and appreciate that we must introduce learner drivers to motorways (under strict supervision) before they are able to take their driving exam. I don't however believe premiums will come down. Insurers are only interested in profit.

Some say that the risk is too great.  It is not.  Put simply, we all need to SLOW DOWN, stop taking risks, drive in the correct lane (this is aimed at you middle lane hoggers), use our indicators and mirrors, heed the advice of warning signs...need I go on?
