Who are BL Claims Solicitors

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

One very simple and so obvious tip though which is not mentioned in the article is not to forget which side of the road to drive on.

This is not even funny.  And this is easily done. I know I have. I remember that poor lady's face who watched me taking a roundabout the wrong way in Germany! It is actually her look that made me realise what I had done. I was lucky there as there was no traffic at the time. Since then I have become a lawyer and I have dealt with some nasty head on collision cases, simply because the driver forgot that he was not driving in England but in France.

I don't care how you make yourself remember, just do. You will not be able to live with yourself knowing that you have caused the death or another person. Right? Oh sorry, was it left?
