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

Philip is, like me, a Chartered Legal Executive and is believed to have secured a record award of its type from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). 

Philip acted on behalf of a Claimant who suffered a catastrophic brain injury when he was thrown across the room by his birth mother as a baby.  Philip secured an award of £5.85 million for the man, who is now aged 20, and suffers from significant physical and learning difficulties.  He has behavioural problems and is incapable of independent living requiring lifelong 24 hour care and support.

Claire Howard, head of our personal injury team, is also acting for a Claimant who sustained similar injuries when he was shaken by his birth mother's boyfriend.  Her client has likewise suffered significant head injuries, has visual problems, challenging behaviour and learning difficulties.   

Philip is keen to highlight to potential Claimants, and indeed other PI lawyers, that not all CICA claims involved a drunken scrap in the street between parties who may have criminal histories and that sometimes, as is proven with this claim, it is worth instructing a legal expert on a CICA claim.
