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

A young male driver, chatting away on his mobile phone, his left hand idly on the wheel holding a cigarette and his seatbelt hanging loosely by his right shoulder.  His passenger was sat ignorantly beside him.  If that young man's actions were to create utter carnage then I expect the law to deal with him swiftly and painfully.

No telephone call can be urgent enough that you can't leave it until it is safe to make or receive the call and, to drive without wearing a seatbelt is extreme folly. In a week where we have seen various heavy prison sentences handed down to careless and reckless drivers, let us all pay heed to the title of this blog; and drive safely.
