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 close friend of the late Ayrton Senna, he was first appointed race doctor by F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone in 1978 and went on to work within the highest echelons of the sport until his retirement in 2004.  Whilst unknown by few outside the sport he was instrumental in introducing many safety improvements in F1 and saved the lives of many grateful drivers over the years, including former world champion Mikka Hakkinen.

In 1992 he founded the Brain and Spine Foundation, a charity whose main objectives include raising the profile of neurological conditions and disabilities in the UK.  He was awarded the OBE in 1992 for services to motorsport.
