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

As we all use roads and pavements on a daily basis,  the thought of them becoming hazardous due to poor upkeep is very concerning. We are all aware of local authority budget cuts and the reasons for them, but this should not be at the expense of safety.


Under the Highways Act the Council and Highways Agency have a duty to maintain the highway and if they fail this duty due to the budget cuts this could leave them liable if people  are injured as a direct result.  If the fears of the NAO are proved,  we will all need to be more careful when driving on our roads and walking on the pavements .
