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 from 1st October 2012 where a company is visited by the HSE and found to be breaking Health and Safety laws the company can be charged by the HSE for the time and expense that the HSE have incurred in identifying the breach, investigating it and helping the company put it right.

This is known as a Fee for Intervention – FFI.

The HSE and the government felt that it was right for these companies rather than the taxpayer to meet the costs. It is hoped that this will also act as a deterrent to those companies who consider flouting the law, and encourage them to make sure that they comply.

More information is available from the HSE website as to how this will work in practice.
