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

AvMA,  Action against Medical Accidents, is a charity set up in 1982 to help improve patient safety and to achieve justice for individuals and their families, where mistakes have been made. The charity has been involved in numerous very important campaigns during the last 30 years, including the need for a legal duty for candour amongst the medical profession (Robbie's law), the Alder Hey Hospital organ scandal and more recently the inquiry into Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust.

We as a firm have had the privilege of working with the charity over many years, and the clinical negligence team in particular is of course extremely supportive of its aims and objectives.

The Gala Dinner incorporated a number of moving accounts from families who have been helped by the charity and an art auction as well as an impressive dinner for the hundreds of guests in attendance, including medical professionals, barristers, solicitors, representatives of sympathetic charitable organisations and of course, members of families who have been and continue to be supported by the charity.

Blake Lapthorn was represented by lawyers attending from our Southampton, London and Oxford clinical negligence teams, and everyone seemed to have a great time. I myself had a very enjoyable and interesting evening, and took the opportunity to chat with many fellow professionals in the field, both old and new acquaintances.

Many thanks to the organisers of the event and I look forward to continuing to support the charity going forward for many years to come.
