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

The local council, which is Test Valley, has reminded people that small amounts of cement bonded asbestos can be disposed of at their Household Waste Recycling Centres. Larger amounts do need to be removed by a reputable removal company.

The dangers of asbestos exposure are now widely known and it is really disappointing to hear that people are not handling this dangerous material in a proper and safe manner and are placing others' health at risk by doing so.

The Council is appealing for anyone with any information about the dumping to come forward. If you have any information please do contact the Council's Environmental Service on 01264 368000 in confidence.
