Changes to Personal Injury Claims

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

That is all about to change for personal injury claims.

As from 1st April even if a claim is successful, the person bringing the claim may have to pay up to 25% of their damages in legal costs as these will no longer be paid in full by the other party or their insurers. This applies in particular to claims funded by a 'no win no fee' agreement (Conditional Fee Agreement).

The cut off date of 1st April applies to the date when the 'no win no fee' agreement is signed by the Claimant and the solicitor.

Therefore the important message is – if you have been injured in an accident and are considering bringing a claim you must ACT NOW and speak to a solicitor before it is too late and you risk losing some of your damages.
