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

We currently have a system in place in Civil Litigation called the Portal System. This is a system designed to speed up the litigation process by the openness of sharing of information for personal injury claims which are expected to settle under £25,000.

This was previously introduced for fast track road traffic accident claims only however, where it has become so effective it was expanded in July 2013 to include employer's liability and public liability claims that are likely to settle under £25,000.

It appears the process has caught on and the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority are now making the claims process to claim damages in respect of criminal injuries much easier by introducing their own customer portal for criminal injuries compensation claims.

"The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority is launching a customer portal. People applying online from 14 July may be invited to use it. From 14th July, those who register their application through the online application system may be invited to use our new customer portal. Our portal lets you send us information, including injury photographs, online. You can also download bespoke medical forms for your GP to complete"
