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 are now going into the age of driverless cars which we are told will reduce the number of car accidents - but what happens when there is an accident? The owner cannot be at fault as he/she does not have control of the car, so who is? 

On reading a recent article Google, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo have all said that they will accept responsibility when their computers are at the wheel. 

This is great for the consumers who buy autonomous cars but as none of these three companies sell autonomous cars to the public, how much further forward are we?

BL Claims Solicitors are here to help

If you would like to talk to someone and discuss a potential claim please call us on 0344 620 6600 anytime between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday, or if you would prefer you can email us at info@blclaims.co.uk
