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

Kym Provan trained with the firm and qualified into the Clinical Negligence team in 2004 as a specialist clinical negligence solicitor. She was promoted to senior solicitor in 2008 and senior associate in May 2013 for her excellent management skills and contribution to developing the firm's standing in this specialist sector.

Kym, based at the firm’s Southampton office has been a keen contributor in developing and expanding the BL Claims Solicitors website from its start, writing regular blogs, article and case studies and encouraging others to do so. Her work on the site has led to numerous inquiries, referrals and work. Kym is listed for the first time in Chambers 2014 as a 'leader in her field' which is a significant achievement in just under ten years.  She is described as an "extremely capable star associate" and as being "straightforward and very efficient, with an excellent manner".

Kym has successfully pursued claims for clients with a wide range of injuries, against individual practitioners, NHS Trusts and private hospitals such as her settled case against the NHS Trust for £42,500 in relation to a client who suffered a ruptured tendon from a dog bite, which was left undiagnosed.

Last year, Kym organised a successful 'Trekathon' in aid of the Southern Spinal Injuries Trust, persuading a team of 12 from the Personal Injury Practice Group to hike over 26 miles. Together they raised over £2,500 for the charity, as well as media coverage in local and business press, raising the profile of the firm and practice area.

Stephen Murfitt, the firm's Chairman and senior partner commented: "I would like to congratulate Kym on her well-deserved promotion.  It's again very rewarding to see a former trainee develop their potential with the firm.  Kym has excellent professional, team management, and business development skills. I wish her every continued success in her role as partner."
