Military compensation claims

An overview of the military compensations claims that we deal with.

Life in the military is not for the faint hearted. It can be dangerous, demanding and challenging. However, while it is a high-risk job which carries a greater possibility of sustaining injury compared to most other professions, service personnel still have the right to expect an appropriate level of training, equipment, and support in order to carry out their role.

When injury or illness could have been prevented then there may be grounds to pursue a military compensations claim. To find out where you stand simply contact our free helpline for a case assessment.

We deal with a full range of military compensations claims, including:

  • Combat PTSD claims
  • Compartment syndrome
  • Faulty equipment claims
  • Military training claims
  • Non-freezing cold injuries
  • Camp Lejeune water contamination cases
  • Military hearing loss claims
  • Lariam (Mefloquine) anti-malarial claims
  • Heat injury claims
  • Air accident claims
  • Inquests and fatal accidents

To enhance your chances of making a successful compensation claim, we will obtain supporting evidence, such as your military and medical records.

The compensation claimed will take into account medical expenses, lost earnings, pensions and other benefits, on top of damages for the injury itself. We can also recover funds to contribute towards counselling and rehabilitation.

Claims can be made by those who are currently serving or who are veterans with the Army, Royal Air Force, Navy, Special Forces, including reservists.

We can also assist with applications to the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS). This Scheme is designed to provide compensation, irrespective of fault, across the full range of circumstances in which illness, injury or death has arisen as a result of service. It does not affect your right to make a civil compensation claim based on an allegation of negligence.

We offer a free case assessment service and are able to work on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Please contact our free confidential legal helpline to discuss your case further. Call freephone 0333 888 0404 or email us at [email protected]
