How we can help you

If you serve in the Armed Forces, just like any other employer, the Ministry of Defence is legally responsible for making sure that you are provided with safe and suitable equipment, given proper training and competent properly trained colleagues who do not put you at risk.

Our sympathetic lawyers will get to the truth about what went wrong and fight for the right level of compensation. Where needed, we know how to bring about changes to procedures to spare others from anguish in future and to gain an apology.

Armed Forces Compensation Scheme

The Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) provides compensation, irrespective of fault, across the full range of circumstances in which illness, injury or death may arise as a result of service. We can also advise you on making a claim through the Scheme, and where necessary can appeal their decisions.

Types of Military Claims

You or a loved one may have a case for compensation if you have suffered an avoidable injury in the course of duty over the last three years. This could be due to a number of reasons, such as:

  • Training exercises and operations abroad
  • Faulty or inadequate equipment
  • Traffic accidents
  • Poor training
  • Air accidents
  • Poor medical care
  • Inadequate response to post traumatic stress disorder
  • Negligent downgrading
  • Hot or cold conditions
  • Assault, bullying and harassment

You can make a claim for compensation while you are still serving in the Armed Forces and you do not need to wait until you leave. Making a claim for compensation while you are still serving will not affect your military career.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

The MoD must put in place sufficient measures to treat those that are affected and should be alert to the signs and symptoms, including for instance anger and alcohol problems. This debilitating condition can severely affect your quality of life and have a very negative impact on your finances, earnings and future mental health.

If you have been involved in a traumatic event whilst in the military, and you are now suffering from PTSD, you should contact us for advice on making a personal injury claim for compensation.

The financial compensation that you may receive will be awarded to assist with the distress and pain you have suffered. Our specialist Personal Injury team is skilled in this complex area of law and we can get the answers needed to build the best possible case for compensation.

If you’ve suffered an avoidable injury during military service, you need to be compensated. Call us today or fill in our enquiry form and we will call you back.
