Military Claims and Armed Forces Compensation Scheme

Our solicitors have recovered millions of pounds in compensation for injured members of the military. If you have worked for the Armed Forces and been injured whilst working you may be able to make a claim.

Our team have vast experience in dealing with these types of claims. Many injuries are catastrophic and life changing with often permanent injuries requiring a long stay in hospital and long term rehabilitation. We understand the long term effects of these injuries. We will help you recover the maximum compensation for your injuries and financial losses. We have recovered millions of pounds in compensation for injured members of the military.

Our experts can provide immediate free legal advice and rehabilitation support. We have links with local and national physiotherapists and chiropractors.

We have lawyers on the Law Society’s Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme, Members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the Motor Accidents Solicitors Society (MASS).

Civil Claims

Members of the armed forces who have been injured in an accident are able to pursue a claim against the Ministry of Defence, subject to proving fault.

There are no limits on the amount of damages that can be awarded in a civil claim.

Personal injury compensation claims through the civil courts must be started within three years of the date the injury was sustained, or three years from date of knowledge of an injury.

Please note the position is different if pursuing only a claim through the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme, whereby a military injury claim following an accident must be made within seven years of the date of an accident or, where there is latent damage, within three years of the date of knowledge.
