We recognise the monumental commitment, and sacrifice, that our soldiers, and their families make, and we passionately believe that injured Service personnel deserve the best medical care, rehabilitation and support. To make that happen, they need to receive the best injury compensation.
Due to the wide, and varied scope, of different military roles; injuries and accidents can occur in a myriad of ways, both on-duty and off-duty. The type of accident, and injuries sustained, will determine whether or not you’ll be entitled to make an armed forces compensation claim.
How Does This Happen?
Our expert armed forces solicitors have overseen a variety of military injury claims for injured members of the army, navy, and RAF.
Some of these injuries were caused by:
- Road traffic accidents
- Equipment failures
- Training exercises
- Sports and adventure training (including assault courses)

We will assess the present impact of the accident, or injury, on your health, as well as any future implications; such as loss of earnings, costs for therapy, treatment and care.

By working in this way, we are able to achieve the greatest possible success for your claim, so that it supports you both now, and in future.
Where your injury comes as a result of an accident, which isn’t your fault, you may also be able to make a civil claim as well as claiming through the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme.
