Armed Forces Claims | Military Injury Compensation | Irwin Mitchell

Our expert military claims lawyers will provide you with free initial advice on your compensation claim and with our No Win No Fee agreements there's no financial risk to you if you're unsuccessful*.

Members of the Armed Forces work in testing and dangerous environments, enduring both mental and physical hardship. If they are wounded, it is crucial that the medical care provided is of the high standard they deserve. Sometimes these medical standards are not met and the consequences can be devastating.

If you or a family member has suffered unduly as a result of medical negligence in the military, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation. Our experienced and specialist military injury solicitors can provide you with the expert assistance you need.

We fight fearlessly to achieve the best outcome to your claim, using our understanding of the Armed Forces and also of personal injury claims to ensure the process is as stress and hassle free as it can be, leaving you to concentrate on your recovery.

Proven Expertise In Military And Medical Negligence Claims

Members of the armed forces are entitled to the same standard of medical care and treatment a civilian would receive. This also applies to the families of service personnel who are treated by military doctors and nurses. If this medical care was inadequate, leaving you with an illness or in pain, you may be entitled to make a claim.

“They kept us well informed and made us feel part of the process. They made me feel like they knew what they were doing. I had complete confidence in them.” Brian, London

We have handled more medical negligence claims than any other law firm in the country. We’ll treat your claim with the specialist care and attention to detail needed and experience in these cases means you can rest assured that you are in the very best hands.

All too often cases of military medical negligence are left unreported, which can mean the doctors or nurses responsible are not held to account and can make the same mistakes again. By making a claim with us you can not only be compensated financially, but we can help you make sure that none of your colleagues suffer in the same way.

A Proven Track Record Of Success

Our specialist military injury team has helped injured service personnel from the Army, Navy and RAF. This track record of success has provided us with the experience we need to deal with the MoD, their insurers and their solicitors. Our experience of these claims, combined with the fact that we have ex-military personnel on our team, means we have a unique understanding of the military community.

We work closely with a number of Armed Forces welfare branches and organisations and we are the PAX appointed legal representatives under the PAX Personal Accident Insurance Scheme. We are also proud supporters of SSAFA Forces Help and are part of their Corporate Friends Scheme.
