If you've been injured while off duty in an accident that wasn't your fault, or you've been assaulted, our solicitors may be able to help you claim compensation.
We understand that service personnel have different needs when making a claim. Concerns about loss of service benefits, pay and allowances following an injury are common, and we'll ensure that all these things are considered when pursuing compensation on your behalf.
Insurance companies often have limited knowledge of the value of a lost service career, so without specialist military lawyers to accurately value your claim, it could be settled for less than you’re entitled to.
We've represented service personnel who have been in a number of different kinds of accidents, including:
In some instances – such as injuries sustained at a gym or service-approved sporting event – it may be possible to claim from the
Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS). Our specialist solicitors will be able to advise you on who we will need to claim against for your injuries.
Our lawyers are also experienced in claiming through the Criminal Injuries (Overseas) Compensation Scheme, which is a specialist scheme for service personnel (and their families) who have been assaulted abroad.
If you’ve been injured in an off duty accident while serving in the Army, Navy, RAF or Special Forces you may be able to claim compensation. You may also be able to claim if you were injured while serving in the Army Reserve (formerly the Territorial Army), Navy, RAF or Special Forces Reserves.
We have the largest personal injury team in the UK, claiming over £1 billion in the last two years alone for our clients. No matter the injury, and no matter the circumstances, you will be met with compassionate, practical advice that puts your well being first.
