Will I have to pay to claim military accident compensation?
We believe in justice for all, and especially for our forces personnel. That is why we offer No Win No Fee injury compensation in around 98% of cases. So you won't have to pay Claims Direct any money up front, as we will only get a fee when we win you rightful compensation. This guarantees that you are never left out of pocket.
Will I have to go to court for a military injury compensation claim?
Most military injury compensation claims are settled between Claims Direct's expert lawyers and the MOD or AFCS, and court cases are reasonably few and far between. In fact, you might not even have to come to a lawyer's office if you don't want to. That's because while we have offices all over the country, you can start your claim by telephone and post if that's easier for you.
What sort of military accident can I claim for?
While most combat injuries are excluded from compensation claims by 'combat immunity', some may be allowed if the MOD or one of the services failed in its duty to protect your health and safety where possible. There are also many military injuries that happen away from combat operations, including:
- Accidents in training
- Parachute injuries
- Defective military equipment
- Road accidents on manoeuvres
- Loud noises that cause hearing loss
So if you have suffered injuries or illness due to any of these things you should talk to us about making a military accident claim. We have a lot of experience in dealing with the MOD, as well as with the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS).
What sort of things can I claim for?
If you have suffered any injury that wasn't your fault, you may be able to make a claim for all of these things:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income
- Loss of future income
- Medical expenses
- Alterations to your home
When they're added together, all of these things can add up to quite a lot of money to help you recover from your injury and get on with your life as best you can. Talk to one of our friendly advisors about making a claim today on 0800 175 7900.
