No win, no fee Military Injury claims
Be represented by a military injury lawyer at no upfront cost to you. Under our No Win No Fee agreement you only pay a pre-agreed percentage of the compensation awarded if your case is successful.
Anyone who suffers injury or illness caused by their military service is entitled to compensation, but it is important to seek expert legal advice and ensure any damages claimed for are fully reflective of the impact of suffering and loss experienced.
If you or a member of your family has suffered injury by serving in the Armed Forces, or if you have lost a loved one in service, you have a right to seek compensation.
Specialist military injury solicitors
Hudgell Solicitors’ dedicated team of military claims solicitors are experienced in securing compensation for members of the British Armed Forces who suffer injuries and illness caused through serving in the British Army, the Royal Navy, the Royal Air Force and the Reserve Forces including those who may have been affected by water contamination at Camp LeJeune.
Our team has many years of experience in supporting people injured from serving in the military and will consider the full details of your individual case to provide clear advice as to the best route to claiming suitable compensation.
Our lawyers will discuss two possible legal routes to claiming compensation for injuries and illness caused through military service.
The Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS)
- Lump sum damages up to £650,000.
- Compensation irrespective of fault.
This Government scheme, managed by Veterans UK, offers set amounts of compensation for injuries, illness or death either caused or made worse by military service, either on or after April 6 2005.
It is open to all current and former members of the UK Armed Forces and claims can also be made in respect of a lost loved one due to an incident whilst they were in service.
This scheme offers ‘lump-sum payments’ for pain and suffering, with the amount of compensation awarded dependent on the severity of the injury and impact on the individual’s everyday life and ability to work.
Military injury compensation claims
- Claims against MOD for Negligence.
- Uncapped damages.
In some cases the Ministry of Defence (MoD) can be held responsible and ‘at fault’ for failing in its duty of care, leading to physical and mental injuries.
Such claims have no set compensation limit, unlike the AFCS scheme, so our lawyers will consider the merits of your case and the impact it has on your future life, when advising on the best legal route to pursue.
Specialist lawyers from our clinical negligence, serious personal injury and injuries abroad teams will be instructed to act on your behalf and provide their expert experience to run your case.
