You can make a military negligence claim for injuries suffered while serving with Navy, RAF, Army, Special Forces, Reserves. We understand that dealing with the MoD can be a daunting prospect, but our expert solicitors are experienced and will be on your side throughout the case.

How Much Can I Claim For a Military Injury Claim?
How much you are entitled to claim for an injury whilst serving with the military can vary from case to case – however, it’s generally accepted that the more life-changing an injury, the more you are likely to receive.
This is something that will be discussed with our specialists.
Can I Make A Claim Whilst Still Serving In The Military?
Yes, it has become a common myth that you cannot make a claim against the military whilst still serving, but this is completely false. In fact, as many claims have strict time limits, if you wait until you leave service, you may no longer be able to make your claim.
Just like any other employer, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has a duty of care to ensure their employees’ safety whilst at work. If they break this, then they are putting their employees’ lives at risk.
Any compensation money comes directly from the MoD and NOT your regiment.
