Military Accident Claims
Working in the armed forces is an inherently dangerous job, putting your life on the line to protect our nation and loved ones. Unfortunately military personnel don’t just suffer injuries on the front line, many are injured in a wide range of different circumstances including:
- Training accidents and unsafe working practices
- Injury caused by unsafe or defective military equipment
- Injury from unsafe or defective military accommodation
- Fatal Accidents
- Road Traffic Accidents
- Clinical Negligence
What’s involved in making a claim?
The first step is to get in contact with us, we will give you a free initial consultation and should be able to tell you whether we can help in one call.
We will make sure you’re happy to proceed and will talk through the no win no fee agreement with you. As well as telling you a little more about the service we will provide you with. If you’re happy to go ahead we will contact the responsible party and speak to them on your behalf – letting them know that you’ll be making a claim for your injuries and damages.
We will then begin the process of fully investigating both the circumstances of your accident and the extent of your financial losses. During your claim, your lawyer will keep you up to date throughout the process.
Start your claims process now by calling our team of solicitors on 0800 1123 156 or completing an online enquiry form.
How much compensation could you receive?
All claims are different and there is no way of accurately predicting how much your case could be worth until we find out more details about your claim. But our specially trained personal injury solicitors will ensure that they take every possible cost into account when negotiating your claim. Some of these include:
- Loss of earnings from time off work
- Future loss of earnings due to halted career progression
- The care you’ve already received
- Adaptations that may need to be made to your property or vehicle
- Travel expenses
- Treatment costs
How long do you have to make a claim?
Standard procedure applies a strict three year time limit from the date of the accident or diagnosis of medical condition. The sooner you start the process of making a claim after an accident the better. Witnesses and evidence from your accident will be much easier to find closer to the event than two and a half years later.
Anyone who is under the age of 18 at the time of the accident has until their 21st birthday to make a claim. There are a few other exceptions to the three year limit which are:
- Psychological trauma – if the accident caused a serious brain injury and is a loved one if making a claim on their behalf, then there is no time limit for making a compensation claim.
- Manufacturing or design fault – If the equipment you were using had a fundamental defect, the time limit may be increased.
- Overseas work accidents – Accidents that take place overseas may result in the time limit for making a claim being shorter depending on the circumstances.
How does a no win no fee agreement work?
You’ve probably heard the phrase no win no fee used before, they are also known as conditional fee agreements. They are simple, you won’t have to pay a penny win or lose. We guarantee that you will receive maximum compensation for the injuries you have sustained and you will pay nothing, win or lose.
We understand all of this might make you worried about incurring hidden costs. We assure you there is no hidden costs, we instead secure our payment from your opponents insurers when we are successful with your claim.
In the unlikely event that we lose your no win no fee personal injury claim we promise we will still not charge you a penny. We have insurance policies that cover us in these circumstances. We don’t like to be negative but it’s important you have a full understanding of how a no win no fee agreement works.
