FAQs about Military Injury Claims

There is a time limit for making a personal injury claim. This is usually 3 years from the date of accident or injury, or 3 years from when you first became aware of your condition. This is called the date of knowledge.

In all cases, because of arguments on time limits, it’s important to get specialist legal advice as early as possible.

Witness evidence is crucial in military accident and injury claims, so it’s important to get this evidence as soon as possible whilst witnesses have a clear memory of the accident or event.

You’ll get a free initial consultation about your situation and if we can we’ll take on your case on a No Win, No Fee basis.

If the MOD admit partial or full responsibility for the accident, we can ask for an Interim Payment to be made. This could help you with any financial pressures or to pay for any medical care you may need now.

Any Interim Payment will be deducted from your final compensation payment.

To make an armed forces medical negligence claim, it needs to be proven that the standard of care provided by one or more military medical personnel fell short of what you’d reasonably expect, and that you suffered negligence as a result.

Common medical mistakes include:

  • Poor record keeping
  • Failing to administer medication
  • Not performing surgery to the required standard
  • Misdiagnosing a condition or diagnosing it too late
  • Failure to communicate adequately or at all with the Chain of Command, leading to inappropriate physical demands in the course of duties, leading to an aggravation of the injury

Mistakes made by military doctors, medical officers or nurses can have severe consequences for service personnel, such as:

  • Physical disability
  • Psychological damage, such as anxiety, depression and PTSD
  • Existing injuries being made worse
