Since 1987, members of the British Armed Forces have had recourse to civil military accident claims against the Ministry of Defence (MOD) for injuries sustained in accidents caused by negligence or breach of duty on the part of the MOD, whether it occurred at home or abroad.

Our client-focused personal injury service ensures that, where necessary, claimants are visited at home, obtain interim payments where viable, and receive the very best level of support to help them come to terms with their injuries, especially where these are life-changing and require major adaptations in day-to-day living.

What can you claim for?
By making a military accident claim with us, you can recover sums for pain and suffering, loss of past and future earnings, pension loss, treatment and rehabilitation costs, equipment costs, and costs of adapted housing.

Provided your accident or date of diagnosis occurred within the past three years, you are still able to claim. However, if it has been any longer than that it is probable that your claim will be time-barred.
