Military Claims


Serving with the Armed Forces is a dangerous job. It has a known element of risk which is understood when signing up. However, the MoD, like any other employer, has a duty to protect your health & safety and minimise risks, such as providing you with adequate training to do the job at hand and ensuring that you are provided with the necessary equipment to do your job safely. Perhaps you have been injured in a non-combat situation, on a training exercise or in civilian setting.


If you are a current serving member you may be worried about making a claim and how it effects employment...The MoD must adhere to strict health and safety regulations like any other employer, your employment will not be terminated or any prejudice held against you if you make a claim for physical injuries. Please give me a call, any discussions we have are completely confidential and I can tell you the viability of your claim.


Some common types of injury claims:-

  • Serious injury, such as brain damage or disablement

  • Hearing loss

  • Accidents during training

  • Disease or illness

  • Faulty or defective equipment

  • Road Traffic Accident involving a military vehicle

  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)


We also deal with claims and appeals for War Disablement Pension and Armed Forces Compensation Scheme


You may be able to claim War Disablement Pension if you’ve been injured or disabled:

  • during a time of war

  • as a result of service in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces before 6 April 2005


You can’t claim if you’re still serving in the Armed Forces.


You may be entitled to Armed Forces Compensation Scheme if you’re injured, or have an illness as a result of service in the Armed Forces on or after 6 April 2005.


What next?

The next step would be to give us a call. At PJW Law we are here to support you and explain each step of the process it takes to start a claim. We feel that such matters are best talked about either face to face or ear to ear. Make an appointment or give us a call to have a chat to us about your situation. The initial consultation is always free with absolutely no financial implication for you.


What does it cost?

If you ask us to deal with a military claim we will discuss the fee arrangements clearly and carefully before asking you to sign our terms and conditions.


“No Win No fee” is usually the best option for clients, although other fee arrangements are available. All of which will be explained at your first free appointment.


There are no “upfront” fees, no hidden charges. If you lose the case you pay nothing at all.
