Understand Your Rights
As a member of the military, you have the right to be provided with the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure your safety during training or operational duties. If you have suffered from non-freezing cold injuries (NFCIs) as a result of not being given the correct PPE, you may be eligible for compensation.
Seek Medical Treatment
If you suspect you have an NFCI, seek medical attention immediately. Early treatment can prevent the injury from worsening and help with the healing process. Make sure to document all medical visits and treatments, as this will be important for your claim. As part of the claims process, you may be required to attend medical appointments to assess the extent of your injuries. These appointments will be used to determine the amount of compensation you may be entitled to.
Notify Your Commanding Officer
Notify your commanding officer of your injury as soon as possible. This will ensure that your injury is documented and will be included in your military medical records.
As part of the claim process and to make a successful claim for an NFCI, you must prove that the MoD was negligent and gather evidence to support your case. This can include medical records, witness statements, and any other documentation related to your injury.
The military experts at Nigel Askew Solicitors have many years of experience in successfully winning compensation on behalf of military clients, so contact us now to start your claim.
Time limits for claiming
There are strict time limits involved for claims involving NFCI, usually 3 years from the date that your symptoms started, or 3 years from the date that you first linked your symptoms with your exposure.
So, how much can I claim?
There are a number of factors that typically affect the value of military NFCI Claims.
It is difficult for us to define exactly how much your claim may be worth without understanding the severity of your symptoms, whether you have been medically discharged from service and to consider your employment prospects in civilian life, with your ongoing NFCI symptoms.
Some of the most recent successes our solicitors have had with representing members of the military in claims involving NFCIs include:
- We secured over £300,000 for a member of the Navy who was discharged from service as a result of developing a NFCI. He was not given correct PPE during underwater training and developed a serious and painful NFCI which prevented him from carrying out his naval duties. He now works in the hospitality sector and suffers symptoms to this day.
- We helped a member of the Army to claim compensation of £286,000 for his NFCI. He was exposed to extremely wet and cold conditions during training exercises in Scotland, without being issued with the correct PPE and footwear. He was subsequently medically discharged from service. He suffers from NFCI symptoms to this day.
The NFCI Claim amounts above are recent real cases that we have settled on behalf of past clients. Your claim may be worth less or significantly more, depending on your circumstances.
