Been Medically Discharged? We can help you Claim Compensation
If you have been medically downgraded or discharged due to military related hearing loss, non-freezing cold injury (NFCI), Military PTSD or due to a serious military training accident, we can represent you in a claim.
We offer our military clients a free and no obligation initial phone consultation, during which we will ask you about the circumstances that led to your discharge. We will take information about your injury or illness, your medical and employment history and the reasons why you have been discharged from your duties.
We will also need to look at your medical records, which you may have been given after your discharge. Do not worry if you do not have these medical records, we will write to the MoD and request these on your behalf.
If after we have spoken to you, and we have seen your military medical records, we believe your claim has good prospects of success then we will offer you a No Win No Fee agreement and be pleased to act on your behalf in your military medical discharge claim.
Common causes of Military Medical Discharge
Our lawyers advise dozens of military personnel each month in relation to potential civil claims for compensation.
Over the years we have advised clients on a range of injuries and medical conditions. Some of the most common causes of military personnel being medically discharged include:
- Hearing loss sustained in the military
- Non freezing cold injuries
- Psychological and PTSD related injuries
- Loss of sight
How long do I have to make a military discharge claim?
There are strict time limits involved in military claims against the Ministry of Defence. The law states that you have 3 years after an accident, or the date of a medical diagnosis or from when you first linked your symptoms to your work in which you are entitled to claim.
In military related claims, especially involving a medical discharge, the 3 year limitation period can be complicated which is why we recommend you contact us as soon as possible to discuss your potential claim.

Can I claim on a No Win No Fee basis?
Yes, we fund all of our military medical discharge claims using No Win No Fee Agreements.
After we have taken some initial information from you, if we believe your potential claim has good prospects of success then we will offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.
So, how much does it cost to claim?
We do not require you to pay us any upfront fees and it is us that takes all of the financial risk, not you.
If your claim fails to reach a successful conclusion, we are not paid and you do not have to pay any of our fees for our time spent working on your matter up to that point.
For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a percentage of their final compensation award. All of our other fees are paid by the Ministry of Defence.
To discuss how our military medical discharge claims are funded, please call us today and we will be happy to answer your questions and to help you with your claim.
