Solicitors for Military Discharge Compensation
Every year we speak to hundreds of military personnel who have been injured during service and subsequently discharged on medical grounds. We represent military clients from the Army, RAF, Navy and all of the Special Forces in claims.
Financial compensation for military discharge can be vital for clients who are unsure where to turn next, in civilian life. If your injury was caused by no fault of your own, you have a legal right to compensation.
- Military deafness
- Military hearing loss & tinnitus
- Non-freezing cold injuries (NFCI)
- Accidents during training exercises
- Military PTSD
With over 20 years of experience, we understand how stressful and upsetting being medically discharged from the military must be, especially if you had planned on a long term career in the military, which is why from our very first call we will aim to make the entire claims process as stress free as possible.
Call us for a free consultation
We offer our military clients a free and no obligation initial phone consultation, during which we will aim to build a picture of your personal circumstances. We will ask you about your injury or illness, your medical and employment history and the reasons why you have been medically 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.
How much can I claim?
Every military claim is different and the value of each claim will depend on the severity of your injuries and whether you have suffered any financial loss, which may include loss of earnings and pension.
Our lawyers have been responsible for several large compensation awards and have secured millions of pounds of compensation for our military clients.
- We have represented a member of the Army in a claim for hearing loss and secured an award of £615,000.
- We also represented another member of the Army for hearing damage and severe tinnitus and secured an award of £600,000.
The value of your claim may be lower or higher than these figures but if your injury has prematurely ended your military career, which has led to your ability to earn money in civilian life then the value of your claim could be significant.

How much does a No Win No Fee Agreement cost?
We do not charge our military medical discharge clients any up-front fees to get their claims started.
If we believe your claim has good prospects of success then we will offer you a Conditional Fee Agreement. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee agreement”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time.
For taking this risk, it is common for all law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a percentage of their compensation award. All of our other fees are paid by the Ministry of Defence.
