You may have been downgraded or medically discharged from service and if so, we recommend you contact us as soon a possible regarding a claim.
Our military deafness lawyers can offer you legal advice today, so call us on 01507 609027 now or submit an online enquiry form and one of the military deafness team will contact you to discuss your claim in more detail.
We offer free phone consultations as standard
We understand how difficult it is living with hearing loss and deafness, due to exposure at work and through no fault of your own. We aim to support our clients through the claims process with the minimum of stress and fuss, making it as simple as possible.
All claims start with an initial phone consultation, during which we will ask you a number of questions to help us to build a clear picture of your potential claim.
We will ask you:
- About your military career and your exposure to noise
- The types of hearing protection you were given
- When your symptoms first started
- Your medical history and if you have had any hearing tests
- How the MoD have treated you since your hearing has deteriorated
- Whether you have been discharged from service
- How you manage in civilian life and your symptoms today
If we believe your claim has good prospects of a success, our military deafness lawyers will offer to represent you in a No Win No Fee Claim against the Mod.
To speak to us, call us now on 01507 609027.
What is No Win No Fee?
No Win No Fee is a term used to describe a Conditional Fee Agreement or CFA, which is an agreement between a law firm and a client which outlines how a claim is funded.
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 up to that point.
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. We cap this fee at a maximum of 25% so it could be less. Our fees are mostly paid by the Ministry of Defence.
To discuss how our military claims are funded in more detail, please contact us today.
How much can I claim?
There are several factors with any claim that determine the eventual claim value, which includes the severity of your injuries and whether you have suffered financial loss in the form of lost earnings, the potential of future earnings and lost pension.
Over the years, our military deafness lawyers have helped countless clients claim compensation for their hearing loss and deafness.
We have helped individual clients settle claims for in excess of £600,000 and in total have helped claim millions of pounds in compensation.
Contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today for a free and no obligation assessment of your personal circumstances.
How long do I have to claim?
The law in England & Wales 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 to make a claim.
This 3 year limitation period can be complicated with military related cases and we urge you to contact us as soon as possible.
We have over 20 years of experience in personal injury cases and can advise you if your claim falls within this 3 year claim period.
