Military deafness claims
We have particular expertise in claims involving military deafness. Our Solicitors advise hundreds of military personnel every year relating to deafness and tinnitus claims.
We offer all new military deafness enquiries a free initial phone consultation, during which we will build a picture of your potential claim.
During our initial phone consultation, our military deafness solicitors will ask you a number of questions about your military career, your exposure to noise and the types of hearing protection you were offered. We will also talk to you about your deafness and how it has impacted on your career and whether you have been discharged as a result.
To enable us to advise you on the prospects of your claim we will need to review your military medical records, so please tell us if you have these to hand otherwise we will write to the MoD on your behalf to obtain them.
We need to review your military medical records so we are confident that your claim will succeed and not fall outside the 3 year claim limitation period.
What does limitation mean?
The law in England & Wales states that a compensation claim can be made within 3 years from the date of an accident or 3 years from the date a client first linked their deafness symptoms with their work.
This 3 year claim period is also commonly referred to as the “limitation period”.
It does not matter if you were exposed to noise more than 3 years ago; many of our clients were first exposed to noise 10 or 15 years ago, the important thing is that you have started a claim less than 3 years after you were first told that your hearing difficulties may have been caused by your work.
If you are unsure if you can claim, we recommend you call us now on 01507 609027 and speak to our military deafness solicitors, who can offer you the highest standard of legal advice.
How much can I claim?
This is one of the most common questions that we are asked and unfortunately it is difficult for us to give a definite answer due to the fact every claim is different.
We have helped military clients claim over £600,000 in deafness claims against the MoD, but much depends on the severity of your hearing loss, whether you have been medically discharged and whether your ability to earn money in civilian life has been affected due to your deafness.
To discuss your potential claim, call Nigel Askew Solicitors today on 01507 609027.
Will my deafness claim be a “No Win No Fee”?
Yes, we use No Win No Fee agreements (also known as Conditional Fee Agreements) to fund all of our military claims, including military deafness claims.
How much does a No Win No Fee cost?
We do not require you to make any upfront payments to start your claim.
If we believe your potential claim has a good chance of succeeding then we will ask you to enter into a No Win No Fee Agreement with us, so we can represent you in your claim.
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, all law firms in England & Wales agree with a client that they will be paid a percentage of the final compensation award. This is payable at the end of a claim and deducted from the compensation won on your behalf.
Law firm’s basic fees are mostly paid by the Ministry of Defence.
