Solicitors for Military Injury Compensation
From the very first call, our solicitors will aim to make the process of claiming as stress free as possible as we understand that in many situations, you will have already experienced enough pain, stress and suffering as a result of your injury or medical condition.
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 in the military and whether you are still actively serving or if you have been medically discharged from your duties.
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 represent you in your claim.
How much does a No Win No Fee Agreement cost?
We do not charge our military 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. We cap this fee at 25%. All of our other fees are paid by the Ministry of Defence.

Types of Military Injury Compensation claims we can help you with
Our solicitors are able to advise you on a wide range of military related accidents and medical conditions.
We have years of experience in representing clients in the following types of claims:
- Accidents involving faulty weapons and equipment
- Helicopter and Aircraft Disaster Claims
- Noise Induced Hearing Loss Claims
- Non-freezing Cold Injury Claims (NFCI)
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Claims
- Training Accident Claims
Accidents and injuries caused during military service can often lead to military careers being cut short.
If you have been medically discharged due to a non-fault accident or injury then please call us today to discuss a new claim.
How much are military claims worth?
Every claim is different and the value of each claim will depend on 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.
For example, our lawyers have helped clients settle noise induced hearing loss cases for sums in excess of £600,000.
We have also helped clients with non-freezing cold injuries claim compensation in excess of £140,000.
The value of your claim may be lower or higher than these figures but if your injury has cut short your military career and your earning capacity in civilian life has been affected, then the value of your claim could be significant.
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 you can 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 period.
