The MoD owes you a duty of care
The MoD owe you a duty of care to ensure you are not at risk of sustaining an injury during your service and they are required to provide you with sufficient PPE to help protect you against injury or illness.
If the MoD fail in their duty to provide you with sufficient PPE and a safe training and working environment then they may be deemed negligent and in breach of this duty.
How to claim for a No Win No Fee Accident Claim
Every new claim starts with an initial phone consultation with one of our team.
During our consultation we will ask you questions to help us build a picture of your accident, your injuries and your potential claim against the MoD.
The questions we will ask you include the following:
- About your military career, your injury, illness and symptoms
- The PPE that was provided to you and whether that was fit for purpose
- When you first reported your symptoms and how you were treated
- Whether you have been downgraded or medically discharged from service
- How you are today and how your injury or illness affects your day to day military or civilian life
After speaking with you and reviewing your medical records, if we believe you circumstances have good prospects of success then we will offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.
What is a No Win No Fee Military Claim?
All of our military claims are funded by Conditional Fee Agreements. These agreements are commonly referred to as either a “CFA” or a “No Win No Fee Agreement”.
The nature of these No Win No Fee Agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim is unsuccessful for any reason (liability or medical grounds for example) the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time spent up to that point in the claim process. For taking this risk, it is common for all law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a percentage of the client’s compensation at the end of a successful claim. We cap our % fee at 25% of our client’s damages.
If you have any questions about no win no fee agreements and how your claim will be funded then please contact our experts, we will be happy to discuss this with you.
