How can our NFCI Solicitors Help?
Our NFCI Solicitors represent clients across England & Wales in claims against the MoD.
Every new enquiry starts with a free consultation, so we can build a picture of your personal circumstances and advise you on the prospects of a successful claim.
We will ask you:
- About your military career
- Your exposure to cold and wet conditions, usually during training
- When your symptoms started and how they were treated
- Whether you have been downgraded or subsequently discharged
If our NFCI Solicitors believe that you have good prospects of bringing a successful claim against the MoD, we will offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.
Call us on 01507 609027 or complete the form on this page and our solicitors will contact you at a convenient time.
What is No Win No Fee?
A No Win No Fee Agreement is how we fund all of our military related personal injury claims.
No Win No Fee Agreements are known in the legal world as Conditional Fee Agreements. 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 law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a percentage of the client’s NFCI compensation award at the end of a successful claim. Our basic fees are mostly paid by the MoD.
To get your claim up and running, we do not require any upfront fees so contact us now to see if our team of expert NFCI Solicitors can help you with your claim.
How much compensation can I claim?
It’s almost impossible for us to give you an exact figure as to how much compensation you will be due as there are several factors that we have to consider in the claims process.
The value of your claim will depend on the severity of your symptoms, whether you intended on a long career in the military and have subsequently been downgraded or medically discharged, your ability to work in civilian life and whether you ever make a full recovery.
Rest assured, the NFCI Solicitors at Nigel Askew Solicitors have over 20 years of experience in helping our clients win compensation for injuries and medical conditions that they have developed through no fault of their own.
Examples of NFCI claims we have settled
We have helped clients who have contacted us with NFCI enquiries, unsure of whether their circumstances would lead to a successful claim, secure compensation for their NFCI injuries.
- We represented a member of the Navy claim over £300,000 for his non-freezing cold injury. He was not provided with the correct PPE during underwater training exercises and went on to develop a serious NFCI. He was medically discharged from his duties and suffers symptoms to this day.
- Our solicitors also represented a member of the Army claim over £146,000 for his non-freezing cold injury. He was exposed to extreme conditions during training exercises in the Brecon Beacons and not provided with the correct PPE. He went on to develop a NFCI and was medically discharged from his duties. He suffers from NFCI related symptoms to this day.
Every claim for a non-freezing cold injury is different and the value of your potential claim could be worth less or considerably more than the examples above.
