By the very nature of their chosen careers, members of the Armed forces, fighting gallantly in many theatres, often sustain serious injuries of all types including but not limited to the following list:
Owing to the requirement for high levels of fitness, both physical and mental, members of the forces can often have their careers curtailed, through medical downgrading and/or premature medical discharge, following injury. This can be a devastating experience because members of the forces are often unable afterwards to enjoy comparable careers, not only in terms of remuneration and benefits but also the camaraderie and the rewarding and exhilarating nature of serving in the Armed Forces.
At Gorvins, we passionately believe that Armed Forces personnel and veterans should be afforded the respect and treatment they deserve for their service and sacrifices. We have the knowledge, experience and contacts (with barristers, medical and other experts etc.) to provide a nuanced and holistic service to our military clients. This service from our military claims solicitors includes maximising compensation for injuries and losses and also securing appropriate rehabilitation and support.
We have a wealth of experience, not only in pursuit of civil claims against the Ministry of Defence and other parties, but also Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (‘AFCS’) claims and Criminal Injuries claims.
There are a variety of strict time limits for claiming compensation which varies depending on the nature of your injuries and the circumstances surrounding the accident. With this in mind, we suggest contacting Gary Boyd – our dedicated military claims solicitor – as soon as possible to discuss your circumstances.
If you would like to make a claim, you can call us on 0161 930 5117 or send your enquiry into our team via the online contact form.
