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.

A firearm or ballistic injury 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.

Gary Boyd, the partner in charge of Gorvins’ military injury department, is an acknowledged expert in the highly specialised field of military claims including those related to firearm/ballistic injuries including by way of examples:

  • A claim for a soldier who was shot by a colleague as part of a ‘trick gone wrong’, resulting in life-threatening injuries as the bullet passed through several vital organs, resulting in a medical discharge
  • A claim for a soldier who again was medically discharged after being accidentally shot through the arm by a colleague during a military exercise
  • Claims for Armed forces personnel injured during mortar training
  • Noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus resulting from the use of firearms/ ballistics

Gorvins’ military personal injury department has the knowledge, experience and contacts (with barristers, medical and other experts, etc) to provide a nuanced and holistic service to our military clients who have sustained firearm/ ballistic injuries. This allows us to provide a service which includes not only maximising compensation for injuries and losses, but also securing appropriate rehabilitation and support.
