Military – Injury Claims

James Murray Solicitors have several lawyers who are ex-forces.  James Murray himself is ex-REME and we have lawyers from several other regiments.

We have a huge amount of experience in personal injury claims and can bring it to obtain compensation  for members of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, as well as NAAFI and civilians staff at the Ministry of Defence.

Such claims are not confined to just personal injury claims for injury. Medical negligence compensation claims ar common against the Ministry of Defence (MoD) or associated defendants, such as a civilian hospital or the manufacturer of military equipment.

Claims can also include:

Medical negligence, including a failure to diagnose

Delays in providing treatment which worsen medical conditions and failures to observe medical limitations

So much of the work of the Armed Forces is physical, and so many personal injuries can result. These claims can cover a wide range of incidents for which compensation can be available :

  • injuries on exercise or operations
  • military accidents in workshops
  • injuries caused by defective or the wrong equipment
  • injuries from extreme cold (hypothermia)
  • poisoning from toxic substances
  • attacks by other forces personnel
  • assaults by civilians
  • road traffic accidents in forces vehicles
  • road traffic accidents involving civilians
  • Hearing loss
  • Criminal Injueies Compensation for the Military
  • Injuries on Training Exercises
  • bullying

The physical damage which military personnel can suffer which compensation may be available could be any sort of war theatre injuries from the most catastrophic to those less serious but which may nevertheless cause long-lasting symptoms or disabilities.

The psychological damage which can arise from military operations include post-traumatic stress disorder – PTSD – and all kinds of other psychiatric and psychological conditions and symptoms.
