Do you have a Military Injury Claim?
If you have a military injury claim we can help.
We at Ringrose Law understand that if you suffer an injury whilst on or off duty it can be a very distressing and traumatic experience not only for yourself but for your family as well, particularly if these injuries happen whilst you are serving overseas. As well as being physically injured, members of the armed forces can also have concerns about their future health and what impact this may have on their future career and family.
We understand how demanding service life can be and believe that injured armed forces personnel deserve the best support, medical care and compensation.
What can we do to help if you have a military injury claim?
Most armed services personnel are informed that they are unable to bring a claim for compensation against the Ministry of Defence until after they have left the services. This is not the case. If anyone has suffered an injury whilst serving in the Armed Forces they must bring a claim within three years of the date of the accident or injury as is stipulated in the Limitation Act 1980. If you do decide to pursue a military injury claim again the Ministry of Defence whilst you are still serving this will not affect your military career.
