Military Claims Advice

If you’ve been mistreated in the military, or have been injured due to failings by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), you may be considering bringing a military compensation claim.

As well as helping pay for rehabilitation and lost earnings, a claim can help hold the MOD accountable – and it could be crucial in helping protect your fellow servicemen and servicewomen from further harm. But the rules for making a claim can be complicated, and it’s probably not something you’ve ever had to think about before.

We’ve put together a series of military claims advice pieces to demystify the process, helping you learn more about how it all works and what making a claim against the military might involve:

  • I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the assistance and support you have given to me during this time. As you are aware i have had dealings with numerous lawyers over the years throughout my business and personal life.  It's without question that you and your company are the best I have ever dealt with and I will have no hesitation in recommending you to others.


  • I contacted multiple solicitors when searching for someone to represent me.  The professionalism of the BBK team stood out instantly.  They kept this professionalism throughout the whole case, which lasted a number of years.  Special thanks goes to Ben Pepper for managing my case.  He kept me well updated, well advised and was a pleasure to deal with.  I would recommend Ben without hesitation.
