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 am writing to express my thanks for all the hard work you Cheryl and Tracy put into achieving a satisfactory outcome to my case. From your first contact I felt at ease and was impressed by the professionalism shown during the process. I hope not to need your services again in the future, but rest assured if I or members of my family were to be placed in a similar situation you would be the first person I call."

  • "Thank you so much for my cheque I am so grateful to you… I cannot thank you enough…thanks for your help and hard work."

  • “Both my mum and I want to thank you for your professionalism and dedication. Despite the difficult circumstances of going through a claim, I felt reassured and supported the whole way. Thank you for also being a pleasure to work with!"
