Military Injury Claims

Thompsons' Armed Forces team has expertise in dealing with personal injury compensation claims for people injured during the course of their service with the Army, Navy and RAF.

Serving personnel can make civil claims for damages against the MoD if they believe they have been harmed as a result of negligence and should not delay seeking legal advice. It is your right – as with other workers – to be offered the safest possible environment in which to undertake your duties. We will work with you to establish the facts of the case and navigate the complex issue of combat immunity. 

Our specialist solicitors understand the complex nature of claims involving military personnel and have significant expertise winning civil cases against the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and helping serving personnel to navigate the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS).

We offer independent legal advice to military personnel on a variety of personal injury matters including exposure to asbestos; cold injury – including trench foot, hypothermia and frostbite; injuries sustained during training exercises; serious injuries caused by the negligent discharge of firearms, falls from height, crush injuries or military vehicle collisions.

Our military lawyers combine an unrivalled understanding of this very specialist area of law with a deep understanding of the impact these types of injuries have on members of the armed forces, and their families. We are proud to have representation on the Royal British Legion Solicitors’ Group and to regularly provide assistance to injured service personnel attending Headley Court.
