Staying fit and in good health are fundamental in military service. And whether you’re injured in training, or wounded in action, the Armed Forces will do everything to get you back to fighting condition as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately, even when you’re in the best military or civilian medical care, mistakes do happen. Your condition may be wrongly diagnosed – or missed altogether – and your treatment may be delayed or mismanaged. In such cases, you might be able to make a claim for medical negligence, and obtain compensation.
At Forces Law, we have a unique combination of legal expertise and inside knowledge of how the Services work; unlike most civilian lawyers, many of us have spent time in uniform ourselves. That means we understand issues like career and promotion structures, Armed Forces pensions, housing arrangements and so on, all of which need to be built into your compensation claim. And it works: over the years, we’ve obtained settlements for serving and former personnel and their families, ranging from a few hundred pounds to payouts running into millions.
Making a medical negligence claim takes time; and in legal cases, as in all things, time is money. We’ll advise you on the potential cost, and talk about working on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, so we share the risk with you. Because when we say we’re on your side, we really mean it.
It’s important to remember that the law sets strict time limits on medical negligence claims. So if you think you may have a case, please get in touch NOW. You can call us on 0845 601 1260 – lines are open all day, every day – or email firstname.lastname@example.org
