GA Solicitors is proud to act on behalf of serving and ex-armed forces personnel, as well as their families, to provide necessary support related to any type of accident claim. This includes claims against the Ministry of Defence for injuries suffered during the course of service and where safety measures have not been followed.
Claims against the MoD can be complex and we understand the extent to which armed forces personnel rely on service benefits and earnings. We will make sure that, as well as your medical costs, the claim will consider the following when seeking compensation:
- Service earnings
- Civilian earnings
- Pension contributions or resettlement grant
- Commitment bonuses
- Specialist pay and allowances
- Service benefits, including loss of subsidised quarters and Learning Credits.
If you have suffered an injury during your service then you need the reassurance of knowing your personal injury solicitor understands all the relevant processes, and can expertly make a claim on your behalf. We have also signed the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant.
GA Solicitors has aided a number of servicemen and women, ensuring not only suitable compensation, but also assisting them to receive appropriate rehabilitation through its extensive network of experts and rehabilitation providers.
It is essential that you seek professional legal advice as soon as you are able. A claim should normally commence within three years of the date of the accident.
Having additional time allows our legal team to investigate the situation fully and determine any rehabilitation needs.
Additional advice should also be sought if you are considering making a claim under the tariff based Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS). The law does not allow for a victim to be awarded twice for the same injury so this could affect any claim that could be put through the civil court.
If you would like to discuss an armed forces injury suffered by yourself or a member of your family, please contact GA’s personal injury team by calling 01752 203500 or emailing enquiries@GAsolicitors.com,
