Being in the armed forces is demanding and sometimes dangerous; serving personnel are dedicated and committed, often working in difficult circumstances and they deserve to have the best equipment, training and management to enable them to do their job safely. Regrettably mistakes are sometimes made and accidents happen; unfortunately these can have far reaching and devastating consequences. If things do go wrong, remember serving personnel have the same rights to be protected and compensated as other working people.
The most common causes of injury for serving personnel are inadequate equipment, inadequate supervision and management and mistakes made by colleagues. The nature and extent of any injury will vary but they can be life changing. At Harris Fowler we have experience in dealing with all types of injuries for military personnel including significant limb injuries resulting in amputation, spinal injuries, noise induced hearing loss, freezing and non-freezing cold injuries and psychiatric injuries including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The Ministry of Defence has a duty to keep personnel safe (if it can) and to reduce the risk of accident and injury. Most of the time this happens but we are here to help if things go wrong.
Making a claim
At Harris Fowler, we have a team of lawyers who are dedicated, military claim specialists with considerable experience of handling claims. We understand the nature of military duties and have an impressive track record, recovering significant amounts of compensation for our clients.
We will work to make sure you get the financial, medical and practical support. We know it’s important to get that provision early on in your claim to maximise your recovery.
Understandably you will want an idea as to what your claim might be worth. Every case is different but if you have been discharged from the services because of your injuries you may well be entitled to a significant award to compensate you for your injury and loss of career including the loss of your valuable pension rights.
We recommend that you take action early on if you think you have a claim and remember you can make a claim whilst you are still serving.
Friendly and approachable
At Harris Fowler, we offer an efficient, friendly, client centred service with outstanding results. We only work with the best barristers and experts and expect the same high standards from the other people who work on your case as we expect from ourselves. We will take the time to understand what you are going through, helping you get the answers and the compensation you deserve.
Harris Fowler has over 20 years’ experience of dealing with military injury claims throughout England and Wales.

We will offer to work for you on a no win no fee basis, with no hidden charges and we will fund expenses which have to be paid as your claim progresses.
