Military Medical/Clinical Negligence

Military Medical/Clinical Negligence

We are one of the very few firms in the country that specialises in medical negligence in the military medical services. We have built up our knowledge of military occupational health matters, procedures and career structures over 25 years, and so are able to provide support for our serving and veteran clients that is second to none.

We know that many injuries that might be unusual in an NHS context can and should be familiar to military doctors, but are often missed. The result can be a lost career, both in service and in terms of the opportunities you then miss in civilian life if you have to leave early and at a lower rank that you should have been able to expect.

We also know how fit service men and women are expected to be, and what demands they make on themselves. Sometimes, however, if they are pushed too far it can result in injury, both physical and mental. Military doctors must to be alert to this possibility, and, if they are and they do their jobs as well as they should, they will save careers.

If, however, the military medics don’t look properly at how an injury or a condition can affect – or be affected by – your military duties, your health can be injured. Your career may even have been held back or, in the worst case, have ended in a medical discharge.

If this has happened, you need a solicitor with specialist knowledge of medical negligence in a military context, who is experienced in representing service men and women, and is sympathetic to their needs and concerns.

Types of military medical negligence claims include;

  • Neglected PTSD
  • Lariam claims
  • Compartment syndrome
  • Incorrect medical grading
  • Spinal problems
  • Orthopaedic injury
  • Medical Officer negligence

Our aim is to make the whole legal process easy and accessible for you. We are here to help you and your family at all times and we have an exceptional reputation for the quality of our service.
