Slater and Gordon Lawyers
“Our specialist lawyers have expertise in handling inquests and fatal injury claims; claims for asbestos related conditions; catastrophic injuries including limb loss, head and spinal cord injury; non-freezing cold injuries; hearing loss and tinnitus; clinical negligence; mental health problems including PTSD and cases involving assault, bullying and harassment.
The team work nationally and while many of our cases arise from incidents in UK territory, we have successfully settled many cases arising from an injury that occurred at sea and abroad.
Our military specialists understand the complexities involved in claims for loss of military career or chance of promotion and have settled numerous cases involving injury-related medical discharge for six-figure sums.
Recent settlements include a pay-out of £450,000 for an ex-soldier who sustained damage to his hearing during infantry training in Catterick necessitating his discharge; £335,000 for a Royal Marine who sustained multiple orthopaedic injuries in a rock climbing incident abroad; and £200,000 for a private who sustained a non-freezing cold injury during JNCO cadre training resulting in the end of his army career. Each preserved their AFCS and GIP payments.
In addition to handling your legal claim for compensation, we are on hand to help our clients claim under the non-fault Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) which covers all regular and reserve personnel whose injury, ill health or death was caused by service on or after 6 April 2005.”
