Military injury claims
Stewarts has more than 25 years’ experience representing seriously injured service personnel.
The Ministry of Defence, like all employers, owes a duty of care to its employees to take reasonable care of their health, safety and welfare while at work. Military accidents can take many forms because of the dangerous nature of the work our service personnel perform, but often arise from:
- An unsafe working environment
- Inappropriate or faulty equipment
- Inadequate or improper training for the task
- Incidents occurring during military exercises or adventure training

Stewarts is one of the leading firms in the UK representing clients who have suffered life-changing injuries.

We have lawyers with specialist knowledge of military claims involving;
- Accidents at home and overseas

Soldier agrees settlement following burns accident while serving in the Army
In 2015, ABX was serving overseas when she sustained full thickness burns to 40-54% of her body, including her face, chest, both upper limbs and legs following orders to fight a range fire.
ABX transferred her claim from another solicitors’ firm to Stewarts in January 2019.
The damages we secured for ABX will allow her to purchase and adapt a home for life and to receive ongoing case management and support for the remainder of her life.
Testimonial from ABX – “Stewarts were brilliant. They were everything I needed, and I haven’t got a bad word to say about the firm. I got along with Warren immediately – I’m not sure if it was because of his military background but I just felt at ease. It was really important for me to get on with the person I was working with during my case.”
