My noise induced hearing loss claim was put before both the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme and War Pension Scheme within the designated time periods, yet both proved unsuccessful. The MOD were fully aware of the extent of my loss and had provided hearing aids prior to final discharge, however, they deemed my degree of loss unworthy of recompense. It was then I contacted Hugh James solicitors and following two or three phone calls and some email correspondence, they were successful in securing a substantial monetary award on my behalf. I was kept up to date at each and every stage of the process, with each development and decision explained in detail. I had the same point of contact throughout the process, start to finish which personally meant a lot.



I would highly recommend Hannah Thomas, her level of communication was of a very high standard. I was constantly updated of any changes on my claim. by phone or email, and I was always asked about my thoughts on matters concerning my claim. Her communication skills are of a very high standard. I would highly recommend Hugh James solicitors to carry out any future business that I may have. A fantastic company and great team workers. Well done.

I contacted Hugh James after being unsuccessful with the AFCS. I wasn't aware I could bring a Civil case against the MOD for my hearing loss, but then I saw a Facebook advert and contacted them, with little hope of success. From the start, the process was pretty straight forward, and my solicitor was helpful and very knowledgeable throughout the process. I can't recommend these guys enough.

Hannah was extremely professional and courteous at all times. The route to claim was easily explained and we had constant communication. I would wholeheartedly recommend Hannah and her team.
