I used Hugh James for my hearing loss claim against the military, Paul Spiteri really helped me understand the process and was clear on the actions going forward. I understand these cases take time and the work Paul was doing in the background to get reports, medical opinions and recommendations really did help my case. Paul gave clear advice on the position we had and it ended in a favourable settlement in my advantage. I highly recommend Hugh James to proceed with military cases.

Peter W

Quotes

I went to Hugh James over two years ago from a recommendation from a friend, as I had tinnitus in my ears from my service with the forces. I then got assigned a caseworker, Mr Paul Spiteri. He talked me through the process, helping me to fill out the forms and kept me up-to-date with any slight changes to the case. The case was delayed slightly due to Covid, however, Paul was always keeping in touch and letting me know what was going on. Very happy with the service of Hugh James and especially Paul, definitely recommend them.

Wayne

Quotes

I contacted Hugh James after seeing their ad on Facebook. After a few years in the Army, I was aware of some hearing loss and was initially unaware that I could claim against the MOD for this. I contacted Hugh James, who, after numerous tests organised by Hugh James, confirmed I suffered from noise induced hearing loss. Throughout the process of the claim I was constantly kept up to date with developments of my claim by my solicitor, Mr Paul Spiteri, and always felt that my claim was a priority for him. Paul was always available if I had any queries and once a settlement offer was made he provided me with information and advice to make the best decision that suited myself and my family. I would definitely recommend Hugh James and in particular Paul Spiteri for their hard work and support in settling my claim. Thank you
