Hi all, I will try to be as brief as possible, in 2002 I had an accident whilst in Afghanistan. ever since then I have been suffering and am now on unpaid sick leave after yet another operation, this time i have had some bone removed from my spine and a herniated disc removed. I have been advised to contact the legion to process a claim for medical negligence. Now, I am no longer in the forces but i know how things work. I expect the process to be long and tough but there should be a reward at the end for my loss of earnings and pain endured. The question i have is.... shall i make the claim through the british legion or should i look at a civilian company like Thorntons or similar? Thanks in advance for your guidance, i have never done this before so just looking for the best options.
