Mr W was injured in 2010 whilst on basic training in the armed forces. He was blindfolded and undertaking a trust exercise when he was knocked unconscious sustaining a mild traumatic head injury and  in 2012 began to suffer with epileptic seizures.

It was the view of our medical expert that on the balance of probabilities the head injury in 2010 had resulted in seizures in 2012. He was medically downgraded and his future career in the armed forces is affected indefinitely. Mr W's condition is now managed with medication but he is reduced JMES of Medically Not Deployable (MND). His medical status has fallen below that of the entry requirements for employment and to be eligible for promotion and further service.

We were able to secure him a six figure sum to provide financial security for his future.
