Military & Army Claims
Suffering any form of injury whilst under the employ of the Armed Forces can spell disaster for the careers of personnel. Injuries sustained whilst on duty are inevitably more severe and can often lead to a semi, or permanent withdrawal from service. Military accident claims are understandably on the rise as more Armed Forces Personnel are called up by the Ministry of Defence, however, not everyone may qualify for compensation. If you were employed by the MOD prior to 1987, the Crown Proceedings Act unfortunately prevents you from making a claim. If, however, you were employed after this time, you may be entitled to recompense for injuries and/ or loss, if it can be proven that negligence contributed to the injury sustained.
Military accident claims may be made for:
- Faulty or defective equipment
- Post-combat psychological trauma/ Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Common assault
- Road traffic accidents
- Medical negligence
- Injuries caused during routine training/ exercise
- Injury caused overseas within, and outside of conflict zones.
Military accident claims cover a variegated array of injuries and illnesses that may not be included above.
