Military Injury Claims

We understand that being a Ministry of Defence employee is more than just a job for most but rather a way of life. This is why military injuries can have such a devastating impact on a person’s life and affect the entire family, and why compensation can make a massive difference in terms of paying for medical treatment and replacing lost income.

If you’ve been injured in training or action as a member of the Armed Forces, or suffered a personal injury in the workplace as a Ministry of Defence civilian employee, as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to make a military injury compensation claim.

Making Military Injury Compensation Claims

All employers, including the Ministry of Defence, have a duty of care to employees and are legally obliged to ensure measures are in place to prevent accidents and injuries.  If an employer’s negligence leads to a personal injury, a claim for compensation can be made.

Although members of the Army, Navy and Royal Air Force, work in far more dangerous work environments than most employees, there should be safety guidelines and rigorous training in place to avoid many accidents.

From May 1987, military staff are able to make personal injury claims for negligence. If you’ve been injured, and suffered psychological or physical pain as a result, you may be able to make a compensation claim.

Can You Make A Military Injury Claim?

Whether you work in a civilian role or in the armed forces, or are no longer employed by the Ministry of Defence, you can make a claim for compensation if you’ve been injured as the result of negligence.

Types of military injury claims include for:

  • ·        Sports training
  • ·        Faulty guns or combat equipment
  • ·        Accidents on a military base
  • ·        Combat stress
  • ·        Exposure to dangerous chemicals
  • ·        Defective safety products
  • ·        Loud noises and hearing loss
  • ·        Inadequate training or supervision

You may be able to claim through the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme in addition to making a separate civilian claim for personal injury compensation. Your claim may be against the Ministry of Defence or a third party, depending on the nature of your accident and resulting injury.

Military injury claims can be complex, which is why you should use a specialist solicitor to help you with your case.
