Military Accident and Injury Claims

Military Accident and Injury Claims

If you or someone you know are a member of the British Armed Forces (incorporating the British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force) and have suffered an accident or injury, either during combat or whilst off duty, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has overall care and charge of the British Armed Forces, which incorporates the Army, the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force, and as such, it is the MoD that has ultimate responsibility for all Armed Forces personnel.

To speak to a solicitor experienced in perusing military accident and injury claims, call 0333 331 4802 today and an experienced member of our personal injury team will be able to advise you about claiming compensation.

Making a Claim for a Military Accident

Although the elevated risk of accident and/or injury associated with the armed forces is known by those who sign up, inevitably things can and do go wrong. Accidents that occur and are not the fault of the injured party, may give rise to pursuing a compensation claim against the Ministry of Defence.

Accidents can occur in any number of situations, for example:

  • Training exercises which go wrong (explosions/falls);
  • Vehicle accidents whilst on training exercises;
  • Bullying and harassment;
  • Post-traumatic stress / combat stress;
  • Defective equipment which causes injury.

Sustaining an injury of any nature is distressing, particularly when the accident was not your fault.  Many injuries arising from accidents connected to the Armed Forces may be extremely serious and will have many potential life changing consequences to your future career, your future health and finances.

Here at Farleys we can help you firstly by liaising with the MoD to establish responsibility for your accident and more importantly we can help you swiftly receive the medical attention you require to get you back to the position you were in prior to your accident.

How Much Compensation Will I Receive for my Claim?

The amount of compensation you are likely to receive will depend very much on the individual circumstances and the accident itself. Based on our past experience in pursuing military accident claims, we are likely to be able to advise you at an early stage as to the potential level of compensation.

The personal injury team at Farleys will ensure that you receive what is rightfully due to you for not only the injury you sustained, but for any other financial loss you may have incurred.  Such losses may include but are not limited to:-

  • Loss of earnings;
  • Loss of pension;
  • Loss of future earnings;
  • Any private medical costs i.e. physio/operations;
  • Prescription costs/medication costs;
  • Expenses for any other people requiring to look after you following your accident;
  • Travel costs to and from hospitals etc.
