Accident Advice Helpline provides clients with expert army cadets accident advice if they have been injured during the last three years and the accident was the fault of another organisation or person. As a member of the army cadets, you are likely to face exciting, challenging and physically demanding activities on a weekly basis. If you are aged between 12 and 18, then these activities will help you to grow as a self-confident person, but there is also the risk of personal injury if health and safety measures are not enforced. Our expert solicitors can make a compensation claim on your behalf if you or your child were injured while attending army cadets. To talk through you compensation options, call our free 24-hour helpline.
Army cadets take part in a range of activities including expeditions, piping and drumming, annual camps, adventure training and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. The nature of these activities can lead to physical injuries. These injuries are often innocuous but there are circumstances when a serious injury could have been prevented. For example, if you were rock climbing and you were struck by a falling object then you could be disfigured for life due to scars and lacerations. The MoD would be liable if the soldiers supervising the activity failed to check the rock face beforehand. The amount of compensation depends on a variety of circumstances including the extent of negligence and the long-term impact of the injuries. You can call 0800 689 0500 to find out how much compensation your army cadets injury may be liable for.
Common injuries include trips and falls over misplaced items and objects, and wounds and cuts brought about by faulty equipment or structures. If your child was injured in any way and it was not their fault, then Accident Advice Helpline can provide legal representation. We are experts and have been assisting clients since 2000. The only evidence we require is witness accounts, photographs and other important details about the accident.
There are occasions when serious accidents result in fatal or life threatening injuries. These injuries can occur during more dangerous activities such as skydiving. You could claim against the MoD if they failed to ensure that the activity was organised properly. For example, they may have used an officer that was not sufficiently experienced or had not completed training to a sufficient level.
Making a claim

Making a claim with Accident Advice Helpline could help the family at adjust to those changes and fund any new equipment that may be needed for daily life.
