    Five potential injury claims for a British Army member


    Being a British Army member is always going to be a dangerous career – everyone knows that. But for those who work in the services being a soldier is an everyday job with the potential for accidents in the workplace just like any other.

    Whether it’s on exercises or around the barrack,s work accidents happen and here are just five potential dangers faced by service men and women every day.

    1. Uneven surfaces are a danger to anyone, wherever they work, but in the army there is always a chance that you will face the danger of slips, trips and falls due to difficult terrain.
    2. Lifting heavy objects is second nature to those in the army due to the type of work they carry out, but handling objects and equipment can easily lead to a repetitive strain injury claim.
    3. Handling machinery is a dangerous activity in any occupation, and due to the nature of the equipment used in the military, work accidents are very easy to come by.
    4. Logistics plays a huge part in the military as equipment and people need to get from A to B and because of this there is always a high risk of road traffic accidents, meaning servicemen and women will always be at risk of serious injury whilst in transit.
    5. Repetitive strain injuries are very common among people who work in a physical environment and this certainly covers those in the armed services. Gruelling physical work and using heavy machinery will always mean that repetitive strain injury claims are common.

    If you are a member of the British Army and have been injured at work you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
