If you are a teenager or the parent of a child that has been injured while attending Air Cadets, then you may be asking yourself the question, can I claim for an accident at Air Cadets? Young people in The Air Cadets Organisation (ACO) are at risk of serious injury if appropriate health and safety measures are not put in place due to the physical activities involved.

The Air Cadets are a force of over 50,000 young people across the United Kingdom. These young people usually meet twice a week and are involved in activities ranging from camps, drills, adventure training, target shooting and flying. There are also 11,000 volunteers assisting and supervising the Air Cadets. While the majority of these are encouraged to and are training in health safety, there can be occasions when an honest mistake or blatant negligence can result in you or your child suffering serious injuries.
Types of injury
Trips and falls during activities such as running and training are the most common injuries. You could make a claim if a climbing frame gave way and you suffered concussion, or you broke an arm after falling over a faulty structure or object that should not have been there. In some cases, injuries can be very serious and life threatening. These accidents usually involve aircraft. If your child has been flying with a pilot then it is a legal requirement that they passed fit for duty. If this was not the case, or if they should not have been flying due to a medical condition, then you can make a claim against the MOD for negligence.
Our expert solicitors will need a body of evidence to prove this negligence and to show how the injury has affected you and your family. For example, if you have had to pay prescription costs then you should keep the receipts to show these expenses. A no win, no fee* claim will be hugely beneficial as it will improve your financial situation so get in touch with us today.
