    Can I claim for an accident at Army Cadets?


    If you or a family member has sustained serious injuries while attending Army cadets you may be wondering, ‘Can I claim for an accident at Army Cadets?’ Accident Advice Helpline provides a range of services to individuals that wish to make a claim against a negligent third party. If someone was to blame for your injuries, then we can provide expert legal representation and advice. Our experienced team of solicitors can make a compensation claim to recover the costs associated with your injuries. You should not have to suffer in silence, so call our 24-hour free helpline to see how we can help.

    Am I able to file a claim?

    You can make a personal injury compensation claim for any injury that was the fault of another person or organisation. Young people understand that physical activities such as adventure training, sports, and shooting carry certain dangers and any resulting injuries are often innocuous with nobody to blame. However, this is not always the case. For example, if you used equipment that was defective and it resulted in you sustaining injuries then you can make a claim with Accident Advice Helpline. Army cadet supervisors have a duty of care to protect teenagers. If you think that they have failed this duty of care, then you could be owed a significant sum. The amount of compensation you receive always differs and is dependent on the severity of the injuries sustained and other factors.

    You must have been injured in the last three years to make a claim. You must also have received some sort of medical assistance from medical staff for those injuries. Confirming your eligibility for compensation is a simple task. You can visit our website and answer a few short questions, call us from a landline on 0800 689 0500, or text ‘claim365’ to 88010. Our friendly advisers will help to determine your claim eligibility and answer any questions you might have. There is no obligation to make a claim if you call, and all conversations are confidential.

    Required evidence

    The Ministry of Defence (MOD) will be liable if the negligence of an individual has caused a serious accident at Army Cadets. The army cadets employ thousands of volunteers, all of whom prioritise personal safety and typically complete health and safety courses. Sometimes this is not enough as serious accidents can still take place. Common injuries usually include trips, falls, and slips, but can extend to more serious and life threatening injuries. For example, you may now be wheelchair bound after sustaining a serious back injury in a skydiving accident. If someone was to blame, then you can start the no win, no fee* claims process today.

    We will need evidence to support your case to improve the chances of a successful outcome. Witness accounts, photographs, and all the important accident details should be noted down and kept in an ‘accident file’ on your computer. If you were forced to take time off work, then we will also require financial documents to show this.
