A corporal in the army who suffered horrendous injuries while serving in Iraq has used the compensation she was awarded afterwards to rebuild her body and her life.

When Hannah Campbell was injured in Iraq she received several severe injuries. These included being shot in the stomach, sustaining a severe injury to one hand, and injuries to her left leg that could not be repaired, leading to an amputation. A pole also went through her face which left her blind in one eye.

Despite all this damage she has now bounced back and undergone thousands of pounds worth of surgery and cosmetic treatments. She has a new prosthetic leg that is incredibly lifelike, not to mention ‘make-up’ that has been permanently applied by way of tattooing. The money came from the six-figure compensation sum paid to her by the Ministry of Defence for the injuries she suffered in the mortar attack. After the injuries she suffered back in 2007 she was confined to a wheelchair, during which time she put on weight. Part of the cosmetic treatment she opted for was a gastric band to help her get back to her original weight. Hannah says it is the best money she has ever spent.

What are the consequences of being injured in Iraq?

Soldiers can suffer extreme injuries as a result of being hurt by mortars, bullets and IEDs – otherwise known as improvised explosive devices. Hannah’s story reveals just how severe those injuries can be physically, but of course there are many emotional injuries that can be sustained as well. These can all last for many years, leaving the person a shell of their former self in some cases. Even those who recover can still be affected long into the future in various ways.
