    Military and MoD compensation claims

    Military and MoD compensation claims

    Like any employer, the MoD has a duty of care to its employees, and you have a right to expect them to minimise risks and protect your safety when not in direct combat. You should also be provided with suitable equipment and training to carry out your duties when in combat, and you have the right to demand compensation for injury and suffering caused if you were not at fault.

    Military compensation claims

    During MoD and military compensation claim cases, interest from the media can occur – this is just one reason why you need an experienced, professional team of compensation lawyers on your side, and where Accident Advice Helpline can help. Our team are personal injury compensation specialists and will provide guidance and assistance through every stage of your claim, so there is no need to feel nervous.

    Types of injuries and claims

    Military service is a physical role, and there are many common causes of personal injury whilst serving in the Army, Navy or RAF; these could include:

    • Aviation incidents
    • Adventure training or assault courses
    • Parachuting
    • Equipment failures
    • Road traffic accident involving personnel
    • Training exercises
    • Fires and explosives
    • Vehicle-related incidents
    • Clinical negligence

    We are happy to offer confidential, no-obligation advice to any military staff who have been injured as a result of their duties, and our friendly, sympathetic team are here to take your call – so just ring us for a chat on our freephone helpline at any time; we are open 24/7.

    How we can help

    You may also be able to claim through the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme, which was set up to compensate anyone injured whilst serving in the military. We can offer advice and assistance with claiming through the scheme in addition to looking at your civil claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has more than 13 years’ experience in the personal injury compensation industry, and we’re proud to have Esther Rantzen, TV personality and UK consumer champion as our patron.
