If you or a close family member of yours was or is in the military and has had an accident for which they were not to blame, then you may have grounds to make a personal injury compensation claim. By the term injury, we also mean psychological damage, such as post-traumatic stress disorder.
Although a member of the armed forces signs up voluntarily for duty, there are circumstances in which a member of the military wishes to make a personal injury compensation claim against the Ministry of Defence (MOD) or a contractor or supplier working with the MOD.
Types of accidents members of the military could be involved in
- Medical negligence after an injury
- An Injury sustained while on a military exercise or while on duty
- A cold or heat (hyperthermia) injury
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Road traffic accidents either in the UK or on foreign soil
- An injury caused by faulty or defective equipment
- Inhalation of and exposure to hazardous or toxic substances
- Assault, bullying or harassment
This list is not exhaustive. Such accidents could lead to catastrophic, life-changing injuries or can be extremely damaging psychologically.
Making a claim for personal injury compensation
For any personal injury compensation claim you have to be able to prove that your injury was sustained because of the negligence of another person and that you were not to blame for it in any way. Sometimes members of the military feel, or are told that, the accident was their responsibility, but that is not always the case. You should ask advice from an accident solicitor in Boxford or elsewhere who has had a lot of experience in dealing with claims from members of the armed forces.
