Are you reading this because you have just been involved in an Army accident that was not your fault? Maybe a member of your family is in the Army and has just telephoned to tell you that they have been hurt in an accident. What follows is the why, how, where and when of making an Army accident compensation claim.
Why make an Army accident compensation claim?
You would do this if you have been involved in an Army accident that was not your fault. On the face of it, many accidents may look as if they were your fault – after all you, were the one who got injured. Think again.
If things had been handled differently, would you have remained unhurt? If you were injured in a training exercise on an assault course, for example, were you actually shown how to get around the assault course safely? Were the techniques required demonstrated to you properly and were you being supervised? If you have been injured using a piece of equipment, was that equipment faulty or was it the wrong equipment for the job? Were you shown how to use it properly? These are the sort of questions you should be asking yourself.
