What qualifies for an army injury compensation claim?
If your injury occurred within the last three years and was caused through somebody else’s negligence, in this case the army as the overall body responsible, then you may be entitled to compensation. Examples include the following:
- Injuries resulting from inadequate training to use weaponry, equipment or vehicles;
- Combat stress;
- Accidents during training or deployment;
- Deafness, illness or diseases;
- Heat or cold injuries;
- Accidents on a military base;
- Road traffic accidents where army personnel or vehicles were involved; and
- Death in service.
Working for the army is far more than a profession or job that pays the bills. Typically, army personnel take their families with them wherever they go, so any accident or injury suffered on duty has an even more devastating effect. The support network of friends and family that an office or factory worker has at hand is not a given with army personnel.
Therefore, we have specialist solicitors who appreciate and understand that your army injury compensation claim is not just there to make good on your actual injury; it is to compensate you for your pain, suffering, loss of earnings and psychological trauma arising as a result of the injury. If your injury was severe and you are forced to leave the army, it may be far more difficult to replace your income with a job that is not in the military sector. Any compensation you win with the help of a solicitor must reflect this.
