Army injury compensation is a niche area of personal injury claims, applying specifically to injuries incurred by army personnel whether in the Royal Navy, Armed Forces or the RAF.
If you have been injured whilst working for the Armed Forces in any capacity, your injury may be eligible for compensation, if someone else is to blame. In the case of Army injury compensation, this will likely involve negligence on the part of the Ministry of Defence. If this is the case, your injury will also need to have happened in the past three years and have resulted in the need for medical attention in order to be eligible for compensation.
Army injury compensation claims may include:
- Compensation claims against the Ministry of Defence as an employer
- Personal injuries in the UK and abroad
- Medical negligence
- Road traffic accidents
- Lack of sufficient safety equipment
- Unsafe or poorly maintained tools or machinery
- Lack of training to carry out jobs safely
- Compartment syndrome
- Bullying or harassment
- Exposure to toxic substances
- Head injuries
If you have suffered any of the above injuries, it is worth speaking with a professional claims expert to find out more about your entitlement. You can also confirm your eligibility by using a handy online tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second test. On completing the few short questions, you will also get an idea of your possible compensation amount, whether into the hundreds or thousands of pounds.
