Military compensation claims
If you sustained an injury while serving in the British military, you may be entitled to make a claim against the Ministry of Defence (MoD), or a manufacturer if you were issued with faulty equipment. UK government figures show that since 2005, nearly £341 million has been paid in compensation to more than 16,000 troops. If you have been injured on active service in countries such as Afghanistan or Iraq, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation for those injuries, be they psychological or physical.
The Armed Forces Compensation Scheme was introduced in 2005. Before that troops received payouts from the War Pensions Scheme, but these could only be claimed by veterans. Today there are injury solicitors who specialise in helping military personnel to claim personal injury compensation, and if you think you have a claim to make you should contact one, or call us at Accident Advice Helpline to be put in touch with one.
