One of Chicksands’ claims to fame is that it is an Royal Air Force (RAF) base. In the war it was a Y station, where coded signals sent by the Germans were intercepted and passed on to Bletchley Park. If you are in the military (whether the army, navy or RAF), because of the nature of your job you may have an accident while you are performing your duties or training. You may be able to file an injury claim in Chicksands if so.
Injury claim in Chicksands
Sometimes a military accident is fatal, but close relatives (parent, spouse or child) can claim personal injury compensation for the loss of a loved one if they died in an accident that was not their fault. Often, an accident involving military personnel has life-changing effects, whether physical or psychological. You may suffer post-traumatic stress disorder after a stint abroad, perhaps in Afghanistan, and you can make an injury claim in Chicksands or elsewhere if this is the case.
You may now be confined to a wheelchair after a road accident, or an accident that occurred while you were on active duty. Whatever the case, as long as you were not responsible for your accident, then you may have grounds to file an injury claim in Chicksands.
You will need an experienced military accident solicitor to deal with your claim, as you need one who understands the procedure for filing, and perhaps fighting, a claim against the Ministry of Defence (MoD).
Your claim may not be against the MoD if you were injured because of using faulty equipment which was supplied to the MoD by a private company. In this case, you will still need an accident solicitor who specialises in military compensation claims if your injury claim in Chicksands (or elsewhere) is to be successful.
