Military negligence compensation claims – types of claims

Military staff can be hurt in exactly the same way as other employees and there are rules to protect their health and safety. Therefore, if they are hurt in an accident that was caused by someone else, they may be able to claim compensation. Here are some examples of possible military accidents :

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Accidents involving faulty machinery
  • Accidents involving faulty equipment
  • Accidents involving failure of personal protective equipment
  • Claims for psychological symptoms

How to claim

Making military negligence compensation claims can be a little more complex than making other personal injury claims. Factors such as the country that the accident occurred in and whether the injured person was in combat, have to be taken into account. For this reason, it is probably best to let a military accident claims specialist handle your claim. They will also understand the time limits that are involved. You can contact a military negligence compensation claims expert by calling Accident Advice Helpline. Their team of highly-trained professional advisers will give you all the information and advice that you need and answer your queries.

Handling the claim

Most claims are actually handled over the telephone and it is not very likely that you will have to appear in court. You will need to submit some information regarding your injuries so it is a good idea to keep a note of the following:

  • Emergency treatment at the scene
  • Initial treatment in hospital
  • Scans, X-rays and other investigations
  • Surgical operations and procedures
  • Therapies such as physiotherapy
  • On-going physical symptoms
  • Psychological symptoms

You will also need to supply details about the accident and how it happened. It is always a good idea to start a claim as soon as possible so that the details are fresh in everyone’s mind, with all the paperwork readily to hand.

Receiving compensation

All accidents are different and so all compensation pay-outs are different. In general, the more serious injuries receive the highest pay-outs but this is very variable. Some cases also take much longer than others to resolve but your personal injury lawyer will keep in contact with you throughout the case and let you know how things are going. At the end of it, you will hopefully receive the compensation pay out you deserve.
