Ministry of Defence Personal Injury Claims


For Ministry of Defence personal injury claims, Accident Advice Helpline can help. Even though servicemen and women are doing a dangerous job, the Ministry of Defence has exactly the same duty for its employees as any other employer in the UK.

This means that if you’re injured whilst serving in the Armed Forces (or injured by someone working in the Armed Forces) and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.

Ministry of Defence personal injury claims: what to do

Your first port of call should be the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme. You may also be able to gain further damages by taking independent action via Accident Advice Helpline. We handle personal injury claims for military personnel and can increase the compensation you’re awarded compared to if you only go through the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme.

Typical military personal injury claims

Here are a few common causes of military personal injury claims:

  • Injuries sustained in training
  • Lack of training/supervision
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals/substances
  • Lack of safety equipment
  • Safety equipment failure
  • Tinnitus or loss of hearing due to a loud noise
  • Repetitive strain injuries (RSI)
  • Slips, trips or falls
  • Diseases and illnesses
  • Fatalities

Whether your injury is physical or psychological, you are entitled to claim for damages. You should not have to pay for the mistakes of others – no matter what your job may be.

And a military career is more than just a job. It’s a way of life that crosses borders. An injury can bring this to a sudden halt and you may find yourself missing promotions or being held back in some way leading to an unnecessary financial burden. It’s with this in mind that we suggest you get in touch with us at Accident Advice Helpline.
