Military Injury Claims
Working for the Military is an obvious dangerous profession which requires courage and commitment from an individual serving. It is important to note however, that injuries during combat itself are not liable in any way to making a personal injury claim. This is known as combat immunity and means that the Ministry of Defence cannot be held liable in such extreme conditions as close quarter combat. The Ministry has its own compensation scheme in place for those injured in combat. Military injury claims only cover injuries that were caused by negligence and mistakes on behalf of the military and not caused by enemy fire.
If the military has been negligent in caring for your health and safety, a claim may be possible for compensation.
- Training exercise accidents
- Road traffic accident involving military personnel
- Injury caused by inappropriate or defective equipment
- Military medical negligence claims
- Insufficient training
Below is a list of some example military negligence claims:
