Military Training Accident Claims

If you have suffered injuries during military training exercise, it may be possible for you to make a military training accident claim.

Compensation is awarded so that you are able to get rid of your financial worries and cover the cost of medical expenses. At, we have specialist solicitors who have vast experience in handling all types of military accident claims, including military training accident claims. We can help you make a military training accident claim if you suffered injuries as a result of defective equipment or due to the negligence of your supervisor or commanding officer.

Claiming For Compensation

In order to make a successful claim for compensation, it must be established that you sustained injuries as a result of breach of health and safety regulations or negligence on the part of the Ministry of Defence. This could mean that the accident occurred due to the negligence of the training supervisor, negligence of another military personnel participating in the training exercise or it could also mean being provided with faulty equipment.

If it can be established that the Ministry of Defence was responsible for your injuries, then it will be possible for you achieve a positive outcome.

Making A Compensation Claim Against The MOD

A number of military personnel are worried about the consequences of making a claim against the MOD. Most of them believe that they will end up losing their job if they claim against the MOD.

If you believe you have a claim, but are worried about making a claim, consider seeking legal advice. Our solicitors can provide expert legal advice and answer any questions that you may have. We will also help you understand that claiming for compensation following an injury that was caused by the negligence of another person is your legal right. For this reason, your employer, even if it the MOD, will not be able to dismiss you from you post.

You must also understand that there are time limits for bringing a military accident claim. This is usually three years from the date of the actual accident. But, if you choose to make a claim through the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme, then a time limit of five years applies. In any case, it is recommended to seek legal advice as soon as possible following the injury.
