Armed forces training accident claims

Members of the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force (RAF) could be entitled to compensation if they are injured during their training in an accident which was not their fault. For free initial advice and to discuss your potential compensation claim call us on 0203 816 0065.

Military professionals are entitled to compensation from their employer if they suffer injury or trauma through the negligence or malpractice of another in the same way that any professional could. But despite what many might think most military injury claims concern training accidents and accidents which take place during manoeuvres, rather than on the battlefield.

The armed forces rely upon a number of stringent procedures to minimise accident and injury, but when these procedures are ignored or incorrectly followed, accidents can happen and the victim could have grounds for a military injury claim.
