Military Injury Claims

Trust Accident Claims to handle you military personal injury effectively and professionally

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is no different from any other employer. They have the same duty of care as any other employer. They must provide training, supervision and a safe environment in which to work in. If you suffer an injury as a result of their failure to meet these requirements then Accident Claims can help you. Please note that generally claims cannot be made for injuries sustained in combat other than in situations where the MOD has failed to provide, for example, proper equipment.

We know that because of the dangerous materials used and situations military personnel are placed in, the risk of injury is higher and the seriousness of the injury can be considerably greater. Your career, your livelihood, your home and family’s support infrastructure can be disastrously affected in these cases.
