Military Accidents

Being part of the military is an undeniably dangerous profession. You are placed in real-life combat situations, which can result in severe injury. This is why you should be confident that the Ministry of Defence will protect you. However, this is not always the case and military accidents are a particularly unpleasant part of serving.

Whether your accident happened on deployment, during training or in a civilian environment, there are many different ways you can suffer an injury. These injuries can be devastating, which is why our team want to help you. Some types of injury we can advise on include:

  • Faulty weapon or equipment
  • Training accident
  • Criminal injuries
  • Road traffic accident
  • Trench foot/cold injuries
  • Military disease/illness claims
  • Brain injury
  • If you suffered an injury from a military accident in the last three years that was the fault of another person or organisation, then you could be able to make a compensation claim.

    You may need to provide physical evidence, as well as witness statements, in order to support your case when bringing a claim for your injury. It is therefore important that you begin the process as soon as possible – this helps avoid evidence being lost and memories fading.

    If you’re not sure whether you have enough grounds to pursue a military accident claim, speaking to one of our experts can help clarify whether you have a strong case and what your options are. Furthermore, if you’re unsure about proceeding with a claim because of concerns over your employment, our team of experts can help reassure you. You cannot have your employment terminated as a result of pursuing a claim for any injuries you may have sustained.

    We offer free, no-obligation advice to anybody who’s suffered an accident at work and thinks that they are entitled to compensation. If your accident at work has occurred within the last 3 years and was the result of negligence on behalf of your employer, call us today for a consultation.

    Our team of personal injury claims specialists are very experienced at handling claims involving accidents at work and we will treat you in a friendly and professional matter. We understand that you may not know what your options are and that your injuries may be difficult for you to talk about. We will carefully and patiently work through the evidence available and help you decide if pursuing a claim for the accident at work is in your best interests.

    Yes you can still claim as long as the accident that caused your injury was not your fault and the time-scales are as follows;

    The limitation period is 3 years from the date of the accident. So if you were injured in a non fault accident over 3 years ago you are likely to be out of time. However if you were under 18 years old at the time of the non fault accident then you may still be within the limits as the 3 years runs from the date of your 18th birthday.

    The limit for Criminal Compensation Claims is 2 years.

    Any claims made under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) have to be made within 7 years of the accident date.

    Try our Compensation Calculator to see what your claim may be worth after a successful personal injury claim.

    When you’re looking to make a claim following an accident at work, it is typically best to start the process as soon as possible. This way, you’ll be able to remember all the details of the incident, which could help to strengthen your case.

    We know these types of incidents can affect your life years after happening, so we want to make it possible for you to obtain justice when you realise how seriously it has affected you. This is why it could still be possible to make a claim up to three years after your accident at work occurred.

    When you’re looking for a solicitor to help you, we know you have a lot of choice. However, you’ll certainly be searching for a firm with the experience to take your claim forward, which we have in abundance. Our team of experts have secured hugely significant compensation sums for victims of accidents at work, so we’re confident in our ability to help you too.

    We pride ourselves on the way we treat you as real person, rather than just another case. With us, you’ll receive a personalised and tailored service, unique to you as an individual. You’ll be assigned a case handler, who will help you to understand the entire process. We want you to feel as relaxed as possible throughout the process, which is why we ensure that one person manages the case from the very beginning.

    Here at Hayward Baker, we understand the importance of communication, so you can be confident in the knowledge you won’t have to chase us for information. We’ll be in contact at every critical stage, making sure you’re fully updated about every element of your case as we know how important it is to you.
