There is a great deal of support for the men and women who serve our country in the Armed Forces and most people understand the often challenging and difficult position they are in. Sometimes though, if you are serving in the Armed Forces you may have an accident and suffer from injuries and this can be very worrying and upsetting too.

We can help you to understand your legal position and to be able to make an informed decision about what your next steps will be.
We know how daunting it is to visit a solicitor and to discuss a claim for compensation against your current employer. You will be concerned about how this will affect your future career. You can be sure that we understand your concerns and we will handle your claim sensitively.
Types of accidents when working in the armed forces
There are a number of different ways in which you may have been injured whilst serving your country in the armed forces.
You may have had an accident when working in the kitchen, or in a warehouse. It could be that you had an accident with one of the vehicles on the ground or whilst driving in one. Alternatively, you may have been injured whilst on duty or on an exercise.
Compensation is payable when you have an accident as the result of someone else’s negligence and it is there to try to put you in the position you were in before your accident. There are many ways you could be injured whilst in the armed forces, but whatever the circumstances around your accident or injuries, you should talk to a solicitor to see if you are able to claim compensation.
