Whether you are a civilian or a member of the Armed Forces (Army, Navy or Royal Air Force) you will be able to make a compensation claim against the Ministry of Defence if you have suffered injury as a result of an accident, whether at home or abroad, which was caused by the negligence and/or a breach of the Armed Forces’ statutory duties.
The types of claims with which our specialist Personal Injury lawyers have dealt include road-traffic accidents, failure to supply adequate protective equipment, bullying and criminal assault.
As well as making a claim via the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS), it is also possible to bring a civil claim. The advantage of taking this step is that you are likely to be awarded more through the civil Courts as there is no cap on compensation, unlike the AFCS.
It does not matter whether or not you are still employed by the Ministry of Defence.
A discussion with one of our specialist Personal Injury lawyers can outline for you the options available so that you are able to make the best choice and to consider if you have a valid military compensation claim.
