By its very nature, working in the armed forces is dangerous, but a career in the military does not mean that you should suffer unnecessarily when an accident occurs at work.
Here at Seth Lovis & Co, our team of personal injury solicitors can act for members of the armed forces in military compensation claims when an incident which has caused harm to personnel could have, and should have, been avoided.
Like any employer, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has a legal duty to ensure that its employees are offered the safest working environment possible and must protect staff from foreseeable risks.
As serving personnel you may think that injuries are part and parcel of your job, but you can claim personal injury compensation, in the same way that civilians can, for a range of accidents and incidents arising from your employment.
These can include, but are not limited to:
- Workplace injuries, such as slips and trips;
- Personal injury caused as a result of lack of training;
- Injuries incurred during PT;
- Illness and disease contracted while on military work, especially if it was not treated in a timely or correct manner;
- Personal injury caused by faulty weapons, kit or equipment;
- Personal injury caused by lack of or inappropriate kit or equipment;
- Road traffic accidents on military or civilian property; and
- Personal injury which occurs on military manoeuvres.
We specialise in helping victims of catastrophic injury, including spinal injury and traumatic brain injury and can help you if you have suffered such an injury as a result of employment in the military.
Making a difference in military compensation claims
If you are uncertain as to whether you have a valid claim against the MoD, why not pick up the phone and call our team today for a friendly chat about your circumstances. We realise that commencing a claim against your employer may seem a daunting prospect, but if your life, and that of your family, has been altered irrevocably because of their negligence then we are here to help you claim the financial redress you are entitled to.
In most cases the MoD will employ experienced solicitors to defend the claim, so it pays to have the best legal team at your disposal when bringing such an action. Here at Seth Lovis & Co we pride ourselves on our proven track record in high-value personal injury claims and you can rest assured that our ability to enlist the help of medical experts, military experts, and all necessary specialist evidence for your support, will be second to none.
