Army Reservist Training Accidents
Accidents during Reserve Service training scenarios can cause some of the most serious military related injuries and lead to serious implication in civilian life, for you and for your family.
An injury which prevents you from returning to your normal civilian life can be devastating, both physically and emotionally and also financially. These effects can have a huge consequence on those who rely on you.
We specialise in military related personal injury claims and offer all our clients a free and no obligation initial phone consultation, during which we will take details from you about your accident and injuries and advise you on the prospects of bringing a successful claim.
What you can claim for
As a reservist, you are able to claim compensation for any illness or injury that has happened as a result of your service in the Reserve Forces, this includes physical injuries and mental conditions such as PTSD.
Military related claims for personal injury are complex and your potential claim should be handled by solicitors that specialise in this area of law. We have considerable expertise and experience in representing members of the Armed Forces in civil claims for personal injury.
Types of Army Reservist Training Accidents
We have helped many Army Reservists injured in training accidents claim compensation. Some some of the most common causes have been as a result of the following:
- Parachuting accidents
- Abseiling and mountaineering accidents
- Accidents involving faulty equipment
- Non freezing cold injuries as a result lack of or poor equipment
- Faulty weapons
- Accidents in military vehicles
If you are an Army Reservist, injured in training then please contact us today.
How much compensation can I expect to claim?
The amount of compensation that you can expect to receive depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your injuries, your recovery, whether you have lost earnings as a result of the accident and the cost of any long term medical treatment which may be required.
For a more detailed view on your individual claim, contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today for a free consultation.
How long will the Reservist Accident claim take to complete?
Every military related claim for personal injury is different but the majority of claims take more than 12 months and in some cases much longer. Our experts will guide you through the process of claiming, every step of the way.
You may also be able to claim compensation for your injuries via the AFCS.
Will claiming impact my career?
It is common to worry about making a claim against your employer and understandably many Reservists are hesitant about making a claim against the Ministry of Defence (MoD). However, the MoD recognises that service personnel are regularly put in dangerous situations and must respect an individual’s right to make a claim for any injury or illness that they may have sustained during service.
As with any employer in the private sector, the MoD is not allowed to discriminate against personnel who make any claim for compensation.
