Accidents and injuries caused by training accidents can have devastating long term effects and many can lead to medical discharge. If you have been medically discharged due to a non-fault accident or injury then please call us today, we are available now.
Like all employers, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has a duty to protect its employees, for example by providing them with safe and appropriate equipment and by providing appropriate training in how to correctly use equipment. If you are provided with equipment, it needs to be maintained to high standards and should be in sound working order.
Training accidents are often preventable
Unlike many civilian jobs, members of the Armed Forces are required to keep in peak condition, both physically and mentally, so regular training is vital, however training exercises often go wrong. Sometimes accidents do happen but in many cases, accidents are caused by bad and negligent decisions by commanding officers or faulty equipment.
The MoD must adhere to strict Health and Safety regulations just as any other employer in the private sector are required to. The solicitors at Nigel Askew have advised many clients on claims for compensation as a result of negligence in a training environment and are available to speak with you today. Contact us by calling 01507 609027 for a free assessment of your potential claim.
