Injury sustained as a Reservist or in the Territorial Army
We understand how serious sustaining an injury in the Territorial Army or as a reservist can be, not just for you but for your entire 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.
Our solicitors have helped many clients in these circumstances and we will work sensitively to help you get compensation for psychological as well as physical injuries.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
As well as physical injuries and illnesses, it is common for members of the Armed Forces (including TA and reservists) to suffer psychological harm such as depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD as it is more commonly referred.
PTSD can have a very serious impact on your mental and physical well-being, making everyday life hard to deal with. Pursuing a claim for compensation can help you and your family get the support you need to move forward with your life.
Whether you served in the Army, RAF, Navy, Reserve, TA or Special Forces, you may be able to make a claim for compensation if you are suffering from PTSD.

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.

Will claiming impact my career?
Understandably, many Reservists, TA and full time servicemen and woman 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 a compensation claim.
If you are worried about making a claim against the MoD, please contact our experienced solicitors today who can help to reassure you of your legal rights.
