UK Soldier Training Accidents
Over the past 20 years our solicitors have advised thousands of military clients regarding No Win No Fee claims. During this time, we have advised service men and women on a wide range of different military training accident types.
Some of the most common training accidents we have advised on include:
- Hearing loss and deafness caused by prolonged exposure to noise without sufficient PPE
- Knee, hip, neck and ankle injuries during physical fitness training accidents, including obstacle and SAQ training accidents
- Serious injuries resulting from parachute jump training accidents
- Abseiling and mountaineering accidents, leading to serious neck, back and hand injuries
How much compensation can you claim?
This is one of the most common questions we are asked by soldiers contacting us regarding new claims.
Every claim is different and the amount of compensation you may expect to receive depends on a number of different factors including the type of accident you have been involved in, the severity of your injuries, whether you have been discharged from service and if you have suffered a financial loss as a result of your injury.
Our team of specialist solicitors have a proven track record of successfully winning significant amounts of compensation on behalf of our military clients.
- Our solicitors represented a member of the Army in his claim for over £615,000 for his military training related hearing loss claim
- We represented another member of the Army in his claim for £286,000 in his non-freezing cold injury claim, sustained during training exercises in Scotland.
- We represented a member of the Navy claim over £300,000 for his non-freezing cold injury, sustained during underwater training exercises
- We represented a member of the RAF claim over £100,000 for his serious arm injury, sustained during training
If you have been seriously injured during military training, in an accident that was not your fault then please contact Nigel Askew Solicitors today on 01507 609027.
How long do training accidents take from start to finish?
We pride ourselves on offering our clients the highest standard of legal advice and will keep you updated every step of way throughout the claims process.
All military training accident claims are different and due to the complex nature of personal injury claims, the majority of claims take longer than 12 months to settle.
Rest assured, our team have 20 years of experience in running these claims and will work as hard as we can to expedite the claims process.
Are there time limits for making a claim?
Yes, the window of opportunity to start a new claim is very strict.
The law in England & Wales states that someone has 3 years from the date of an accident, a medical diagnosis or from the date they first realised their injury was caused by their work, to start a new civil claim.
The “limitation” period is one of the most common reasons for new UK soldier training accident claims failing, so we recommend you contact us as soon as possible for our specialist advice regarding your potential claim.
