Claiming Compensation for Military Accidents

Working for the Military can be one of the most respected jobs in the country, but it can also be one of the most dangerous. Working in a war zone means you are constantly surrounded by dangerous equipment and landmines. If you receive an injury during your time in service then you may be eligible to claim injury compensation.

If you have been injured while on service as a result of negligence on behalf of your employer then you may be able to make a claim for compensation to cover the costs of your medical treatment as well as any loss of income that ensues due to your inability to continue work.

Common causes of Military Accidents:

Military accidents can be varied but most commonly include:

  • Bullet wounds from enemy fire which can cause either major or minor injuries
  • Loss of limbs or impalement from landmines and roadside bombs requiring amputation or total removal of the limb
  • Burns and cuts from air-to-ground missiles and cluster bombs
  • Temporary blindness/deafness caused by shrapnel from landmines and bombs.

Psychological Disorder Claims:

Military personnel can suffer from not just physical injury but also mental injury from their time in war zones. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is one of the most commonly diagnosed injuries within war veterans and also one of the most devastating.

PTSD can exhibit a range of symptoms and often follows an injury that occurred in a war zone. These symptoms can include a range of flashbacks to traumatic experiences, stress and an inability to re-assimilate into society. If you are suffering from PTSD you may also be eligible to make an injury claim.

How to make a claim:

If you have recently returned from a war zone and have suffered any of the injuries mentioned above as a result of the negligence of your employer, then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation to cover the costs of your medical treatment and your rehabilitation process.
