It shouldn’t be forgotten however that working as a soldier can be incredibly dangerous and in some situations even fatal. Working on the front line in direct combat is a very dangerous activity and one that requires the highest level of training and experience to perform successfully.

When you sign up to the army or any other type of combat troop you are generally given a good level of training to ensure that you are ready for this type of combat. If you feel that you haven’t been trained correctly, or that you have been led into battle without a good level of preparation and equipment, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. 

Where might a soldier be able to claim compensation?

As a soldier there are many situations where you could be eligible to make a compensation claim and these include:

  • Faulty equipment – if you are provided with faulty equipment or incorrect equipment then you could be injured as a result
  • Poor training – if you haven’t received adequate amounts of training or the training that you have received has been poor quality
  • Training accidents – if you are injured in a training accident due to the negligence of your supervisor or another trainee
  • Friendly fire – if you are injured as a result of friendly fire due to the negligence of another member of your troop
  • Poor instruction – if you are injured as the result of poor or incorrect instruction on behalf of your superior or supervisor.
