Military injury claims
Military work poses very obvious but unique risks to those working within the armed forces. Whether they are on or off duty, military personal are exposed to an increased possibility of injury or death on a regular basis.
The Ministry of Defence has a duty of care to its employees, with military workers still protected by the health and safety regulations despite the unique circumstances under which they are required to work.
Suffering from a military injury can be a distressing and difficult experience. As well as the physical pain of your injuries, you may also be suffering from psychological injury. You may also have concerns about your future health, career and the impact it will have on their family. At Irwin Mitchell, we can help you to understand the options available to you if either you or a member of your family has suffered any form of injury whilst serving in the armed forces.
