If you are unsure whether you are able to claim or are concerned about claiming against the Ministry of Defence, we would encourage you to speak with one of specialist solicitors for military injury claims who may be able to put your mind at rest. The Ministry of Defence, like any other employer, has a responsibility to comply with strict Health and Safety rules and regulations. There will be no prejudice held against you for claiming for your injuries as this is within your legal right if their negligence can be proven to have caused your injury or the life of a loved one.
Many Armed Forces Personnel who suffer an injury in a military accident are unaware of their right to be afforded safety when they are not in direct combat. Our Personal Injury Specialists are able to advice of your rights and whether you are entitled to bring a claim for military accident compensation.
Military Personnel have been allowed to claim for their injuries since the 1987 Crown Proceedings (Armed Force) Act. This Act applies if the Ministry of Defence fail in their duty of care towards their employee although certain injuries caused during combat or an operation cannot be claimed for. The reason behind this is because such injuries are covered by the defence of ‘combat immunity’. Combat immunity means that the Ministry of Defence no longer have a duty of care to provide a safe environment for Armed Forces Personnel where they are in combat with an enemy.
For this reason, the Ministry of Defence cannot be sued in a situation where an Armed Forces Personnel makes a mistake. However, it is important to note that as with most defences, there are also exceptions to the defence of Combat Immunity. The circumstances of combat are not always clear and such matters can be very complex.
