Life in the military is often very physical, but the injuries you sustain aren’t always part-and-parcel of the job.
Sometimes, negligence on the part of the Ministry of Defence (MOD), your commanding officers or third parties could be the cause of your injury, and may form the basis of a compensation claim. If the organisation responsible for safeguarding your working conditions and your welfare failed to do so, you may be able to hold them to account with a military injury claim.
