Military Training Accident Claims | Military Injury Compensation | Irwin Mitchell

Our expert military injury lawyers will provide you with free initial advice on your compensation claim and with our No Win No Fee agreements there's no financial risk to you if you're unsuccessful*.

When joining the Armed Forces, you are made aware that any training exercises you face can be very tough and even dangerous.

Although training in the Armed Forces has to be rigorous by its very nature, the Ministry of Defence is similar to any employer in having a duty of care to prevent accidents wherever possible.

Whilst measures are often taken to prevent accidents, this is unfortunately not always the case and accidents in the military can lead to serious injuries, the loss of your military career and even fatalities.

Our Experience In Military Training Accident Claims

If you have been involved in an accident whilst training in the military, we could help you gain compensation, support and care for the injuries you have suffered.

Our team of expert military injury solicitors have over 25 years of experience in dealing with claims after training accidents, gaining compensation and support for many service personnel and their families.

We have recently represented people who have suffered training accidents involving:

  • Assault courses
  • Adventure training
  • Firing ranges
  • Mountaineering exercises
  • Diving accidents
  • Parachuting
  • Skiing

We can represent you in your training accident claim relating to these and other circumstances whether you serve in the Army, the Navy or the RAF.

In many cases, accidents have occurred due to insufficient planning from senior officials, or faulty equipment being issued. In cases where you have been required to operate in a realistic or tricky environment, we will examine the MoDs risk assessment for such conditions and analyse if these should have been altered to better protect you.

Why Choose Irwin Mitchell?

We have former Armed Forces personnel on our team of solicitors, who have a great deal of experience in making successful claims against the MoD. Our team fight to gain the support and compensation that you deserve after suffering from an accident that could have been prevented.

Our advice can extend beyond your immediate legal case, to include guidance on the types of welfare support that might be available to you and your family after an accident.
