Military personnel are still very much able to make claims for compensation should they suffer an illness or injury whilst serving with the Army, Royal Air Force or Royal Navy.

Recently the bodies of five UK service personnel who were killed in a helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan were brought home to their families.

An investigation into how and why the Lynx helicopter came down 30 miles from the Pakistan border is now under way.
The crash which claimed the lives of 5 soldiers took place in the Takhta Pul district of Kandahar, and has been described by the MoD as an apparent ‘tragic accident’ which happened during a ‘routine flight’.

This crash again highlights the dangers soldiers face every day around the world.

At the end of the day a soldier is still an employee and the Ministry of defence (MoD) is their employer, and as such it has an obligation to keep their employees safe whilst they are at work in the UK or on a tour of duty.

Military personnel are still very much able to make claims for compensation should they suffer an illness or injury whilst serving with the Army, Royal Air Force or Royal Navy.
