Armed forces injuries
Members of the armed forces work in some of the most difficult, challenging and dangerous parts of the world.
Like all other employees, they are still owed a duty of care to ensure that, whilst carrying out their duties, they are kept safe and well as far as reasonably practicable.
Sustaining injury, whilst on or off duty, can have a devastating effect on service personnel and their families. Serious injury may affect their ability to return to work, income, promotion prospects, housing and pension entitlement.
Clearly the best outcome, following injury, would be a return to full fitness and a resumption of duties. We work closely with expert rehabilitation services, whether the requirement is physical or psychological rehabilitation, to help the recovery process as much as possible. However, in certain circumstance the injury incurred, necessitates you leaving the Services.
