All employers have a responsibility to protect their employees and this includes the Ministry of Defence.
Service personnel have the same rights as other workers to pursue a claim if they are injured at work through no fault of their own. There is an exception to this if you are injured whilst engaging or preparing to engage the enemy, but the law surrounding this exception is complicated. If you are in any doubt, contact our expert solicitors at Bakers Solicitors who will be able to advise you.
