An accident can be a very distressing, painful and expensive crisis to those involved especially when it is a case of life or death. In the insurance industry, one of the biggest causes of death and injury claims could be attributed to military road traffic accident claims. Though it may sound not so common, it is very probable that someone in the armed forces may get involved in a rash driving incident, be impaired while driving and get injured or killed in a road traffic accident irrespective of who is at fault. Many specialised solicitors and lawyers who can help claim compensation related to lost wages and other expenses as a result of time off work due to the accident and injuries deal with the claims of such accidents.
As with any accidents, the common causes of military road traffic accidents sound familiar. Using unsafe military vehicles, ignoring road safety, unclear road markings and uneven road surfaces to just name a few could be some of the causes. Negligence from officials of the Ministry of Defence could play a major role in such accidents. It is a huge responsibility on the part of the Defence Ministry officials to provide safe vehicles, adhere to clear road markings, ensure road safety procedures and maintain the road terrain to prevent any accidents that could claim a life or cause serious life threatening injuries.
Just like you would seek the assistance of a solicitor for dealing with a regular accident claim, you would definitely require expert advice when it comes to military road traffic accident claims. It is very important to seek the advice of someone who is legally aware of the implications of the different variables related to the accident. Military accidents could occur when the official is on duty or off duty and depending on which situation, the injury claims are dealt with specific to the circumstance.
Some of the conditions of the accident scenario may require probing if there is any negligence on the part of the Ministry of Defence that caused the accident, who is at fault for the accident, what are the survival rates of the injured and long term fitness and health implications that may affect the injured personnel’s military career.
Any accident could have serious implications to those involved in the accident that could be very traumatic. The medical expenses, cost of rehabilitation, loss of wages, and cost of living in the present context as well as in the long term would have to be considered by the solicitors working on military road traffic accident claims. Depending on the nature of the military road accident, timing of the accident i.e. whether or not during duty or off duty, the extent of the injury, the medical costs, assessing the need for rehabilitation, the pain and suffering involved, determining who is at fault and many other factors are considered when arriving at a conclusion when dealing with such accidents.
The claims compensation if and when awarded should truly reflect that it is intended to get the military personnel back on track to his military career with sound fitness levels and financial backing for the time taken off work while recovering. That is why it is important to have the competent legal hands helping you get the best outcome in a military road traffic accident claim procedure.
