Military personnel - Medical Negligence

If you are a serviceman or servicewoman in the armed forces and suffer as a result of incorrect or inadequate medical treatment, you may be able to pursue a claim through the courts in the usual way. This applies even where your accident or condition has arisen as a result of active operations.

As with any medical negligence case, there are strict rules which apply, and in order to succeed in a claim you have to show:

  • That the medical practitioner acted in such a way that no other medical practitioner would have acted if exercising reasonable care
  • That the damage was attributable to that lack of reasonable care
