The very nature of serving the Armed Forces carries a great risk of personal injury. If you are injured in combat, you normally cannot claim compensation for your injuries. This is because the military have “Combat Immunity” meaning that you are accepting the risk of injury as part of your services.
However, if an injury could have been prevented, for example with better practices in place, more substantial training or safer equipment, the principle of Combat Immunity may not automatically apply and therefore you may still be entitled to make a claim.
