There is currently an Armed Forces Compensation Scheme in place in the UK under which injured soldiers are compensated.
The Armed Forces Compensation Scheme ensures that employees of the MoD are compensated for any injuries they sustain due to the MoD’s negligence.
The scheme provides two types of compensation payments.
For those suffering from injury or illness the scheme will payout lump sum payments in which all of the compensation amount is paid at once.
Guaranteed Income Payments (GIPs) on the other hand are paid in monthly instalments, acting as a regular income to provide stability for those who have suffered from life changing personal injuries.
As armed forces compensation specialists we have seen cases in which the compensation scheme hasn’t provided injured personnel with enough compensation for their losses. If this applies to your case claimpersonalinjury.com can help.
