try via unit admin office. You should be entitled under afcs for any injuries on duty (AFCS is not just for battle trauma). If no joy with unit, try via AWS

Yes you are entitled to compensation under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme. Go to the www.veterans-uk.com (yes I know you are still serving) and look for AFCS in the search bar, the forms are all on there.

Don't claim until you know if there will be greater complications as this will affect the level of compensation.

There is NO gain without PAIN
If that hurt's you then fuk off to the MOD,that'll be worth a bob or two on thier past record's.

I would advise you to wait & see if your ankle heals properly before you think of pursuing the compensation route or at least seek the advice of the medical staff treating you. You should also ask some simple questions of yourself before you raise the compensation question as they may stop you embarrasing yourself:

Have you been medically downgraded as a result of your accident?

Did you require an operation to repair the damage or are you just in a cast & expecting some physio?

Was the fault actually attributable to anyone else or was it due to you?

If you don't have a claim or decide not to pursue it now, it should be logged on your medical records as an industrial accident so that if, later in life you suffer debilitating pain you will be able to claim. Don't forget to get a copy of the entry for your own records, strangely enough the army has a poor track record when it comes to producing them later in life!

Broke mine playing Army rugby 10 years ago, add a dislocation too. 12 Weeks in plaster and on sticks, 2 trips to Headley Court and a year or so of Physio. Now one of the fittest in my unit and a Triathlete, skier and climber to boot.

My Point?

Stop F**king whinging and thank your lucky stars you've got a leg. Get fixed, get fit with some of the best treatment available and leave the compensation for those that really need it you W**ker.
