COMPENSATION FOR WAR INJURIES

Reading time: 4 min.

In order to receive the compensation provided for by the current legislation for injuries during the war, you must first pass the Military Medical Commission. The result will confirm the fact of injury and the corresponding deterioration of health, as well as the subsequent fitness or unfitness to continue military service. In many cases, it is necessary to enlist the support of professional lawyers already at the stage of Military Medical Commission. As practice shows, a soldier often has to fight for the resolution of the military medical commission to reflect his real condition. Here we know how to act within the limits of current legislation. The team of the Prikhodko&Partners law office is regularly contacted with such requests. So we have the necessary knowledge to help protect your interests efficiently and effectively.

Injury, treatment, MMC

After receiving an injury, a serviceman receives a referral for treatment, and then to the Medical Examiner's Office, which will give a conclusion on his state of health. However, the role of not only doctors, but also authorized representatives of the military unit is important, as they must issue a certificate, which will record the circumstances under which the person was injured.

Here, it is very important to check that the cause-and-effect relationship between the injury and the performance of combat tasks is indicated in the certificate. As practice shows, there are often problems with this, and then the serviceman has to fight with the bureaucracy for a long time and collect evidence that the injury was actually received during combat operations. That is why it is good to have the phone of a good military lawyer at hand, who, if necessary, will assume a representative function in the interaction and control the correctness of the actions and conclusions of officials at a time when the serviceman himself is in a vulnerable state and is focused on his health .

If you treat these issues in this way from the beginning, you can minimize the risks in the event that an unfortunate situation occurs when a soldier is injured. It is better if everything goes well, but the contacts of a military lawyer, who are always ready, will add more confidence and peace of mind.

Appeal of the decision of the Military Medical Commission

If you disagree with the content of the resolution of the Military Medical Commission, you can appeal it. For example, it often happens that after being wounded, a soldier becomes completely unfit for continued service, and doctors write in documents that he is fit with restrictions. Therefore, a person who objectively cannot serve becomes a hostage of the situation. And, instead of focusing on her own health, she is forced to look for opportunities to get out of the service.

Resolutions of the Military Medical Commission are appealed to the higher Military Medical Commission, the central Military Medical Commission or in court.

 

What you should know about compensation?

All of the above is directly related to the question of compensation and its amount, since the latter depends on the damage to the serviceman's health caused by the injury. The Law of Ukraine "On Social and Legal Protection of Servicemen and Their Families" as well as Cabinet Resolution № 975 of 12/25/2013 regulate the amount of payments. This amount directly depends on whether the disability was received as a result of the injury. If so, the I group provides for the payment of 400 times the amount of the subsistence minimum, the II group - 300 times the amount, and the III group - 250 times the amount. The disability group is determined based on the results of the MSEK examination.

If the injury did not cause disability, the military can also receive compensation. True, its size will be somewhat smaller - 50 or 70 subsistence minimums.

Our team will help you defend your rights and not suffer from the bureaucratic factor that often accompanies the field of military law.
