    Most dangerous careers: Paramedic

    Accidents at work occur in all sectors, yet some professions pose a higher risk of injury to employees than others. It is believed that although paramedics work to aid others who are ill and injured, they are three times as likely to suffer work-related accident or illness themselves, compared to other professionals, although very little information surrounding this issue is available.

    Paramedic accidents and injuries

    Common work-related accidents and injuries for paramedics include, but are not limited to:

    • manual handling injuries
    • road-traffic accidents
    • assault

    Due to the nature of the position, it is understandable that accidents on the road do occur and, in the heat of the moment, assaults are made against paramedics.

    That considered, preventable work-related injuries such as the sprains and strains caused by manual handling complaints are a cause for concern, which can be minimised with adequate inductions and thorough activity-specific training.

    Is your employer liable for your workplace accident or illness?

    Whichever industry you work in, from plumbing to law, every employer has a legal duty of care, to ensure your health and safety while at work.

    In the case that you sustain an injury due to the negligence of your employer, it is likely that they will have failed in their legal responsibility to protect your well-being and can therefore be held liable for your accident, injuries, illness, any loss of earnings and any everyday struggles you have faced because of your accident at work.

    You may want to seek the advice of a law firm that will be able to determine if your case is eligible for personal injury compensation.
