    Police officer accidents: Dealing with diseases


    Police officers regularly have to expose themselves to risks in order to fulfil the requirements of their jobs, whether it’s handling violent criminals, responding to riots or dealing with speeding or drunk drivers.

    Occupational accidents can sometimes be someone else’s fault

    Understandably, the day-to-day life of a police offer can be particularly stressful, especially when there is a shortage of staff and a regular need to work overtime. If you have suffered an occupational disease or work injury that wasn’t your fault, you could make a claim for financial compensation.

    Have you been the victim of an injury that was someone else’s fault?

    Accident Advice Helpline helps victims of work-related accidents like repetitive strain injuries and other incidents get the justice they deserve. This does not just include people working in the police force, it includes all victims of accidents at work or any other environments.

    Find out if you could be compensated

    For example, if you reported an injury to a supervisor or manager and confirmed that you should be exempt from carrying out manual work or heavy lifting, you could make a claim for work accident compensation if you subsequently experienced a workplace injury after being ordered to perform these aforementioned activities.

    We process claims for many types of accidents

    According to the UK Health and Safety Executive department, people who work in construction, catering, printing and healthcare are at an increased risk of experiencing skin diseases. Lung diseases, meanwhile, have historically been more prevalent in miners or people working with asbestos. If you have suffered work accidents involving faulty equipment and have experienced a long term injury, you could make a repetitive strain injury claim and be awarded repetitive strain injury compensation.
