You may think it is part of your job as a bouncer that you will occasionally sustain injuries or be the victim of violent and aggressive behaviour but, if you have suffered an accident or injury whilst carrying out your role, it might be worth asking the question “Can I claim for an injury as a bouncer?” There is an easy way to discover whether you have a legitimate claim for injuries you received or an accident you suffered, and that is to contact Accident Advice Helpline.
Being a bouncer normally means that you will be employed in areas where guests consume alcohol and where large groups of people populate a relatively small area. This often leads to conflict situations where behaviour, fuelled by alcohol, becomes uninhibited and violence can result. The bouncer’s job is primarily to protect the guests and eject from the premises those who are the source of the disruption. Your training will have provided you with some of the skills and techniques that are often useful in defusing potentially inflammatory situations although there will be times when physical intervention is required. Not all injuries sustained whilst working as a bouncer are in fact caused by customers, and the conditions and safeguards put in place by the employer must provide some protection for staff working in frontline, customer-facing roles.
If you think you have the substance for a claim for injury, Accident Advice Helpline is perfectly positioned to assess your case and, should you meet the criteria required for pursuing injury compensation, work towards securing the highest amount of compensation possible. Our in-house expert lawyers work on a no win, no fee* basis and understand the importance of ensuring that your injury is adequately compensated, taking into consideration the fact that you may have had to take time off work to recover, resulting in loss of earnings.
All you need to do to initiate a claim is contact Accident Advice Helpline and provide the friendly and skilled representative with information and details of the nature of your injuries and the way they occurred. If you have visible injuries, it is always best to take as many photographs of them as possible as this can provide valuable evidence in the claims process. For an indication of the amount of compensation you could expect, why not take a few moments to complete the online compensation calculator on our website?
Calling Accident Advice Helpline is simple and could be the most important call you make. Our 24-hour helpline is free to call and will put you directly in contact with one of our legal advisors who are skilled and experienced in dealing with compensation claims for injuries received whilst working. Sustaining an injury through no fault of your own, and then having to lose income or suffer poor health as a consequence, is not something the experts at Accident Advice Helpline consider fair. Just one call will ensure that they work hard to find you the best compensation package available.
