Working as a security guard
Working as a security guard can be rewarding, but also risky. Keeping premises safe and secure can be a full-time job, but you may often be the only barrier between safety and danger. Dangers can come in the form of on-site technical malfunctions, criminal activity, negligence on the part of your employer, or actions by members of the public. You may be highly experienced and you may have dealt with frequent incidents or risks in the past, but unfortunately, accidents can happen at any time, even to those trained to anticipate them.
Document what you know about your accident
A detailed written and photographic record of what happened will strengthen your potential claim for financial compensation. Write down as much as you remember about the time just before, during and after the accident. This should include the time of day, other people involved and the precise circumstances that caused your personal injury. Take photographs if needed, and keep everything clearly structured and stored, so that you can show this to your personal injury lawyer. It may constitute vital evidence required in the court proceedings. In other cases, your lawyer may advise you to settle before your case reaches court, but even so, a clear documentation of your accident helps prepare you for all eventualities.
