What could I claim in compensation for an injury as a security guard?
If your security guard accident happened in the last three years, required medical attention and was caused by someone else, we may be able to help you. Your potential claim depends on what happened in the accident and its aftermath. If your injuries caused you significant mental or physical stress, or if they required prolonged medical care (which may only be partly covered by the NHS) this could increase your potential compensation. If you had to stop working as a result of your injuries, leading to a loss of earnings, this could also affect the amount you are able to claim.
