Are you claiming for injuries in Kirkcaldy and Dysart?
When you travel by plane, you may be required to go through customs upon reaching your destination. When you return to the United Kingdom, you may need to go through customs again if you have anything to declare. In some cases, this may mean that you need to pay additional funds to bring purchased items into the country. In some cases, customs officers may ask you to consent to a search so that they can ensure that you aren’t smuggling any prohibited items into the country.
Whilst customs and security officers are given specific powers regarding searches, they aren’t permitted to harm anyone or cause any injuries. If you are hurt whilst going through the security procedures, you may want to report it immediately. As there will be medical facilities at the airport, you should be able to access medical help quickly, if you require it. In addition to this, you could also make a compensation claim, if you’re planning on claiming for injuries in Kirkcaldy and Dysart.
Making a compensation claim
Whilst it may be appropriate for customs or security officers to restrain people on occasion, they certainly shouldn’t do this unnecessarily. During their training period, they are taught how to restrain people without causing injury, so they shouldn’t harm anyone if this needs to be carried.
