    Here at Accident Advice Helpline we pride ourselves on the experience our injury solicitor in Scole have gained over the years.  Since 2000 we have been helping people, just like you, win the financial compensation that they deserve after they have been injured in accidents which were not their fault.

    Accidents can happen anywhere, from accidents involving vehicles on the road, accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists, accidents in public places, private buildings, and at work.  If you can think of a place where an accident can happen, then there is probably little chance that our injury solicitor in Scole has not already worked on a case just like that.

    Firefighters

    It goes without saying that some professions are more dangerous than others.  You are more likely to be injured if you work as a firefighter, than if you are an injury solicitor in Scole working in an office.

    However, that does not mean that if you work in a potentially dangerous environment, either all or simply some of the time, that you should accept accidents and injuries as part of the job.

    If a firefighter is injured whilst at work there is still the possibility that they could make a claim for personal injury, especially if the accident, and therefore the injuries themselves, could have prevented.

    Firefighters can be injured in any number of ways but the most common that we have dealt with include:

    • Road traffic accidents/collisions – as with any other road user, if a firefighter is injured whilst driving or riding in an fire vehicle, they will be able to make a claim for compensation against the driver of the vehicle who is responsible for the accident.
    • Training exercise accidents – firefighters frequently have to undergo regular training to ensure that they remain at the top of their game.  Such training exercises are designed to simulate real life situations as closely as possible, in order to gain the most experience and value from them.  Occasionally these training scenarios are a little too lifelike and accidents can occur.
    • Defective equipment – firefighters rely heavily on their personal protection equipment to ensure their safety whilst they are on a job.  Oxygen tanks can be the difference between life and death whilst in a smoke filled room.  If these pieces of equipment are not checked or maintained on a regular basis then the results can be disastrous.

    If you are a firefighter and have been injured in an accident at work, then you could make a claim against your employer.
