While working as a bouncer may not seem to require many more qualifications than being of large build and possessing the ability to intimidate people who are smaller than you, working the doors of nightclubs is not right for everybody. People who have trouble keeping their emotions in check or who are prone to outbursts of violence probably should not be in the job. Despite this, some security firms or bar/club managers do take on individuals whose temperament might not be right for working the doors.
With a little good fortune, this might not result in any incident if an establishment’s clientele are fairly sedate of nature, but a trigger-happy bouncer and a young boisterous crowd hyped up on booze and drugs a good combination will not make. Sometimes, a wound-up bouncer might even take out his ire on innocent bystanders who have done nothing at all wrong. If you’ve been ejected from a club or bar in forceful fashion and sustained an injury as a consequence, you may be able to sue the employer of the bouncer for compensation.
Violent bouncers and injury solicitors in Cinderford
Security staff have a responsibility to deal with altercations using the bare minimum of force necessary. Unfortunately though, there are some who take pleasure in dishing out the rough stuff to people who are playing up, or sometimes, people they just don’t like the look of. If the force a bouncer uses is too excessive and results in somebody being injured, the hurt party might be able to seek a payout with the assistance of injury solicitors in Cinderford or another legal firm.
If you’ve been injured by a heavy-handed door worker, you’ll need to gather some evidence if your injury solicitor is going to be able to get you the compensation you deserve. Chances are, if you were assaulted by a bouncer outside a club or bar, the incident will have been caught on CCTV. You may also be able to use any smartphone footage a member of your party managed to shoot.
You’ll also need medical evidence that supports your claims. For this, you will have needed to have visited a doctor to have your injuries properly recorded. You should also contact the police.
