Do you need to make a no win no fee Dorset compensation claim after working as a security guard?
Depending on where you work, working as a security guard can be a fairly dangerous job. Although most shops and supermarkets have security guards in store to prevent thefts, there are plenty of other industries which also hire security guards.
Construction firms, for example, often hire security guards in order to secure construction sites. As the materials and tools used to carry out the work can be of significant value, security guards are often used to help ensure that there are no thefts and that no unauthorised personnel gain access to the site. This can also be a much needed safety measure. If anyone was to enter a construction site without permission, they could end up with very serious injuries. By employing security personnel to guard the site, construction firms can help to protect their equipment and also prevent unnecessary injuries from occurring.
In order to cater for the needs of other businesses, many firms now specialise in providing security personnel. Banks and building societies, for example, often use security companies in order to deliver cash to each of their branches. As a great deal of money can be transported at one time, significant security measures are put into place in order to prevent any thefts occurring. For example, security personnel may wear helmets and bullet proof vests as well as drive armoured vehicles. In addition to this, most of the cash is carried alongside dye packs so that it can be traced if a theft was attempted.
Of course, security guards stationed in shops and supermarkets don’t tend to have all this equipment. If something goes wrong in store or someone becomes violent, they could potentially suffer an injury.
If you have been hurt whilst working as a security guard, it may be possible for you to make a no win no fee Dorset claim against your employer. If they have provided you with the right equipment or haven’t provided enough personnel to secure the area, your no win no fee Dorset compensation claim could be successful and you may be awarded compensation.
