There are many thousands of people in the United Kingdom right now who have undertaken to become members of the emergency services in order to ensure that we are safe on our streets and in our homes.

As a member of the emergency services, not only are you dealing with highly volatile members of the public in dangerous situations but you are also at risk of being injured as the result of an accident that could have been avoided if perhaps further training had been given or new equipment had been issued.
An accident caused by the general public
If you are a member of the emergency services then it is taken as read that you accept a certain level of risk during the undertaking of your job, however there are times when accidents occur that aren’t your fault which may leave you in a position where you could be eligible to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Pendle. Sometimes accidents and injuries can occur because of the public and the manner in which they conduct themselves in certain circumstances and this is no more evident than when alcohol has been consumed. If you have been hurt by a member of the public during the carrying out of your duty and the injuries you suffered were as a result of their behaviour then you may be eligible to make a claim for accident at work compensation Pendle.
