Security staff, disproportionate force and our personal injury claim calculator in Knowsley
Imagine that you were out on a Friday evening at a bar. It’s the end of the week, and everybody is winding down by having a few drinks. Some of your group has started to behave in a rowdy fashion and have attracted the attention of the bouncers. As things start to get even more boisterous, the security staff decide enough is enough and ask you and your drinking companions to leave.
Some of the people you are with object to this, saying they had done nothing wrong. The security staff decide that they want you gone, so physically remove you or the premises. You are manhandled out the door, and suffer a rather nasty injury as you are turfed out. Under these circumstances, there will be a chance that you might be able to seek a compensation pay-out for what happened to you. Depending on how badly you were hurt, you could be looking at a pay-out that could amount to several thousands of pounds.
