Some jobs are more dangerous than others. Most people would probably accept that you’ll stand a higher chance of being injured while doing your job if you work on an oil platform than you would sat doing some admin work at home. Then there are jobs that could put you at risk of being attacked. Vocations such as police officer, security guard or prison warder immediately spring to mind.
People who do these jobs deal with individuals and situations they expect could turn nasty, but sometimes people in jobs that would not typically be associated with dangerous or violent scenarios can end up getting hurt, especially when dealing with highly-charged political or social issues that they or other parties feel especially passionate about.
If ever find yourself being injured while doing a job of this nature, you might be able to use the services of a top 100% no win no fee* solicitor in Great Yarmouth to sue the responsible party for compensation, no matter the reason they had for acting in a manner that caused you harm.
Political and social activism and solicitors in Great Yarmouth
Sometimes, certain jobs can put people at risk of being targeted by political activists who in some way view the work they do or the company they work for as objectionable. Occasionally, activists can target some workers in a way that could put them at risk of being injured.
Some particularly militant activists can even put workers’ lives at risk. If you are hurt as a result of the actions of activists while trying to do your job, you should get in touch with a decent solicitor in Great Yarmouth to look into whether or not you might be able to claim compensation from the guilty party.
Perhaps you’re an anti-foxhunting monitor who’s been attacked and injured by pro-hunt lobbyists. Maybe you work at a facility that undertakes animal experiments and have been in some way injured as a result of the actions of animal rights campaigners. Maybe you were doing your job as a security guard looking over a fracking site when demonstrators who objected to the practice took action that resulted in you being done a mischief.
In some cases similar to these, you might even be able to take some form of solicitors in Great Yarmouth action against your employer if you could prove that it failed to keep you safe from being injured in an accident that was not your fault.
