Do you need to make Wellingborough personal injury claims after working for the emergency services?
Although working for the emergency services is known to be a dangerous job, management committees are required to ensure that staff have all the necessary equipment in order to make them as safe as possible. Whilst it is never possible to guarantee their safety, if members of the emergency services use all the appropriate safety equipment, it could prevent them from getting hurt and even save their lives.
For example, when on duty most police officers are required to wear stab proof vests and carry restraint equipment, such as handcuffs and a baton. If they are confronted by a violent member of the public, this equipment can help them to defuse the situation safely and protect them from any harm.
Similarly, firemen and women are given specialist safety equipment to wear so that they can enter burning buildings without suffering burns themselves. Without this, or their breathing apparatus, it is likely that they would suffer serious injuries, or even fatalities.
If you’ve worked for either the police force, the fire brigade or the ambulance service, you will be familiar with the dangers that members of staff face on a daily basis. If you’ve been hurt whilst on duty you may simply consider this to be part and parcel of the job. However, if your managers have failed to provide the right equipment for you to use, and you’re hurt because of it, you could go on to make Wellingborough personal injury claims against them.
Although making Wellingborough personal injury claims could help you to secure compensation for your injuries, it could also ensure that the same mistake isn’t made again and it could prevent someone else from getting hurt. In some cases, successful Wellingborough personal injury claims could even result in increased budgets to improve the safety of employees.
