Emergency services workers typically accept that their job can place them in dangerous situations, and a firefighter, policeman or medic can sustain serious injuries in emergency service accidents. Emergency services accidents can cause serious or even fatal injuries and the consequences of such an accident or injury can have a devastating effect on an individual’s life, and the lives of their family.
Employers in the emergency services owe the same duty of care to their employees as any other employer owes to their workers. This includes providing their emergency staff workers with a safe system of work, appropriate work equipment and sufficient training – preventing, where possible, emergency service accidents that can result in serious injury or death.
Those affected by emergency service accidents may suffer financial loss, loss of earnings and the need to pay for on-going treatment and care. They may also suffer on-going pain and disability, as well as psychological issues caused by pain and stress.
