Does my Police Federation membership cover me for Health and Safety issues?
Police work is often dangerous and officers will face many risks to their health and safety during the course of their duties. Accidents and other work-related injury or illness cause considerable expense in terms of sickness absence, in addition to the distress and ill health suffered by the officers. All too often these problems could have been prevented with minimal cost or effort had proper regard been given to issues of health and safety.
We can advise on health and safety issues as well as bringing claims for officers through the courts and employment tribunals where health and safety legislation has been breached. We also have expertise in enforcement procedure, including prosecution.
Why should I pursue my personal injury claim through the Police Federation?
Your personal injury claim will be covered by the Police Federation and you won’t be required to have Legal Expense Insurance. Your claim will also not cost you or the Police Federation anything, even if the claim isn’t successful, as we take all the risk.
If your claim is successful, you will retain 100 per cent of the damage we recover on your behalf. Most lawyers will charge up to 25 per cent of a client’s damages if they bring a claim for injuries caused by other people’s negligence.
We’re specialists in personal injury and ensuring the right amount of compensation for police officers injured on duty and off is awarded.
How do I start a personal injury claim?
If you’ve suffered a personal injury, either on or off duty contact your local branch board in the first instance for more information or to discuss your claim.
