Firefighters are often injured by defective ladders, roofs, personal protective equipment and faulty premises and as there is no Statutory Compensation Scheme for Firefighetrs, unlike Gardai and Prison officers, they often have no choice but to pursue negligence claims against property owners and their employers.
Just because they perform a dangerous job does not mean that they have to suffer the consequences of their injuries without being properly compensated for them. Firefighters regularly unfortunately receive the following types of injuries while on duty;-
• Severe burns
• Smoke inhalation
• Chemical reactions
• Head injuries
• Back and neck injuries
• Eye injuries
Moloney & Co. Solicitors help injured Fire personnel and their families recover fair compensation for personal injuries sustained while at work. Our experienced Solicitors will thoroughly investigate your claim, build the strongest case possible and hold all responsible parties accountable.
Time limits for bringing a claim
The time period is two years from the date the injury occurred and therefore it is important that a Firefighter takes immediate action to protect his legal rights.
