Road Traffic Accident with an Emergency Vehicle

Emergency vehicles are an incredibly important part of society and it’s due to the dedication and commitment of these team members that many lives are saved across the UK each year. Unfortunately, while they are sometimes in a hurry, members of the emergency services can be negligent in their driving and as a result this can lead to a collision with a motor vehicle.

If you have been involved in an accident of this type then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred as a result. 

What injuries could I sustain?

Road accidents of this type can often be quite severe as usually an emergency vehicle is travelling at quite a high speed to quickly reach its intended destination, as a result some of the common injuries that you could claim for include:

  • Broken limbs and fractures which can result from a high speed impact
  • Head injuries including potential brain damage or loss of memory
  • Concussion
  • Cuts, lacerations and grazes resulting from broken glass
  • Potential death if the accident is severe.

Who could I claim against?

Making a claim against the emergency services may seem like the wrong thing to do, but what you need to remember is that in most situations they are covered by insurance which will pay out in the event of a personal injury claim. Although the emergency services are doing an important job, it does not give them the right to be reckless on the road and if their negligent driving has led to you sustaining injuries then you could be eligible to make a claim against them to recoup any potential financial damages that you have incurred as a result.
