It is important to note that security guards, despite their beefy exterior and able-bodied physique, need help from injury as well. These are individuals that often put their lives on the line for other people so that the individuals and businesses or residential areas they are guarding are kept safe at all times, and pretty much throughout the year, including weekends. Security guards usually have some formal training or experience in the armed forces having gone to work with the military or other private security firms after police academy training, and with the state of the world and an increase in shootings, property theft in places like Florida as well as the encroachment of gangs into certain cities, their services are needed more than ever. However, what happens when a security guard is injured or assaulted? Who really takes the fall, and how will the guard seek reprieve or justice? Filing a security guard workers’ compensation claim is ideal, but if the injuries are extensive, necessitating a long period off work so one can recover, filing a lawsuit to recover money damages may be in order, and we’re here to help with that.
