Firefighters Injured In Jenners Blaze Could Be Due Compensation

January 26, 2023 By Jones Whyte Personal Injury Claims

Recently, a fire broke out at the Jenners building in Edinburgh and a number of firefighters were injured while bravely fighting the flames.

Jones Whyte extends our deepest sympathy and support to those firefighters and their families during this difficult time. We can only imagine the physical and emotional pain they are going through and wish them a speedy recovery.

It is important to note that, as public employees, firefighters have certain rights under the law. For example, they may be eligible for compensation and support to cover their medical expenses and lost wages. Additionally, if the injuries were caused by the negligence of another party, such as the building owner, the firefighters may also have a further claim for personal injury compensation.

It is crucial that injured firefighters and their families consult with a lawyer, Jones Whyte specialises in compensation claims arising from an accident in the workplace and personal injury law. Our experienced solicitors can help them navigate the legal process and ensure that their rights are protected.

Jones Whyte expresses our sorrow for the firefighters injured in the recent fire in Edinburgh and offers our support to them and their families. We also encourage them to contact Jones Whyte and seek legal advice to ensure they receive the compensation and support they deserve. We hope that they recover soon and return to their duties of protecting our communities.

Jones Whyte’s sincere condolences go out to the loved ones and colleagues of the firefighter Barry Martin who tragically died in the line of duty.
