Liability of Emergency Services

Forbes has extensive experience of representing the Emergency Services in relation to their motor, public and employer's liability litigation over many years. We have represented a number of our clients in these fields for more than 20 years. Our success has been based on understanding fully the nature of the organisations we represent and the circumstances in which our clients are asked to perform highly professional yet demanding public services. Having the trust of our clients is critical to building a successful relationship.

Examples of cases in which Forbes has recently been involved include:-

  • Representing a Fire and Rescue Service in relation to a fatal accident involving two fire fighters.
  • Providing a full claims handling and investigation service to a Fire and Rescue Authority for all their Employer's Liability claims both pre and post litigation.
  • Representing an Ambulance Service on a high profile stress claim involving national media interest.
