Emergency Services: Law and Liability

Emergency Services: Law and Liability




Emergency Services is a comprehensive survey of the legal liabilities of the three main UK emergency services (police, fire, and ambulance), written by a team of specialists in public authority liability claims. This new work sets out the legal and regulatory framework in which these services operate and the potential liabilities that arise from the performance of their statutory duties. It covers in detail the public liability of each service, including liability for the negligent treatment of victims and negligent rescue. It deals with employer's liability in respect to the unique tasks carried out by employees of emergency services. Other issues specific to one or more of the services, such as malfeasance, pensions, and disciplinary proceedings, are also covered in detail.
