Policeman loses bid for Industrial Injury Compensation

Constable Peadar Heffron, from Northern Ireland has lost his first attempt to apply for industrial injury compensation following a the explosion of a dissent republican bomb from underneath his car. The attack has left the policeman in a wheelchair and unable to return to work. However, the law has ruled that as the attach took place on Constable Heffron’ journey to work he was not on duty at the time and therefore cannot claim the compensation.

Officers are able to apply for the compensation from Industrial Injury Tribunal if the injuries eventually lead to the officer being unable to return to work to full time. It is not yet clear whether employment solicitors for Constable Heffron will continue forward with the claim.
