Often when we think about people that put themselves in danger while performing their jobs, we think of emergency responders like the police or fire department. And obviously, on almost a daily basis, these men and women find themselves in situations where they could be seriously injured or even killed.
There are many other occupations throughout Indiana where people puts themselves in the way of danger to perform their duties, and security guards are one of those positions. Just last week a security guard was hurt while trying to stop two men from breaking into a pickup truck at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
When the men were confronted, they jumped in their mini-van and sped through the parking lot. Either intentionally or in their rush to escape, they struck the guard with their vehicle. To make matters worse, they left the injured guard and continued to flee the scene. The hit-and-run accident left the security officer with a broken arm.
Unfortunately at the time it was reported the men that hit the guard have yet to have been found, and the Indiana State Police are still on a hunt to track them down. As when anyone is hurt in the line of duty, as personal injury lawyers in Indianapolis we hope the guard has a swift recovery and the men that hurt him are brought to justice. We also hope that you’ll always give the men and women who serve us in either the police force or as guards the respect they deserve.
