    How to claim agriculture industry injury compensation

    Almost one person a week has been killed whilst carrying out agricultural work over the last 10 years. Despite the fact that around 1 in 100 workers work in the agriculture industry, accidents in the industry account for 1 in 5 fatal injuries – it’s the riskiest industry sector to work in. That’s not to say that you will definitely be injured if you work in agriculture, just that health and safety is of the utmost importance. Workers who have sustained injuries could find themselves eligible to make a claim for agriculture industry injury compensation.

    Most common agricultural accidents

    Health and safety is paramount for any farming business and taking risks when it comes to health and safety could lead to injuries to workers that could end up costing employers money – lone workers are especially vulnerable. Here are a few of the most common agricultural accidents:

    • Drowning/asphyxiation in a silo pit
    • Respiratory illness from inhaling dust or harmful chemicals
    • Fall from height
    • Slip, trip or fall
    • Injury caused by an animal
    • Contact with machinery
    • Struck by a moving vehicle
    • Injured by machinery/vehicle overturning
    • Electrocuted by overhead power lines
    • Chemical burns from pesticides/harmful chemicals

    As you can see, there are quite a few different types of accidents which could affect agricultural workers, and Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a claim for agriculture industry injury compensation if you’ve been hurt at work. Our professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, so even if your family has been financially affected after the death of a loved one in an agricultural accident, you can afford to claim with us.

    Next steps to claiming

    You may have suffered serious crush injuries after a tractor rollover or have been bitten by an animal at work. You may have sustained broken bones after a fall from height and been forced to take several months off work. We can help you claim personal injury compensation for any lost you have suffered due to your time off or cover those medical expenses that have left you and your family out-of-pocket.

    You can pick up the phone now and call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 for confidential, no-obligation advice. There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, so it makes sense to contact us as soon as you can after your accident – once you have received medical treatment.
