Farms are hazardous places – in fact, there is a higher rate of fatal accidents in the agricultural industry than in any other industry. Farms are even more dangerous for children, and if your children are with you whilst you’re working on a farm or are visiting a farm, they should be kept in a safe place such as a children’s play area. Here are just a few of the hazards lurking which could lead to child farm injuries:
- Heavy machinery
- Farm vehicles such as tractors and combines
- Sharp tools
- Dusty environments
- Slurry pits
- Farm animals on the loose
- Toxic chemicals such as pesticides
Children could be exposed to any of these things, which could lead to child farm injuries. If your child has been hurt on a farm, the farm owner could be held liable, which may mean you’re able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Call us and we’ll offer confidential, no-obligation advice; our team of expert personal injury advisors have years of experience helping people just like you to claim.
How has your child been injured?
Whether your child has suffered minor or serious injuries, claiming compensation is possible if you believe that health and safety breaches or negligence led to their accident. Perhaps they have suffered some of the following injuries:
- Broken bones
- Crush injuries
- Head injuries
- Facial injuries
Some of these injuries could be extremely serious, requiring surgery and ongoing treatment – your child may even die from their injuries or be left permanently disabled. We’re here to make sure our services are affordable to everyone, so our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis. You have nothing to lose by getting in touch to see if you’re eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
How hard is making a claim?
It doesn’t have to be difficult to make a claim for personal injury compensation. If your child has been injured in a farm accident, the last thing you need is more stress and worry and we’re here to make the claims process as simple as possible. The good news is that most personal injury claims never end up in court – it’s likely your claim will be settled out of court, so that’s one thing less for you to worry about.
