    Compensation for crush injuries on a farm

    Have you ever considered what it might be like to work on a farm? Perhaps you already know if you work as a farmhand and you have undertaken an assortment of jobs on a farm. If this is the case it is important to know and understand how you might stay safe in this situation. There may be many potential hazards on a farm, and if these are not noted and dealt with it could potentially raise the chances that an accident could occur.

    Crush injuries on a farm might happen if someone is crushed by machinery, or crushed between two objects and cannot escape. In some cases there is the potential to suffer crush injuries if you are riding something up a slope and it tips over on you. This is why it is imperative that everyone working on a farm knows how to take proper safety precautions. These precautions can make all the difference between suffering serious injuries and avoiding them altogether because you took the proper precautions. With a high rate of injuries on farms according to the HSE, it is imperative that we reduce these numbers as much as possible.

    How severe might crush injuries be?

    These injuries can be life-threatening in some circumstances. In some instances someone might suffer a crushed hand or fingers, but while this might seem less dangerous it could potentially lead to the loss of one or more digits, or the loss of movement. In other cases it might potentially mean a person’s torso is crushed. In this case broken bones and potentially even crushed organs might result from such an accident. People have suffered injuries such as these in some workplaces and have been unable to return to work as a result.
