    Compensation for farm vehicle injuries


    Most farms have a wide variety of vehicles that are used during the farming process. For example, there may well be tractors on site, alongside combine harvesters, 4x4s and even fork-lift trucks as well. All these vehicles can potentially be dangerous if people do not take appropriate care around them. For example, employers have a duty of care towards their employees and also towards anyone who might visit their farm. This means they have to make sure they can provide appropriate safety measures whenever farm vehicles are in use, and even when they are stationary.

    Farm vehicle injuries can potentially occur in all kinds of situations. For example hazards are present on farms that should be (and normally are) identified and dealt with to minimise any chance of an accident occurring. For example a particular route across a field might be sloping too steeply to allow a vehicle to stay upright. By assessing and identifying this risk the person driving the vehicle will find a different route that is far safer and allows far less opportunity for a potential accident to occur. This is just one example – there are many more safety measures that can be taken.

    What types of injuries might occur when farm vehicles are involved?

    A vehicle may potentially tip over and hurt those on or in it. In another situation someone might find their foot is run over if they get in the way of a vehicle while someone else is moving it. Appropriate measures should always be identified and put in place to ensure everyone on a farm is safe at all times. This holds true regardless of whether they use farm vehicles or whether they are in the vicinity of them when they are being used.
