    Compensation for an injured farmhand

    We’re all familiar with farms to some extent; we’ve all driven past them and seen the animals in the fields and the crops growing to healthy sizes. We’re aware that lots of different tasks must be done for us all to benefit from the work the farmers do. However, some people are more aware of the work involved than others – the farmhands who take on that workload on a daily basis.

    All kinds of jobs go into farm work. It is a demanding job and one that tends to keep people in this profession quite fit. You have to be prepared to work in all weathers and to complete jobs whenever they need to be done. However, you should also know and be aware of the potential dangers that may be present in this work. While the majority of farms are safe places to be and the employers adhere to all the health and safety rules that apply to the workplace, there is the potential for things to occasionally go wrong. Farming is known to have a relatively high incidence of accidents and serious injuries. An injured farmhand may not be able to work for some time if they suffer an accident. Indeed it could change their life as a result.

    What kinds of injuries might they suffer?

    Animals, machinery and even fumes can all be potential dangers on a farm. Farmhands are mostly able to carry out their work in safety but it is imperative they are all properly trained for the roles they have to take on. In addition they should wear appropriate safety equipment and know how to limit dangers. Injuries might vary from relatively minor scrapes and bruises to far more serious ones, such as crush injuries and broken bones. These can threaten their lives, so it is important to understand and avoid potential hazards.
