    Compensation for vets injured on farms

    Compensation for vets injured on farms

    As a vet, the chances are that you’ll probably have to visit a farm at least once throughout your career, especially if you live in a rural area. You might not think that farms are dangerous, but there can be a number of hazards which could lead to injury. Across the UK, vets injured on farms have successfully claimed compensation with Accident Advice Helpline, and we could help you to claim too.

    Vets injured on farms could be injured in a variety of different ways – here are just a few examples:

    • Injured by animals – such as cows, pigs and sheep – kicking;
    • Injured after a fall from height;
    • Contracting diseases such as foot and mouth disease;
    • Injured by sharp tools or needles whilst administering medical care; or
    • Being attacked by loose animals.

    We can help you to make a claim for personal injury compensation, so if you’ve been injured on a farm then contact our expert personal injury advisors for confidential, no-obligation advice.

    Farm health and safety

    When you’re working on a farm, the farmer has a responsibility to keep you safe. This means that there are certain health and safety procedures and processes they must follow in order to minimise the risk of accidents occurring. Ultimately, they are liable if anything happens to you that could have been avoided. The BVA publishes guidance on farm health and safety, which could help to ensure that farms are safe places for vets to work.

    However, if you are a vet who has been injured, you shouldn’t automatically assume that it is your own fault. It may be that the farmer for whom you’re working has been negligent and you could make a claim for personal injury compensation. We offer a 100% no win no fee* service, so even if you have suffered loss of earnings after having to take time off work to recover from your injuries, you can afford to claim with us.
