There’s no reason why you should know how to claim for a farming accident if it’s something that you’ve never done before, and for your sake, we certainly hope it’s something that only happens to you once in your life. Any accident can be traumatic, but farms are dangerous places, and if you’re working with livestock or farm machinery, you’ll appreciate just how dangerous they can be. If you’ve had an accident and would like to claim compensation for your injuries, get in touch with us here at Accident Advice Helpline and see what we can do for you.
How to claim for a farming accident
Accident Advice Helpline was established in the year 2000 to help people like you make personal injury claims. We’re a law firm who specialise only in accident claims. We try to ensure that claiming compensation is easy and stress free. One simple phone call is usually all it takes, and we can explain how to claim for a farming accident then and there.
There are a number of criteria that apply to every claim that we take on. Before you call us, see if you can answer yes to these questions:
- You had an accident in the last three years
- The accident was not your fault
- The injuries you received in the accident required medical treatment.
This latter point is important. We’ll need to access your medical records to have a look at your injuries, and see the treatment plan. It doesn’t matter whether your injuries were mild or severe, you can still make a claim, it’s just that when we’re building your case, the severity of your injuries is always taken into account.
We’ll also need to know whether there is any other evidence that will help us with your claim. Do you have witnesses, or witness statements, for example? Is there any CCTV footage? Or did you or somebody who knows you take photos of the scene? All of these things can help, so let us know.
Have you had on-going treatment, involving multiple visits to the hospital, or have you been receiving physiotherapy? And what about your expenses? Have you had to take unpaid time off work? Has your accident and the resulting injuries curtailed your driving or any other things you take for granted? Tell us everything.
