You might live and work close to Bicknoller and have had an accident which was not your fault. You might be looking for an accident solicitor in Bicknoller, or one close to where you live in the UK. Accident solicitors deal with personal injury compensation claims for accidents and work-related illnesses, or illnesses such as food poisoning. An accident solicitor in Bicknoller or elsewhere will probably specialize in certain types of compensation claims. Some will have expertise in dealing with claims arising from road accidents, others will specialize in work-related illnesses or accidents and still others will specialize in agricultural accidents if they work in a rural environment.
Accidents on farms
People who work on farms, those who are self-employed and their employees run the risks of having a serious accident every day. Contrary to popular belief, working in the “great outdoors” is not that great. There are risks of accidents involving the heavy machinery found on farms, tractors, threshers and so on, and because of the sharp blades that are part of some machinery, farm workers can find themselves with severe injuries to limbs which might have to be amputated.
Slips, trips and falls are the most common accidents and on a farm, when there are animals around, the dangers of slipping on a wet surface are increased. There have been accidents when workers are on silos or on a roof of an outbuilding, and they have fallen head first from a height, causing serious spinal or brain injuries.
Animals too are unpredictable and a cow or bull’s horns can inflict a severe injury, as a horn can puncture a lung and crack ribs. Heavy animals such as beef cattle can crush a foot if they stand on one and a person can get crushed against the side of a gate or building by one.
There are Health and Safety at Work regulations which cover work on farms, but sometimes these are not followed and so accidents occur. Unfortunately accidents on farms can involve children and other members of the public, as some public footpaths go through farmland.
