The agricultural industry in Britain, sad to say, is one of the most dangerous working environments in the country. That’s not to say the people who work in it are unnecessarily careless; they’re not, but farm equipment and machinery, tractors, slurry tanks and animals are all dangerous beasts and circumstances can conspire in ways which are more hazardous than in other working scenarios. You are on this page because you have been searching for an accident solicitor in Devizes, and hopefully your accident is not too serious, or maybe you are searching on behalf of a colleague or loved one. Elderly people and minors too, need representation by others. The fact is, if you were injured and it was not your fault, and you know who was responsible, you could have a valid claim.
What would an accident solicitor in Devizes do for me?
His or her role is to prepare your claim. This means talking it through with you and getting all the facts and figures. If you had witnesses, they’re a great help. Your accident could have happened at any number of places. Maybe in a public place, the cleaner mopped up a spilled drink from a marble floor but forgot to put out warning signs. Marble is as slippery as ice when it’s wet, and just as dangerous. Maybe the forklift truck driver backed up in too much of a hurry, just when you were trying to finish shrinkwrapping the palette and caught you in the small of the back, sending you flying. Perhaps the idiot who crashed into you when taking the bend too fast, was on the wrong side of the road. Whatever, if somebody else was negligent or careless, you are entitled to have recompense to help put right the damage. When your claim is prepared it goes off to the defendant. If they accept it and make you an offer which is fair, all well and good, you could soon have that payment in your bank.
