Downham Market sits in a mainly agricultural area of the UK. This means there are quite a few people employed on farms, and that farmers, just like all other employers, have a legal duty to ensure your safety while you are at work. If they fail in this responsibility you may need the help of an accident solicitor in Downham Market to claim the compensation you could be entitled to.
The dangers of farms
More accidents happen on farms than in any other industry. We all tend to think of farms as places where animals roam, crops are grown and as being generally quite safe. But they have many dangers attached to them such as:
- Livestock that attacks, especially if they think their young may be under threat
- Large pieces of machinery, much of it with big heavy blades
- Vehicles delivering to and collecting from the farm
- Grain silos which can be fatal if a worker falls into one
- Hay barns are often at height and employees can fall from them
- Livestock can pass on diseases if the proper precautions are not taken
These few examples show just some of the hazards farm workers face. Visitors to farms are also vulnerable, and the farmer needs to ensure their safety as well.
