Accident Solicitor in Spilsby

Given its predominantly rural setting, farming plays an important role in the prosperity of the market town of Spilsby in Lincolnshire. While the farms in Spilsby are very much at the centre of the community, accidents do happen here and they can affect both farm workers and members of the public.

Typical causes of accidents on farms

Farms are dangerous places to work. Vehicles, tools and machinery are in constant use and their operation requires considerable physical exertion. Furthermore, large farm animals, such as horses and bulls, can be very unpredictable and have the potential to cause serious injuries.

Over one quarter of all fatal farming accidents result from moving vehicles, such as tractors, combine harvesters, diggers, 4×4 vehicles and forklift trucks. Other causes of fatal farm accidents include falls from heights, moving or falling objects, contact with dangerous machinery and electric shocks.

Some of the most common causes of non-fatal accidents include manual handling, slips, trips and falls, and injuries caused by falling, flying or moving objects. Injuries caused by animals and the use of complex machinery also contribute to a considerable number of non-fatal accidents.

Common farm accident injuries

Some of the most common types of injuries and illnesses sustained on farms include:

• Broken bones
• Concussion
• Crushed limbs
• Asphyxiation
• Burns
• Respiratory disorders
• Hearing loss

Not all farming injuries are sustained as a result of physical accidents. Hazardous substances, such as pesticides and animal medicines, can cause serious illnesses when they are not stored or handled correctly.

Duty of care

All farm owners must comply with health and safety regulations to ensure that people stay safe while on their land. Those who fail to protect against personal injuries risk receiving numerous compensation claims.
