Accident Solicitor Ston Easton
The small village of Ston Easton, located between Bristol and Shepton Mallet, offers very few amenities, despite being on a major road. The main employers in the village include a nursing home, a hotel and several farms.
The farming industry in Ston Easton is one of the most dangerous industries in which you can find employment. If you are already employed in this industry, you will face a wide range of potential hazards on a daily basis, including:
• Farm vehicles
• Fertilisers, pesticides and other chemicals
• Large livestock
• Heavy loads
• Dangerous equipment, often with moving parts and sharp blades
• Slurry pits
As a farm worker, you should, in theory, be protected by health and safety measures put in place by your employer. For example, your employer must adhere to both the Health and Safety at Work Act and industry-specific pieces of legislation, such as the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations.
If your employer breaches their duties and you suffer personal injuries, you may be entitled to receive a large compensation settlement. Similarly, if you are a member of the public and you have been involved in an accident while visiting a farm in Ston Easton, you may also be entitled to compensation.
