    Accident Solicitor Tenbury Wells

    The ancient market town of Tenbury Wells is located in the north west of Worcestershire, around 40 miles south west of the city of Birmingham. The area is largely comprised of “prime” soils, which are conducive for a range of farm uses.

    Accidents on farms in Tenbury Wells

    Farm owners in Tenbury Wells are required by law to ensure that their farm workers are kept safe from harm. They must therefore keep hazards to minimum practical level and routinely inspect their farms for potential accident risks. When hazardous practices cannot be avoided, they must provide appropriate equipment and ensure that chemicals are used in accordance with COSHH regulations.

    When farm owners fail to fulfil all of their legal responsibilities, they are said to have failed in their duty of care and this constitutes negligence. A claim for farm accident compensation would therefore be possible for any farm worker who sustains an injury as a direct result of a farm owner’s negligence.

    Dealing with farm accident injuries

    Following an injury on a farm, a farm worker must visit their local doctor’s surgery or A&E department to receive any necessary treatment. The injury will be recorded in the farm worker’s medical records, making it possible for farm accident compensation to be claimed.

    A number of procedures must be followed before a farm worker can claim personal injury compensation. All farm owners must hold and maintain an accident book, in which they should detail any farm accidents that have occurred, including the reasons why the injuries were sustained.

    In most cases, the police will not need to be notified about farm accidents. However, the Health and Safety Executive must be made aware of any serious farm accidents.

    Claiming compensation through an accident solicitor Tenbury Wells

    While an injured farm worker can make a claim for compensation without the assistance of an accident solicitor in Tenbury Wells, the majority of claims in this field are pursued with legal assistance. Unfortunately, farm accident claims which involve cases of negligence have the potential to become very complicated, particularly when a farm owner chooses to deny liability or contest the damages proposed. The expert legal advice provided by a farm accident solicitor in Tenbury Wells can therefore make a difference to the outcome of the claim.

    To make the process of claiming compensation as simple as possible, Accident Advice Helpline provides access to a Freephone helpline offering professional legal advice. By calling the helpline, farm workers can access legal advice relating to their farm injury claims. So, call us now on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
