Accidents on Farms
If you have an accident on farmland that was not your fault, but caused by the farmer’s negligence, then you may have grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim against the farmer. Accidents on farms occur when the general public has access to farms as well as to farm workers who work on a farm daily.
Despite the fact that fewer than 1.5% of Britain’s workforce are employed on a farm, of the fatalities which occur at work, between 15 and 20% of them happen in the agricultural sector. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the body which oversees the Health and Safety at Work regulations and the following figures come from their website.
436 people have been killed on farms in the past ten years – almost 1 person every week. Of these fatalities, 140 were farm workers, 245 were self-employed ((e.g. farm owners) and 51 were members of the public, with 19 of this number being children under the age of 16.
If you visit a farm to pick your own fruit, or walk through a field with livestock in it, you should exercise care, and it is especially vital to take extra care with children.
