The experienced claim lawyers in Shropshire farmers can rely on
The experienced claim lawyers in Shropshire that people use, need to know all about the accidents and injuries that occur in the farming industry. Historically, much of Shropshire’s economy was based in the agricultural industry. Although there has been a tendency in recent years for people to migrate out of the farming industry, it still plays a major role in the county’s economy. Unfortunately, with its high rate of accidents (including fatalities), the agricultural, forestry and farming industry, is one of the riskiest working environments here in the UK, and that’s why personal injury lawyers are often called into help with injury compensation claims.
The experienced claim lawyers in Shropshire that the farming industry turns to
Here at Accident Advie Helpline, as experienced claim lawyers in Shropshire, we are no strangers to accidents that take place in the farming environment. We have a number of solicitors on our books who specialise in this field, and who are therefore in best position to be able to help farmers and farm-workers who, through no fault of their own, have been injured in accidents in the workplace. With AAH as the injury lawyers Shropshire farmers and farmhands can call upon when needs must, they have a strong ally standing by.
The Worrying Trend
Unfortunately, the accident rate appears to be increasing rather than declining. For example in 2008/9 203 out of every 10,000 workers sustained serious injury. In the year 2009/10 this figure rose to 242 out of every 10,000. More recent figures are not available at this point in time, but the trend is clearly a worrying one.
The accident rate is twice that of all other industries, apart from the construction industry, with which it is on a par. However, at least when accidents occur, the farming community knows that AAH can be relied upon to work diligently on their behalf to obtain appropriate compensation.
3 Important Prerequisites
The best place for anyone to start when thinking of launching a personal injury claim is the Accident Advice Helpline’s website. On our home page there is a HOW MUCH calculator. Within 30 seconds of completing the necessary information, any potential claimants can find out how much compensation they may be due. The most important factors to any legitimate claim are:
- The cause of the accident/incident must be the fault of a third party
- The accident/incident must have taken place in the last three years
- Proof of the circumstances and the nature of the injury will be required
If all of these requirements can be satisfactorily dealt with, then the injured party has a legal and moral right to claim compensation.
