Farm injury lawyers in Rhuddlan handle farm injury claims
The farming industries record for accidents and deaths is almost as bad as the worst industry for these things in the country, the construction industry. According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the main difference is that there are nowhere near as many people work in farming. Farm workers account for only 1.7% of British workers, but for 16% of deaths among workers; 49 people a year lose their lives on farms.
If you are injured in an accident that was not your fault while on a farm, contact farm injury lawyers in Rhuddlan to discuss making a personal injury claim.
Farm injury lawyers Rhuddlan discuss the dangerous machinery
One of the problems on farms is the amount of dangerous machinery and vehicles. Tractors, forklift trucks, combine harvesters and road vehicles are just some of the vehicles on farms that could cause you a nasty injury if you come into contact with them at the wrong time. Having one of these run over your foot for example, could crush the foot and mean amputation. If this happened through no fault of your own, some time in the last three years, you would be able to make a personal injury claim using the services of farm injury lawyers in Rhuddlan.
Heights and objects
There are quite often high buildings on farms, which can result in either falls from them, or objects falling from them. Both of theses events could result in a serious injury and the need to make a personal injury claim.
