Tucked away within the Peak District, the Derbyshire Dales is a region that is near the River Derwent. It is a region that has borders with Sheffield and South Derbyshire. Being an area that has a relatively high amount of large space available, there are a number of agricultural developments to be found in the region.
Those working in the agricultural industry, will often find themselves working with dangerous chemicals, as they might need to use pesticides, or herbicides in order to help the growth of crops. However, whilst they are working with such chemicals, there is also a danger present, since those working with the chemicals might accidentally ingest these chemicals, or spill them on their skin.
Depending on the chemical in question, the dangers present will vary. Yet in most cases it is the case that whenever these chemicals come into contact with bare skin, the skin itself needs to be thoroughly washed. For some chemicals, washing the skin might not be enough, and there may be a need for medical attention.
Seek immediate medical attention
Medical attention might be a greater requirement, when a dangerous chemical has come into contact with the eyes of a person, or has been ingested by someone. Anyone who finds themselves in a potentially dangerous situation, regarding chemicals, must seek out a doctor, to allay any doubts that they might have about whether or not they’re healthy or not.
If an injury related to a chemical, happens because of another person being careless, then the person is entitled to make farming accident claims in Derbyshire Dales.
Who can claim?
Nevertheless, when you are making a claim, there are some things that you should always remember and account for. For instance, when you are trying to make a claim, keep in mind that you can only claim for accidents that have taken place within the past three years. You must also be sure that the accident you are claiming for, must have been caused by someone else’s negligence.
