Have you had a farming accident?
With many regular tasks involving working with farm machinery or animals within potentially hazardous conditions, many farmers and farm workers have accidents every year. In fact, according to the Health and Safety executive, working on a farm is one of the most dangerous occupations in the UK, with accident rates higher than any other industry.
If you work on a farm, your employer has a legal responsibility to keep you as safe as possible whilst you work.
If you’ve been injured in a farming accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a farm injury compensation claim.
The dangers of working on a farm
With heavy machinery, animals, and exposure to dust and chemicals, a farm can be a dangerous place.
The most common causes of accidents on a farm include:
- Machinery such as tractors
- Cattle, livestock, and other animals
- Falls from height
- Falling objects
- Chemicals and other dangerous substances
- Grain silos and slurry pits
- Exposure to high levels of noise and vibration
Of course, it’s not just farm workers who are at risk, guests and visitors can also be injured in accidents on farms.
The most common types of farming injuries
From quad bike accidents to farm tractor accidents, a whole host of injuries can occur on a farm. Some of the most common types of farming injuries include:
- Strains & sprains
- Injured by an animal
- Contact with farm machinery
- Asbestos poisoning
- Farmer’s lung
No matter what the injury, if you’ve been involved in a farming accident that wasn’t your fault, we can help you get the compensation you’re entitled to.
