If you’re an agricultural worker, you may have thought about how you could be involved in a farming accident easily through the course of your employment. It’s a scary thought isn’t it? Of course you’re working with tractors and machinery on a daily basis, as well as chemicals and fertilizers, not to mention a range of unpredictable animals.
The variety of injuries that could be sustained from a farming accident is quite breath-taking, and here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’d like to think we’ve seen them all, unfortunately that probably isn’t the case. Just when we think we’ve dealt with something pretty nasty, another client comes along and tells us their story of how they came to be injured too. While we wish everyone was capable of staying safe whilst working on a farm, it’s our job to find compensation for those of our clients who have suffered a farming accident and want to make a claim against the person liable.
Being aware of danger
Nobody goes to work on a farm without understanding the dangers of livestock on a farm or the dangers of machinery on a farm, do they? In many cases you need training and licences to work with machinery. Yet, every day we see instances where there has been no training, and where safety protocols have been completely ignored. Negligence and carelessness are at the heart of most accidents that we see, among workers and visitors to farms alike. People seem to ignore the dangers of vehicles on a farm too, perhaps imagining a world full of soft fields and fluffy clouds, forgetting that cars and machinery can injure and maim for life.
