Fenland accident at work claim

0

The farming industry has one of the worst records for accidents, and for serious injuries and deaths. These are not always workers, often visitors to farms are the injured and farming accidents are not an unusual reason for a Fenland accident at work claim.

The causes of accidents on farms that can be the reason for a Fenland accident at work claim

There are many ways accidents on farms can happen, such as:

  • Livestock attacking, particularly if they have youngsters and see the victim as a threat
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals and pesticides that are used on farms all the time
  • Accidents with farm machinery and equipment, some of which is very dangerous if not handled correctly
  • Falls into silos and grain stores
  • Falls from height
  • Things falling onto workers

Even though these are just a sample of farming accidents, you can see how dire the consequences could be, and why on average one person a week loses their life in a farming accident.

The farmer could be responsible for a Fenland accident at work claim

It is up to the farmers, as the employers, to protect the health and safety of their employers while they are and work, and to make sure that any visitors to the farm are safe as well. This could be a delivery driver, a vet or anyone else that goes to the farm, it is not just people visiting for pleasure that can be injured through no fault of their own.

Legally, anyone injured in any type of accident that was not their fault is entitled to compensation, providing the injuries were sever enough to need medical attention and the accident happened within the last three years.

Insurance cover for a Fenland accident at work claim

Farmers, just like most other employers, should have employer’s liability insurance in case the need for an employee to make a personal injury claim against them arises. They should also be covered for public liability in case it is a visitor to the farm that is injured and both of these insurances are normally part of an insurance package that covers all aspects that they need to be insured for.

It is this policy that would settle any personal injury claim made against them, and apart from maybe an increase in their premiums, financially the farmer should not be affected at all.
