The latest Health and Safety Executive statistics show that agriculture, forestry and fishing is the most dangerous industry in which to work. Given the type and size of machinery used in agriculture these figures are not surprising, so what can victims of industrial accidents do to get compensation for their injuries?
An accident that occurs whilst using any type of industrial machinery can result in serious injuries, including loss of limbs, broken bones and extensive burns. Personal injury cases such as these are often long and complex and require the specialist knowledge of a solicitor experienced in dealing with industrial accidents.
