If you are thinking about making an injury claim in Little Tarrington-based, then perhaps you were the victim of an accident in which you were injured. Another reason for making an injury claim in Little Tarrington is that you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence.

Accidents on farms
You may work on a farm, and if you do, you know that far from being idyllic places to work, there are dangers. One of the most common accidents that occur on farms are those involving farm vehicles, tractors and so on. If a tractor overturns and you are crushed, then you might be seriously, if not fatally, injured.
If you work with animals, they can be unpredictable and it has been known for people to be trampled on, or crushed against gates and walls, by a herd of cows. They may look docile when they are chewing the cud in a lush, green field, but cows can be dangerous creatures.
Of course, it is not only farm labourers and farmers that are involved in accidents on farms, as often there are public footpaths going through farmland. If you walk your dog through a field of cows, keep it on a lead, so that a tragic accident can be avoided.
Farm accidents occur nearly every day of the year according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reports. Farming can also damage your health as one of the recognised occupational diseases is Farmer’s Lung, which is a respiratory disease usually contracted because of working in a dusty atmosphere, for example in a barn where grains are stored.
