    Injury Claim in Uppingham

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Uppingham

    Involved in a farming accident? You may be able to make an injury claim in Uppingham

    If you have been injured whilst at work then you could make an injury claim in Uppingham. All employers have a duty of care to protect their workers from harm, and to reduce the hazards of the working environment.

    The market town of Uppingham in Rutland, England is known for its agricultural links and holds a livestock show in the town centre every year. Farmers from the local area bring their animals to take part in competitions held in the market square.

    Accidents in the agricultural sector

    The Health and Safety Executive considers farming to be one of the most dangerous industries. Reportable injuries, including fatalities, are far more common in agricultural businesses compared to many other sectors of employment. The risk of occupational illness must also been taken in account when managing the health and safety of a farm.

    If a farm worker is injured, or develops an occupational illness, whilst at work then an injury claim in Uppingham can be made. Typical accidents might be caused by:

    • The use of machinery which has not been adequately maintained to current safety standards, or which workers are not sufficiently trained to use.
    • The unpredictability of livestock, and insufficient strategies to cope with this.
    • Being exposed to dangerous chemicals without adequate safety protection.
    • Hearing loss caused by using noisy equipment without hearing protection.
