Brandon is a small village in South Kesteven, south Lincolnshire. The majority of the employment in the village belongs to agriculture and has done for generations — with the pastures and rivers, it is ideal farming land. However, Accident Advice Helpline understand that agriculture is, and has always been, the most dangerous industry to work in and results in more fatalities each year than any other industry.
Employees of agriculture are at a higher risk of fatal injuries and industrial diseases such as hearing loss and lung disease. Dangers from chemical use, loud machinery and enduring prolonged exposure to the elements can bring on a variety of ailments, some of which take years to fully develop and reveal themselves.
An injury lawyer in Brandon can help you to receive the compensation you fully deserve for your work-related injuries. If all you have done is been an innocent employee and it has resulted in an accident or lifelong disease, then we see this as extremely unfair and strongly believe that you should see a financial ‘reward’ as a way of justice.
Employees subconsciously place a lot of trust in their employers to protect their safety and health while they are at work. This can have been failed in many ways, such as:
- Incorrect or insufficient training given;
- Incorrect safety equipment provided such as ear defenders, boots, gloves, goggles, breathing apparatus and protective clothing;
- Inadequate breaks given;
- Overexposure to the elements;
- Working longer hours than European laws allow;
- Hazardous working conditions, such as electric faults being left; and
- Machinery not kept to safe standard or regularly maintained.
