Although the Forest of Arden itself is, sadly, a shadow of its former self, it is still an important part of the landscape in Warwickshire as it acts as a buffer zone between Birmingham and Coventry, two of the biggest cities in the Midlands. Shakespeare must have roamed through this ancient forest, although he would not recognize what is left today as the one he had known.
Accidents happen everywhere, and if you live in the area around this forest, you may be looking for injury lawyers in Forest of Arden. To make a personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove that you were the innocent victim of an accident, or that your illness was caused by someone else’s negligence.

The Forest of Arden agricultural society is active in promoting traditional skills such as ploughing and hedging, using traditional methods. At least if you plough a field using horses, you are not in danger of losing a limb in a modern farming machine. People often believe that farming must be a healthy occupation as a farmer and farm labourer work outside in fresh country air. However this is a mainly romanticised view of farming.
This quote is taken from the Health and Safety Executive’s website: –
“Agriculture has one of the worst fatal accident and occupational ill-health records of any major employment sector.”
Fewer than 1.5% of the working population are employed in agriculture yet the sector is responsible for between 15% and 20% of fatalities to workers each year. The industry also has a rate of self-reported illness which is typically higher than the average for all industries.”
The most common accidents that occur on farms are those involving farm vehicles and falls from heights, perhaps from silos or barn roofs. Children can also be injured in farm accidents, sometimes fatally.
