Even the first census of 1801 divided the population of Bewcastle into those ‘chiefly employed in agriculture’, those ‘chiefly employed in trade, manufacturers or handicraft’, and others and two centuries later not a lot has changed in this field.
Agriculture is still one of the most dangerous areas to work. Although fatal accidents in farming have come down over the past 15 years, the rate is still well above any other industry, even construction and the emergency services!
The most common types of injuries seen by Injury Solicitors in Bewcastle in agriculture are as a result of negligence usually on an employer’s behalf. By law, employers must take responsibility for the health and safety of their employees. There are numerous laws and regulations in place to make sure that they do this. However, on occasions they do not adhere to correct health and safety measures that are required by law. When this results in an injury, employees have a legal right to make a claim for industrial injury compensation.
