A law firm in Brymbo would probably be called upon by farmers and farm workers who are injured in the course of carrying out their duties on the many farms surrounding this small Welsh village; but as the village doesn’t have one, injury victims do what most people do, and go in search of a specialist injury claim solicitor from a national firm by doing an online search.
A brief economic history of Brymbo
Farming has been the main economic activity of Brymbo since time immemorial. There was a time however in the 19th and 20th centuries when coal and ironstone mining were the major employers. But all of the coal mines closed in the mid 1960s and the steelworks finally shut down the 1990s. Many people have since relocated, and farming is now once again predominant.
Coal mining was never one of the more healthy industries as far as workers are concerned, but neither is farming. In fact farming and agriculture is the most hazardous of all industries. In the past 10 years, a total of 436 deaths were registered under the RIDDOR system. That works out to nearly one fatality per week. In terms of non-fatal injuries, the figure is significantly higher, but it’s also highly inaccurate, because many self employed workers never correctly report the accidents or injuries they suffer.
The most dangerous industry of all
When compared to the rest of industry across the board, people who work in the farming and agricultural industry are three times more likely to suffer a serious injury in the workplace than workers in any other industry
The most common types of farming injury
The types of injuries that are most prevalent in farming and agriculture are as a result of contact with moving machinery parts, or a collision with some sort of moving vehicle (including tractors), or an incident involving livestock.
