Accident Advice Helpline is one of the UK’s most sought after personal injury law firms that process claims for injuries that have been sustained in the farming industry.
The Gateway to Dartmoor
Bovey Tracey is a delightful small town on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon. The two largest industries here in Bovey Tracey are tourism, (Bovey Tracey is known as the Gateway to Dartmoor), and agriculture, even though in recent years, many farms have been forced to close following the last foot and mouth epidemic, and in the face of growing competition from foreign food imports.
Agriculture Industry Injury Statistics
The agriculture industry is the most dangerous industry to work in, even more so than the construction industry. The statistics make for sorry reading:
- Responsible for 15% to 20% of all industrial fatalities
- Employs only 1.5% of industrial labour pool
- Nearly 1 fatal injury per week
- 25% of non-fatal accidents not reported
- Only 5% of non-fatal accidents reported in the self employment sector
As you can see from the above, accident statistics are grossly understated because of severe underreporting.
