    Personal injury compensation claims in Herefordshire

    Have you been left worrying about personal injury compensation claims in Herefordshire? Is this because of an occupational accident in an agricultural place of work? There are people who can help and we are one group of them – we are Accident Advice Helpline.

    Agricultural accidents

    Sadly, the accident rate for agricultural settings is still very high. No-one is completely sure why this is the case but it is thought that it may be something to do with the multiple skills that are needed in the agricultural environment and the tendency for agricultural workers to do a lot of jobs themselves rather than call in experts.

    If you take a close look at the potential hazards around an agricultural setting it is hardly surprising that accidents take place and Herefordshire is a very agricultural area.

    Farms that have livestock present a hazard when those livestock have to be handled. Animals (especially cattle) are much bigger and stronger than a human being and so it is hardly surprising that they can inflict nasty injuries if they are not handled correctly. Also, agriculture involves very powerful machinery and vehicles, all of which can be potentially very hazardous if precautions are not taken.

    Accidents and personal injury compensation claims in Herefordshire

    Not every agricultural accident will result in a personal injury claim. It is important to make that clear. A personal injury claim can only be considered if an employee in an agricultural setting is injured in an accident that was not their own fault. This means that someone else was to blame. That ‘someone’ is usually the employer.

    An employer can be to blame for an agricultural accident in many ways. They may have failed to risk assess a particular animal-handling task for example. They may have failed to maintain equipment correctly so that it became unsafe. They may have even failed to provide adequate training so that a worker did not know how to carry out a particular task safely.

    If this sounds like your situation, and you received medical attention for your injuries, you may be able to start a claim with us here at Accident Advice Helpline on our no win no fee scheme.
