Looking for solicitors in Blandford Forum?

If you have an injury from an accident, and you can prove – with your solicitor – that it was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. You can also file a claim against any person whose negligence you allege has caused your illness.

Although you usually have three years in which to make any type of personal injury compensation claim, some accidents and injuries carry a shorter limitation period in which you must file a claim. Check with an injury solicitor to find out how long you actually have in which to make your claim, as you wouldn’t want to lose compensation you are entitled to, would you?

Accidents on dairy farms

The area around Blandford Forum is a centre for dairy farming, and although you may have an idea about what life on a dairy farm is like, the reality is probably much harsher. In February 2014 a man who worked on a dairy farm in British Columbia, Canada, died when he fell into a hay mixer (which has spinning blades to chop up hay and turn it into feed for livestock).

In the UK in the ten year period between 2002 and 2012, 81 people died in accidents on farms keeping livestock.  One of the greatest risks involves handling cattle, especially when they are moving around in confined spaces. There is a danger of being crushed or trampled on, kicked and also of being gored. When livestock are being moved there is a risk of slipping, tripping or falling and so being injured. Rams’ and bulls horns can also provide to be deadly.

Members of the public have been injured while walking in footpaths through fields where there are cows, although usually these walkers have dogs with them that spook the cattle. You should exercise caution when walking near cows and if you have a dog keep it firmly under control.
