Redbourne is a village in North Lincolnshire surrounded by agricultural land. These days, agriculture is a highly regulated and organised industry with a range of rules, regulations and guidelines to protect the health of the animals, as well as the people who tend them, and to safeguard food safety. If these guidelines are not strictly adhered to, then an agricultural employee may be injured in an accident that was not their own fault. As a result, they may need to consult a lawyer who works for no win no fee* on Redbourne agricultural cases.
Here are some examples of the safeguards that have been introduced to help prevent people looking for lawyers working for no win no fee* on Redbourne agricultural cases.
Farming is a highly mechanised industry. This enables one employee to work the same area of land that would have kept several men in work hundreds of years ago. There is inevitably an impact on profits and productivity as farming has become more efficient. However, not everyone supports a great deal of mechanisation; some feel that machinery has caused job losses in rural economies and a serious impact on the environment.
A claim can be started for an agricultural accident if an employee is injured in an accident that was not their fault. Agricultural machines are potentially very dangerous, but there are ways of reducing the risks. Firstly, the machines should only be used for the purposes for which they were intended. Secondly, the machines are much safer if they are maintained properly and regularly checked for defects. Finally, the people operating the machines should be properly trained to do so.
Modern farming involves a lot of chemicals, some of which are potentially dangerous if they are not handled properly. A safe system of work must be put in place so that the safest chemical for the job is always selected and then risk assessed, from storage through use and finally to disposal. Again, training of the people using the chemicals is vital. Protective clothing is also necessary for some chemicals.
The bottom line
If there has been a lapse in health and safety and an employee has been injured, there is plenty of help that they can easily access. All they have to do is call Accident Advice Helpline to get all the legal help and support they need. They will be allocated a personal injury lawyer to help them make a claim for compensation – this is money that the employee may receive both for the injury that they have suffered and for money that they have lost because they were injured.
