Farm Accidents

Farms are notoriously dangerous workplaces because not only are workers having to work around lots of different machinery, they are also working in very busy environments and with unpredictable animals. However, it isn't only farm workers who suffer accidents at farms, children and members of the public can also be injured or killed, and, according to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics, the agricultural world has one of the worst accident, occupational ill health and fatality records of any of the major employment sectors.

If you have been injured, or someone you love has been killed or injured, in a farm accident that was not your fault, then you should be able to make a personal injury claim. Compensation, no matter how large the award, can never fully compensate you for your injuries or for the death of a loved one, but it can help you to rebuild your life, pay your expenses, help provide for dependants and also stop the accident happening to someone else. You taking the farm or employer to court should make them look at their health and safety policy and help protect other workers or members of the public.

Different types of Farm Injury

There are many types of farm accidents that you may be able to claim for, but whatever your accident or injury, as long as you were injured (or a close relative was affected) and it was someone else's fault, you should be eligible for claiming personal injury compensation. Here are some examples of farm accidents:-

  • Dangerous animals - Working with any type of animal can be hazardous but farm animals can be even more so because of their size.
  • Ill health caused by using vibrating tools - Conditions like Vibration White Finger can be caused by working with vibrating power tools without adequate protection or rest breaks.
  • Ill health caused by exposure to dust or hazardous substances like chemicals and pesticides. Dust exposure can lead to "Farmer's Lung".
  • Accidents caused by farm vehicles like forklifts, tractors and combine harvesters.
  • Accidents caused by farm machinery - For example, getting an arm or leg caught in machinery.
  • Falling from a height, such as from ladders or roofs.
  • Being hit or crushed by falling objects like hay bales
  • Accidents involving slurry pits, stores or silos.
  • Industrial deafness from exposure to high levels of noise or frequent noise from tools and machinery.
  • Accidents caused by inadequate training, improper use of dangerous machinery or the lack of proper safety equipment.
  • Exposure to asbestos which can be found in the walls and roofs of farm buildings.
  • Ill health from breathing in toxic fumes.
  • Allergies caused by exposure to contaminants.

Making a Farm Injury Claim

If you have been injured as a result of any of these types of accidents, or something similar, you should seek legal advice straight away. There can be time limits for accident claims, so you really need to get the ball rolling as quickly as possible. Seeking the advice of a specialist no win no fee injury solicitor quickly will also give you a better chance of winning your case because the accident will be "fresh" in the minds of any witnesses and you are more likely to be able to find medical records, accident logs and expense receipts pertaining to the incident. Your personal injury lawyer will be able to advise you on the likelihood of success, the amount of compensation you can hope to claim and what you need to provide to help support your case. Once you have provided your solicitor with everything they need, you can sit back and concentrate on getting better while they do the hard work - you don't want or need this stress on top of everything else. Look for a solicitor with an expertise in farm accidents or work accidents and who will work on a no win no fee basis, and don't leave it too long.
