Broken bones sustained during an accident at work could result in an agricultural employee pursuing a personal injury compensation claim.
Algis Jevsejevas was operating as an agency worker for farming firm CW Dobbs and Sons in Lincolnshire in October of last year when a forklift truck ran into him and fractured his left leg.
An investigation into the incident by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) revealed that the 45-year-old man was walking across the floor of premises owned by the company as part of his duties when the vehicle reversed and struck him.
It was decided by inspectors that his employers had not ensured the workspace was safe for both pedestrians and vehicles to operate in at the same time.
Neil Ward of the HSE commented: "This incident need not have happened."
Recently, Peter Echie had to have two toes amputated after an accident at work at farming firm R Todd and Company in Fife.
