The unnamed 42-year-old lost his right eye, sustained damage to his liver and stomach and broke his jaw when the quad bike he was riding at Lodge Hill Farm in Derbyshire in June 2010 overturned.
At the time of this incident, the professional was travelling along a track rounding up sheep for agricultural business JD and RL Spalton when the vehicle unexpectedly faltered.
As a result of the seriousness of his injuries, the worker had to spend more than two weeks in intensive care and has only been able to return to his job in a capacity with lighter duties.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) subsequently found that the vehicle was in poorly-maintained condition, meaning he may be eligible for damages.
Berian Price of the HSE observed: "This man's injuries could easily have been prevented."
