What sort of farming injuries can I claim for?
Everyone knows that tractor accidents happen regularly on farms. But the fact is, farming is Britain's most dangerous industry, largely because of hazards like these:
- Tractors: rolling on slopes
- Quad bikes: flipping over
- Dipping areas: where you can fall in
- Dangerous chemicals: that can leak
- Grain silos: where you can suffocate
- Unpredictable animals: that can stampede or kick out such as cows
- Barns and haystacks: leading to serious falls
In such a dangerous place, it's no wonder that so many people are hurt on farms every year. So if you have been hurt on a farm in the last three years and it wasn't your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
What can I claim for?
If you have been injured while working on a farm and it was someone else's fault, you might be able to claim compensation for things like:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of earnings
- Loss of future earnings
- Medical expenses
All of these expenses and losses can really add up. So if you have been hurt in a farming accident that wasn't your fault in the last three years, you owe it to yourself to find out if you can claim the compensation you deserve.
Who's to blame for my farming injury?
Farm owners are responsible for the safety of everyone that works there, or even comes to visit. With so many hazards on the farm, they need to have safety rules in place to protect you from harm. Where this hasn't happened, and you have been hurt as a result, they are at fault for your injury.
