Have you been involved in an agricultural accident? Were you, or do you continue to be affected physically, financially or emotionally? If you have been injured and it wasn't your fault, contact us and realise the compensation you deserve.
Agricultural Accident Claims:The Law is on Your Side
Farms are rife with potential dangers and if precautions aren't taken, and safeguarding practices implemented, accidents can easily occur. Having contact with machinery and animals on a daily basis increases your chances of sustaining an injury, or contracting a disease, which is why it is essential your employer takes all the right steps to ensure your working environment is a safe one. Unfortunately, accidents that are not your fault can happen, and in these cases you have the right to submit a claim for compensation.
Common Agricultural Accident Claims
An astounding amount of accidents can take place on a farm and some of the most common claims are due to:
- Injuries caused by machinery
- Accidents in vehicles
- Injuries sustained from animals
Farming accidents can have a devastating impact on your ability to work and your overall physical and mental wellbeing. There are many circumstances in which you deserve to claim for compensation due to loss of earnings, payment of medical bills and emotional distress.
What Kind of Medical Care Can Compensation Cover?
Treatment for your injury could include surgery, physiotherapy, medication, or even long-term care over an undefined amount of time. Alongside physical care and rehabilitation, you may require assistance coming to terms with your injuries, especially if they are severe. This could involve the need for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, counselling, or other forms of emotional and mental health support.
There are several laws and regulations that protect farm workers and our legal experts are specialists in this field. For such specific claims you will need a team that has the experience and knowledge to ensure a successful claim: Clearwater Solicitors is that team.
