The expert Personal Injury Lawyers at Forbes Solicitors are here to help should you be injured in an agriculture or farm accident. Contact us today to get your No Win No Fee compensation claim started.

The farming and agriculture industries are some of the most dangerous to work in, claiming almost one life per week and causing severe life changing injuries and illnesses to workers on a daily basis.

Accidents can happen due to a number of factors as the nature of farming and agriculture work usually requires the use of heavy machinery, moving vehicles and dangerous chemicals. Workers involved in these accidents can be left with devastating injuries rendering them unable to work for extended periods of time. In addition injuries caused by cattle, silos and pits are a regular threat to farmworkers, with many injuries resulting in fatalities.

Types of Farm and Agriculture Accident Claims

Forbes Solicitors deal with many agriculture and farming compensation claims regarding the following:

  • slip, trip or fall accidents
  • farm workers being struck by moving, flying or falling objects
  • falls from height;
  • Heavy machinery accidents such as tractors/harvesters/forklift trucks/diggers and 4x4 vehicles
  • Animal injuries
  • Hazardous chemical and substances injuries and illnesses
  • Vibration illnesses
  • Illnesses caused by exposure to dust
  • Silos, Slurry Stores or Pits accidents
  • Back injuries
  • Zoonoses (diseases passed from animals to humans)
  • Farm accident fatalities

If you work in the agriculture or farming industry and you have been injured whilst on the job or as a result of working in this industry, you deserve compensation. In addition if your loved one has been fatally injured whilst working on a farm or in the agriculture industry - you have a right to seek independent legal advice and a right to claim compensation.
