Farming Accident Compensation Claims

Whilst rigorous safety procedures should always be in place on farms and in agricultural environments, sometimes farm accidents involving animals or machinery can happen.

If something does go wrong, we are on hand to look after you and help you make a full recovery with the help of our expert legal advice and compensation. Some examples of farm injury and illness can be caused by:

  • dangerous animals
  • tools and heavy duty machinery
  • farm accidents involving vehicles
  • falling from a height or being hit by falling objects
  • accidents involving slurry pits, stores or silos
  • exposure to hazardous substances such as chemicals and pesticides
  • exposure to high levels of noise or frequent noise from tools and machinery causing industrial deafness
  • exposure to asbestos, sometimes found in the walls and roofs of some older farm buildings
  • dust exposure causing “Farmer’s Lung”
  • inhaling toxic fumes
  • allergies caused by exposure to contaminants
  • accidents caused by inadequate training, improper use of dangerous machinery or the lack of proper safety equipment
