What farm accidents can I claim compensation for?

Due to the seasonality of the industry, many farms use temporary staff, which can lead to a lower level of training and a lapse in health and safety. Many types of farm accidents can cause injury to workers in the agriculture industry, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Accidents involving farm machinery, such as tractors, combine harvesters or forklift trucks.
  • Accidents with animals and dangerous livestock.
  • Injury caused by falling from a height on a farm or by falling objects on agricultural sites.
  • Farm vehicle accidents, e.g., collisions.
  • Accidents involving heavy farm equipment, such as slurry storage units and silos.
  • Fatal farm accidents.
  • Injury caused by hazardous substances.
  • Accidents caused by a lack of safety equipment or by inadequate training.
  • Serious head injuries.
  • Serious spinal injury caused by farm accidents.
  • Slips and trips on farms and farmland.

It is not only employees who may sustain injury and are entitled to make a claim. Visitors to a farm who sustain injuries or those who live or travel along the perimeter of a farm may also be able to make a claim if they are injured in an accident that was not their fault.
