If you work on a farm, you are exposed to many dangers that could cause an injury. It is the employer’s duty to ensure that you are not harmed while at work. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case and injuries happen as a result of negligence. If you have been injured in a farming accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.

Types of farming accidents
Working on a farm requires using heavy and dangerous machinery, such as combine harvesters, tractors and hay baling machines, as well as a lot of manual labour. We have handled cases for farm workers that have been injured in the following ways:
- Being struck by incorrectly stored hay bales
- Suffering an accident while using a combine harvester
- Not being provided with appropriate equipment to carry out a task
- Insufficient training on how to use farming machinery
- Defective machinery
Just like any other workplace, your employer is responsible for your safety and, if this has been breached, you could be entitled to compensation.
We are here to help
A farming injury can be incredibly serious, preventing you from returning to work for quite some time while you fully recover. Compensation can come in handy to cover the cost of any lost wages, so you can continue to pay the bills and support your family. As well as this, financial relief can go towards paying for unexpected expenses such as:
- Medical treatment
- Travel costs
- Home adaptations
