Different types of Farm Injury
There are many types of farm accidents that you may be able to claim for, but whatever your accident or injury, as long as you were injured (or a close relative was affected) and it was someone else’s fault, you should be eligible for claiming personal injury compensation. Here are some examples of farm accidents:-
- Dangerous animals – Working with any type of animal can be hazardous but farm animals can be even more so because of their size.
- Ill health caused by using vibrating tools – Conditions like Vibration White Finger can be caused by working with vibrating power tools without adequate protection or rest breaks.
- Ill health caused by exposure to dust or hazardous substances like chemicals and pesticides. Dust exposure can lead to “Farmer’s Lung”.
- Accidents caused by farm vehicles like forklifts, tractors and combine harvesters.
- Accidents caused by farm machinery – For example, getting an arm or leg caught in machinery.
- Falling from a height, such as from ladders or roofs.
- Being hit or crushed by falling objects like hay bales
- Accidents involving slurry pits, stores or silos.
- Industrial deafness from exposure to high levels of noise or frequent noise from tools and machinery.
- Accidents caused by inadequate training, improper use of dangerous machinery or the lack of proper safety equipment.
- Exposure to asbestos which can be found in the walls and roofs of farm buildings.
- Ill health from breathing in toxic fumes.
- Allergies caused by exposure to contaminants.
