Farm Injury Claims

Farm work is often physically demanding, dangerous work. More than 12,000 workers in the agriculture, forestry and fishing industries are injured at work every year, with 20 losing their life. 

Even though farm workers and other employees in the agricultural sector operate in an often-hazardous environment, they still have the same health and safety protection in the workplace as any other worker.

The law expects employers in the agricultural sector to take all reasonable steps to make sure accidents don’t happen, by providing the right training, equipment and conditions.

If your employer did not provide a safe working environment and you have been injured, Thompsons Solicitors has a team of lawyers who specialise in winning your type of claim.

I had no idea who to turn to, but then my union rep helped tremendously. He introduced me to Thompsons so I could take advantage of the free legal help scheme.
