Have you been injured in a farming accident?

A recent finding by the National Farm Survey has alarmingly confirmed that over the last ten years farm accidents have risen by 31%. The highest rate of accidents was found to be in dairy farms (18%). The survey further shows that 42% of these accidents involved livestock and 25% involved farm vehicles or machinery.

Unfortunately it has become evident that farm accidents are an all too common occurrence in Ireland and they often result in very serious injuries, often the loss of limbs, spinal injuries, broken bones and fatalities. Compared to other sectors, the agricultural sector has the highest rate of non-fatal injuries in Ireland, which continues to fluctuate.

Common types of farming accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Dangerous farm machinery
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Tractors
  • Forklifts
  • Injuries caused by animals / livestock
  • Falling from a height

Falling from a height amounts to almost 20% of fatalities in the agricultural industry. These falls are linked to:

  • Building design
  • Fragile roof sheeting
  • Stacking bales at a height
  • Working on rooftops

If you have been involved in an accident on a farm, the first and most important thing you should do is seek medical attention. You should ensure to report the accident to your employer as soon as is practicable and make sure that an accident report form is completed.

Do I have a Case?

Often, valid claims are never brought because an injured party feels the accident was his own fault, whereas the primary cause of the accident may well rest with some other party. It is therefore always advisable to consult a solicitor concerning any injury resulting from an accident. Before we make a recommendation, we will discuss your case with you in detail.
