Accidents In The Agricultural Industry

Clarkson Hirst Solicitors Limited

We fully recognise from our experience of handling client’s cases how dangerous working in the agricultural industry can be. According to the Health and Safety Executive on average between 40 and 50 workers are killed on British farms every year in accidents. That is a higher death rate than construction or manufacturing.

If you happen to be injured on a farm or agricultural industry such as working in an abattoir we have the necessary experience to handle your claim. Our firm’s Senior Director, Matthew Winder is a Senior Litigator Member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. His accreditation requires him to receive training on an annual basis to keep up to date with the changes in the law. His particular interest is in the field of Employers Liability. In the agricultural sector claims generally arise through operating machinery, transporting livestock and agricultural produce and falls.

These accidents in the agricultural industry can often be preventable and your employer is insured or at least should be insured to cover such claims. If you would like to take some confidential advice without obligations then don’t hesitate to contact our Mr Winder by email at or by telephone on 01524 387503.
