What our clients say
Farm accident claims & compensation in Northern Ireland
You have the legal right to a safe working environment, even in the inherently risky field of agriculture. Employers and farm owners are obliged to ensure you are properly trained and provided with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE).
They must also undertake risk assessments and manage their operations in such a way that minimises risk to their employees. Unfortunately, accidents still happen, and when they do, you need the right team by your side.

Solicitors specialising in farm accident & injury claims
Our team of dedicated experts has obtained compensation for clients who have suffered a range of injuries, from minor cuts and bruises to serious, life-changing injuries such as amputations or a spinal injury.
Injuries sustained on farms are often caused by:

We have also dealt with cases relating to diseases specific to agricultural work, such as respiratory illnesses caused by exposure to chemicals or other harmful substances.
You have a right to be safe from injury whilst working in the agricultural sector
Farm workers might worry that pursuing compensation will affect their relationship with their employer or even result in job loss. However, it’s important to remember that employers are required to have insurance policies in place precisely for these situations, to ensure employees are fairly compensated in the event of an accident on the farm.
