Crushing accidents on farms
Due to the nature of the work involved on many Lincolnshire farms, large farm vehicles and heavy machinery are in regular use and despite increased health and safety measures, accidents are unfortunately a common occurrence.
In fact, statistics gathered by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) show that the farming and agricultural sector has the highest rate of fatal injuries per 100,000 workers of any major industrial sector. The fatality rate is 18 times higher than the average fatality rate within the UK industry.
Types of farm accidents
The senior solicitors at Nigel Askew Solicitors have over 20 years of experience in successfully winning compensation for clients who have been seriously injured at work. During this time, we have recovered millions of pounds of compensation for our clients.
Some of the most common accidents and injuries on farms include:
- Crushing injuries due to gates, machinery and falling objects
- Serious crushing injuries due to overturning farm vehicles including tractors, tippers, diggers
- Injuries to arms, legs and hands due to being struck and crushed by moving farm machinery
- Accidents involving silos, slurry stores or pits
If you have been injured in a crushing accident on a farm in Lincolnshire that is not listed above, do not worry, you still may have a claim. Contact us now for specialist advice by calling 01507 609027.
How much compensation can I claim for?
The amount of compensation you can expect to claim depends on a number of different factors, including the severity of your crushing injuries and your recovery, your financial losses and long-term work prospects.
All successful claims for personal injury may include compensation for the following:
- Compensation for your pain and suffering caused by your injuries
- Compensation for any lost earnings, past, present and future as a result of the accident
Depending on the severity of your injuries and your current and future financial losses, very serious crushing injuries can be valued at several hundred thousand pounds and in cases where someone has suffered life changing injuries, they can be valued in the millions.
For more information about how much you may be able to claim, read our ‘Claims Calculator’ page here.

How much does it cost to start my claim?
We do not charge our clients any fees to get a new claim up and running.
We use “Conditional Fee Agreements” to fund all of our claims. These agreements are also commonly referred to as “No Win No Fee Agreements” or “CFA’s”.
The nature of these agreements means that law firms take all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a % of the client’s compensation award at the end of a successful claim.
You may be concerned about making a claim against your employer but do not worry, if you have been seriously injured due to a non-fault accident, you are within your rights to start a claim.
