Falling from Height Compensation Amounts
As with any workplace, if you are required to work at height you need to be equipped with the right equipment and training. If you haven’t got the right equipment but are still required to work at height on a farm, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Falling from height injuries can still be extremely dangerous and include permanent head injuries or back injuries. In some cases, falling from height can even lead to wrongful death compensation claims.

Farm Chemical Injuries Compensation Amounts
Farms often have access to large quantities of chemicals, including pesticides and weedicides. Most of these chemicals are harmless in small amounts, but if you are required to work around them without the right safety equipment, they can lead to long-term health conditions, including lung conditions. In the short-term, spillages or accidents can lead to serious burns which can often cause long-term scarring.
