Farming: is it the most dangerous job in Britain?

farming dangers

Tending to a farm in the countryside sounds like an idyllic lifestyle for some: driving tractors on open fields, or herding sheep in the summer breeze. Unfortunately, in practice, working in the agriculture sector is full of dangers that can cause serious injury and even death. Most of these events are accidental and highly preventable, but the demanding nature of farming means working with industrial machines and unpredictable animals that can cause serious injuries.

We therefore ask the question: is farming the most dangerous job in Britain? If it is, what can we do to improve the situation?

Car insurance premiums still going up despite the cost of claims falling?

There has been some mixed press about the effect that the personal injury reforms last year have had on the insurance industry. The legal reforms last year have resulted in accident victims now having to lose some of their compensation whilst the insurers pay a fraction of the fees that they used to pay.

So why are premiums still rising? Wasn’t all this reform designed to cut the cost to the motorist?

New law against 100% compensation – Explained!

Some lawyers are not advising people correctly…

Have you been told that you won’t get 100% compensation because of law changes from April 2013? Are you instead facing a massive 25% deduction from your payout because the solicitor you have spoken to says you can’t get 100% compensation anymore?

Well read on – because in reality, it may not be as bad for you as you might have thought…

Whiplash Claims, the “Compensation Culture” and Insurers Cashing In!

  • If there were less claims, there would be lower premiums

Prepare to be shocked! Read on for an insight in to how it really works!

Who are the best Injury Lawyers?

I could of course be bias and say that we are! But to be fair, I could back up exactly why we may well be the best injury lawyer for you.

In the good old days (which was before the massive legal reforms that took place in April 2013) it was all about the benefits of the service that we could offer for people – i.e. how we go the extra mile. But due to the legal reforms, most lawyers can no longer afford to offer people 100% compensation agreements. So for many, it’s about chasing the best offer, which is usually the lowest deduction.

Why won’t lawyers offer you 100%?

Which Injury Lawyer is Best?

Personally, I would like to lean you towards the idea that we are the best injury lawyers out there. We are THE Injury Lawyers – a firm of specialist personal injury compensation lawyers. We are a real law firm, and we only deal with injury claims – so we are the specialists in our field.

So if you are shopping around, here are a few reasons why you may want to make your claim with us! If you speak with other firms, make sure you see how they compare to our enviable high levels of service:

Real Specialist Lawyers

As I said earlier, we are a real law firm – not some claims management company or accident advice service that is going to palm you off on any old lawyer and charge you for it. We have been dealing with injury claims for years so we have developed a specialist and bespoke service that is tailored to your injury claim needs.

No Win No Fee Solicitors Reviews

There are thousands of law firms in the UK alone that deal with personal injury claims. There are probably hundreds of firms who specialise and deal only with compensation cases. At the same time, there are thousands of accident management companies and claims management companies who people often mistake for law firms who will sell your claim to a lawyer.

So with all those companies out there, who on Earth do you choose to represent you for your personal injury compensation claim?

First advice, make sure you go to a law firm direct. If you go to a claims company, you may end up with extra charges. You are better off, in my opinion, finding a law firm and speaking to them directly for advice and representation.

Churchill Insurers Appeal Against £5m Payout to 16 Year Old Hit By Car Because She “Wasn’t Wearing a High-Vis Jacket!’

As a firm of lawyers who deal only with claims for personal injury compensation, we actually specialise in serious injury claims with payouts that run in to millions of pounds. If there is one thing that is always a certainty in high value compensation claims, it’s that insurers will do ANYTHING to limit or stop a payout. Their interests of course are to protect their shareholders profits and keep costs down.

But you have to really question the lack of humanity when you hear a story like this one; bearing in mind that insurance is there to cover people for claims. According to sources from the Daily Mail, Churchill are going to appeal a decision finding their policy holder 100% at fault for an accident with a payout estimated to be in the millions. The problem though is the circumstances of the accident, and their argument for the appeal…

Churchill are saying that now brain damaged 16 year old Bethany Probert, who was 13 at the time of the accident when she was hit on a dark country road by a speeding motorist, should have been wearing a high visibility jacket. They are actually suggesting that a 13 year old should know to wear a high visibility jacket on the basis that she rides horses and therefore knows to wear one when out on a horse on the roads.
