According to Safe Work Australia, farming and agriculture have the highest rate of workers’ compensation claims of any industry in the nation. From the potential hazard of a tractor to the unpredictability of livestock, farm workers encounter a myriad of risks every day. If you’ve been involved in an accident on or around a farm, our experts in personal injury law are here to help, read on for examples of farm-related accidents and their potential compensation.

Accidents on and off the Farm

Whether it’s a serene morning disrupted by a sudden mishap with a harvester, or a quiet country drive turning perilous with an unexpected cow causing an accident on the road; the spectrum of potential accidents around farming is broad – machinery mishaps, chemical exposures, or even animal confrontations. Each incident brings its own set of challenges and necessitates distinct legal considerations and having a legal team experienced in all areas of workplace personal injury like the experts at Carbone Lawyers can be the difference between an unsuccessful or successful farm injury claim.

Different Types of Farm Injury Claims

The type of claim for a given injury will largely depend on what the injured party was doing at the farm when the accident took place. For full-time, part-time, or even in some instances contractors involved who suffer an injury from their work, their employer must have WorkCover insurance for them. This covers things like weekly or lump sum (in serious cases) payment of compensation for lost wages, ambulance and other transportation costs, medical and rehabilitation costs, and necessary modifications to your home or vehicle to accommodate the injury. Typical injuries and/or accidents on a farm that a WorkCover claim might be suitable for include but aren’t limited to:

  • Falls from height
  • Falling objects causing injury
  • Inhaling or exposure to dangerous chemicals and/or dust
  • Injuries and illnesses from high noise levels
  • Dangerous livestock

 

Other types of claims that may be necessary in the event of an accident include common law claims against the owner of the farm or another party in the event that their negligence causes you to incur damages or even Transport Accident Commission (TAC) claims if registered vehicles are involved in an accident.
