Man injured in Flagg farm accident
He was taken to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire by helicopter after a grain hopper, which weighs approximately three tonnes, ran over him as he helped with farm-work.
Apparently the injuries suffered were mainly to his chest, and paramedics were required to perform an immediate surgical procedure upon arrival in order to improve the man’s breathing.
Currently he is reported to be in a critical condition.
Police are not treating the farm accident as suspicious, but have entered a joint investigation with the Health and Safety Executive to determine the cause of the incident.
If the owners or managers of the farm are found to be liable for the man’s injuries, then he might choose to contact a farm accident compensation solicitor to make a claim for remuneration.
Anyone who suffers non-fault injuries in a work accident, or as a member of the public, could be entitled to claim for their pain and suffering – and should contact the experts at George Ide to see if they have a valid and viable case.News
