Compensation Claims for Tractor Crashes
Compensation claims for tractor crashes can be made when a road traffic accident was caused by the negligence of a tractor driver or when a tractor driver has sustained an injury in a tractor crash due to the negligence of another party. Compensation claims for tractor crashes can include material damage to the vehicle and personal injury compensation for injuries sustained in the accident, and because of the potential for substantial compensation for tractor crashes, if you have been involved in a road traffic accident with a tractor, or have had a crash as a tractor driver which was not entirely your fault, you should seek the advice of a personal injury solicitor at the earliest possible opportunity.
Compensation Claims for Tractor Crashes and Farm Employees
Compensation claims for tractor crashes can be claimed by tractor drivers for any injuries sustained when inattentive drivers have caused a rear end crash. Although the tractor offers a considerable degree of protection to its driver, whiplash injuries are still possible in rear end collisions. On farmland, poor weather conditions and uneven ground can cause a tractor to overturn. When under pressure to get work completed quickly before the weather turns, employers may cut corners, and with the financial pressures facing farmers today, the standards of health and safety on Irish farms may be allowed to slip. When the negligence of employers or co-workers is responsible for a tractor crash on private property, compensation claims for tractor crashes can be made against an employer’s liability insurance policy.
Eligibility to Make Compensation Claims for Tractor Crashes
In order for compensation claims for tractor crashes to be made, an accident victim must have sustained a personal injury in a tractor accident, the accident must have been caused by the negligence of at least one third party and there must have been a duty of care owed to the victim which was breached.
When there has been a failure in a duty of care to an employee’s safety which has led to a tractor accident with other farm vehicles it is classed as employer liability. In a road traffic accident, a driver who is responsible for an accident which could have been avoided will have breached a duty of care to other road users. Compensation for tractor crashes can be claimed by drivers of vehicles involved in a collision with a tractor which was caused by the tractor driver’s negligence.
Before any compensation claims for tractor crashes are made, it is best to speak to a personal injury solicitor for advice on making claims for compensation in Ireland.
Compensation Claims for Tractor Crashes and Contributory Negligence
Road traffic accidents frequently involve more than one vehicle, which is often the case with accidents involving slow moving farm vehicles. Claims for tractor crashes compensation which involve multiple cases of negligence will see each negligent third part liable for a proportion of any compensation award. When the victim is required to send multiple compensation claims for tractor crashes, it is usually done with an O’Byrne letter. Each negligent third party will then be informed of the claim simultaneously.
Compensation claims for tractor crashes may also involve a degree of negligence on the part of the victim. Although compensation claims for tractor crashes cannot be made if the victim was primarily responsible for the crash, should the claimant have contributed to the seriousness of their injuries or only played a small part in a crash occurring, compensation claims for tractor crashes would still be possible, although the compensation amounts received would be reduced to take any personal negligence into account.
