Dumfries is the largest town in Dumfries and Galloway, with Stranraer and Annan being the two other main towns in the region.

Around 70% of the land in Dumfries and Galloway is given over to agriculture, so it's not surprising that farming and forestry are two major economic contributors in the region. There is also a range of light industry in the area and tourism also makes another significant contribution to the region's economy.

As a result, in Dumfries and Galloway, we see a wide-range of workplace accident claims, from farming accidents and forestry accidents to personal injuries suffered in shops and offices.

Serious workplace accident claims in Dumfries

Sadly, alongside construction and manufacturing, the forestry and farming industries are two of the most dangerous sectors for workers.

Workplace accident risks in these industries include:

  • working with chainsaws and moving machinery
  • being struck by falling objects, such as tree branches and bales of hay
  • working at height
  • working with animals and livestock
  • working around farm and forestry vehicles, including forklift trucks, tractors and balers, etc.
  • working close to overhead power lines

This list is by no means exhaustive and there are numerous other risks which may cause a serious workplace accident to occur.

The injuries which may occur include:

  • head injury
  • spinal injury
  • amputation injuries
  • chemical burns
  • asphyxiation and drowning
  • crush injuries

Sadly, some serious workplace accidents will cause catastrophic, life-changing injuries and, tragically, fatal injuries.
