WHAT KINDS OF ACCIDENTS DO YOU CONSIDER FARM ACCIDENTS?
Farm accidents overwhelmingly involve farming machinery, such as tractors. Many farm accident claims involve a tractor overturning and injuring its operator or people nearby. However, farm accidents also include defective equipment, chemical and pesticide exposure, unsafe areas of the farm’s property, and other hazards on-site. Farming is considered to be the most dangerous industry job in the country.
WHAT MAKES FARM ACCIDENTS DIFFERENT THAN OTHER PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENTS?
Beyond the obvious differences, farm accidents are the result of heavy machinery and tractors not used in most people’s lives. They have the potential for defects different than other vehicles that can result in injury or death. Also, farm employees are exposed to different types of chemicals and animals on a daily basis that people who live in suburbs or cities may never be exposed to. Getting compensation to help you pay your medical bills or regain lost income requires an attorney who specializes in farm accidents?
WHAT KINDS OF INJURIES RESULT FROM FARM ACCIDENTS?
Catastrophic accidents occur often on farms. Because of the type of heavy equipment or farm machinery used, injuries such as amputation, crushing injuries, and head injuries occur. Other types of accidents may cause brain and spinal injuries, disfiguration, asphyxiation, and more.
Farm employees have high levels of asthma or other respiratory illnesses, zoonotic (animal to human transfer) infections, and loss of hearing than those in most other industries.
These injuries can have life-altering consequences or cause death.
