Due to the vast amount of farmland in New Hampshire and Vermont, there are many families that operate heavy plowing, tilling, and planting equipment. The Vermont and New Hampshire tractor lawyers at Cullenberg & Tensen, P.L.L.C. represent tractor and farm accident victims who have suffered harm due to defective or unsafe tractors.
Tractor Accidents Mean Severe Injuries
Tractors are designed to cover expansive areas of farmland and to save farmers time in their efforts. They are usually very large, heavy, and contain many moving parts. Tractors with sharp blades or other cutting devices can prove to be very dangerous, even in experienced hands.
Tractor accidents often result in serious physical harm, with injuries that can become fatal or lead to permanent disability. Unfortunately, while many of today’s newer tractor models are built with safety devices and rollover protection, they do not always deliver on their promises.
Tractor accidents can result in a variety of physical injures, including:
