Trucks, Tractors And Farm Equipment
Farm trucks are just as likely to be in an accident as any vehicle on the road. In fact, because farm trucks spend most of their time on rural roads, their drivers can be at even greater risk for serious accidents. Anyone who drivers a tractor or other large piece of farm equipment on a road is also in danger of being hit by another vehicle.
Tractors can cause injury or death regardless of where they are operated. It is not uncommon for people to fall or get caught on the tractor and subsequently be run over.
All farm equipment can be dangerous due to improper use, lack of training, defective parts, or wear and tear. A farm worker may use everything from power tools to large equipment, including balers, combines, grain augers, chain saws, posthole diggers, plows, harrows and cultivators. Equipment accidents can cause crushed or broken bones, amputations, lacerations and disfigurement.
If a farm owner violates OSHA regulations or other safety procedures, you may be able to recover compensation. The manufacturer of defective equipment may also be liable for your losses. Our attorneys will investigate the cause of the accident to determine liability. We build strong cases to hold the negligent party accountable.
