Farm Accidents

Farm­ing has long been one of the most haz­ardous occu­pa­tions in the United States. More than 120,000 injuries, includ­ing acci­den­tal ampu­ta­tions, occur on farms every year, with more than 1,300 result­ing in death. Sta­tis­tics show that more than half of these fatal­i­ties are the result of trac­tor acci­dents. These acci­dents are tragic and it is impor­tant for vic­tims to under­stand that they do have legal rights and may be enti­tled to com­pen­sa­tion for their injuries.

Com­mon Causes of Farm Accidents

Like other types of acci­dents, farm acci­dents can hap­pen for many dif­fer­ent rea­sons.  Some of the most com­mon include:

  • Trac­tor accidents
  • Unsafe con­di­tion of farm equipment
  • Equip­ment malfunction
  • Poor weather and/or work­ing conditions
  • Lack of proper equipment
  • Lack of instruc­tion or safety training

What­ever the cause, the con­se­quences of farm acci­dents are fre­quently tragic. Vic­tims of farm acci­dents often suf­fer seri­ous psy­cho­log­i­cal and finan­cial trauma in addi­tion to the phys­i­cal trauma caused by their injuries.
