About Farm Machinery Accidents
A farm worker or a farmer owner is not necessarily covered by workers’ compensation laws in California. In the case of the farmer, not only is there physical damage requiring significant medical help, there is the potential loss of income from crop loss brought about by the farmer’s incapacitation.
The machines used in agriculture are large and powerful, and typically have dangerous moving parts, and victims can suffer severe injuries or even fatality in the most tragic cases. Survivors often face long roads to recovery, and possibly life-altering disabilities resulting from such injuries as:
- Broken or crushed bones
- Brain damage
- Spinal cord injury
When victims are injured by farm machinery or by farming products, such as toxic harm from agricultural chemicals, they may not be able to properly recover or rebuild their lives without the relief that comes from a proper and fair liability claim against the person or company causing the accident. Our firm is experienced and has been successful in liability claims involving farm machinery and other agricultural accidents, and we are prepared to provide you with the aggressive advocacy you deserve.
Have you been harmed by farm machinery?
There can be a variety of companies who might have been at fault in your agricultural accident. Some possibilities are:
- Machinery failure as a result of manufacturer negligence
- The farmer or organization operating the farm and their negligence in training
- An independent contractor such a chemical supplier
- Machinery designed without adequate guards or safety guards so that hands and limbs can come into contact with moving machine parts
