Protecting Your Rights After A Farm Accident
If you have suffered an injury in a farm accident, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible. Our lawyers will take immediate steps to collect and preserve evidence of accident scene to determine how it happened.
If your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have the right to obtain full compensation for everything you have lost. Examples of negligence in farm accidents include:
- Unsafe conditions on the property
- Fires or explosions caused by grain dust, improperly stored chemicals or electrical code violations
- Unsafe or defective farming equipment
- Missing safety guards on equipment
- Motor vehicle accidents
