In the Midwest, farming is a family tradition and a source of pride for many residents. For generations, farmers have worked hard to provide for their families and communities. However, farms can be dangerous places. Too often, the livelihood of farmers is jeopardized by an agricultural accident. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) ranks agriculture among the most hazardous industries.
Farm accidents are caused in a variety of ways.
Many agricultural accidents can cause severe and disabling injuries. Our personal injury attorneys work with farm accident victims involved in various types of incidents, including the following:
- Accidents involving farm machinery (balers, augers, pickers, choppers, etc.)
- Silo and grain dryer accidents
- Power takeoff injuries
- Road accidents (wagons, tractors, farm trucks)
- Bulls or other cattle and livestock
- Hazardous materials
