Technology is a farmer’s best friend, but even with fast, efficient machinery, technology can also be a farmer’s biggest foe.

When representing your case, we examine and research every aspect of the accident. We aggressively hold all liable parties accountable and work hard to recover full monetary compensation for your accident injuries.
Types of farm machinery
On farms in the United States, tractor accidents account for the highest number of fatalities, and tractor overturns make up 44 percent of those tractor fatalities. Because a variety of dangerous machinery is used, the accident risk increases for farm workers. The risk for injury becomes even greater if a worker operates machinery that is defective and suddenly malfunctions. Injuries resulting from defective machinery can be catastrophic ranging from limb amputation to crushing injuries to death. Below are common types of farm machinery that often malfunction and cause accidents:
- Cattle and livestock equipment
- Conveyor belts
- Trucks and farm vehicles

Liability in farm machinery accidents
When determining liability, we carefully examine and review all evidence involved in your case. Before we determine if a third party, such as a manufacturing company is at fault, these are common liability issues we consider:
- Were safety devices such as shields and guards taken off the machinery?
- Did the power take off and safety shut off suddenly malfunction?
- Was the farm machinery safely properly maintained and serviced?
- Did the manufacturer fail to warn machine operators about possible hazards?
- Did the employer train their workers on how to safely use the machinery?
