North Dakota Farm Work Still Considered Among the Most Dangerous Jobs in the Country
Farm work has always had its dangers. It is a tough job that most people cannot handle. New technologies have not done much to make working on a job much safer. Evidence shows that it may actually be more dangerous to work on a farm in North Dakota than ever before. The problem is that injuries have gotten more severe throughout the last several years and technology advances.
Injuries are more devastating for victims than they have ever been for farm workers in the past. Equipment has gotten bigger and more powerful. It has also gotten more automated, but the safeguards are not foolproof. North Dakota farming personal injury attorneys have found that there are slightly fewer cases but the injuries are more traumatic. Injuries involving permanent disability and wrongful deaths are more common than they have been in the past.
Victims and their families are left with tough decisions to make after they lose a breadwinner. Farmers often do not have enough insurance coverage to pay for the devastation that has been done to the farmworker. Experienced North Dakota farm accident attorneys file many of these lawsuits against the equipment manufacturers that caused the injuries. Products liability lawsuits are often based on the duty manufacturers have to protect their end users from serious injuries.
The loss of livelihood is devastating for farmworkers and their families that count on them. There are more and more families having their financial security threatened every day by injuries from these dangerous jobs. As equipment continues to get more automated, bigger and powerful, these injury rates are only expected to continuously worsen.
