Farm Injuries

Located in Memphis, TN

Across the United States and especially in the Mid-South, we boast beautiful farmland over hundreds of thousands of acres. Hidden from the picturesque farmlands are massive business operations that require hard labor, heavy machinery and technical precision to sow crops and deliver them to the marketplace.

Like any other workplace that still places prevalence in manual labor, serious injuries occur.

We have seen many farm injuries in the Mid-South over the years, the most common being the following:

Tractor Overturns

These are some of the most common accidents on a farm. Heavy tractors maneuvering on all types of terrain can easily cause serious bodily injuries to the operator if the tractor is not equipped with proper Roll-Over Protective Structure.  

Animal-related Injuries

These injuries are also common farm-related injuries. Workers in charge of tagging and caring for livestock take on great risk when carrying out his or her duties.

Machinery Malfunction

Malfunctions happen and are common for equipment that is not properly cared for and inspected prior to use each day.

Improper or Insufficient Safety Warnings

If warnings are not communicated properly, employees or users may equipment be uninformed on the safe, proper usage of machinery, resulting in unnecessary injury.

Toxic and Chemical Injuries

You must take proper caution when handling and working around such products.  

 

The agricultural industry sits as the backbone to American commerce. Unfortunately, its sustainability leads certain inherent risks. Farming has always been tough labor, requiring many hours of manual work in conjunction with heavy machinery. Still, injuries do occur – sometimes serious injuries resulting in permanent impairment or death.

 

Liability for the injuries is often a difficult question requiring the assistance of an experienced farming injury attorney familiar with personal injury and workers compensation matters. Depending on the facts of each case, the farm owner, machine manufacturer or any number of related parties could be liable.
