Common Farming Accidents
While many farming injuries are simply the result of an unfortunate accident, others may be due to the negligence or oversight of another.
The following are some of the most common accidents on a farm:
- Tractor Overturns: Many farmers are killed or injured each year due to a tractor rollover.
- Farm Structure Falls: Many farmers are injured or killed due to falls from equipment, ladders, grain bins, and more. Others are injured by falling objects.
- Entanglement in Farm Machines: Machines can result in dangerous injuries if a farmer’s limb or clothing becomes entangled in the parts.
- Suffocation-Related Accidents: A farmer may pass out and suffocate from the lack of oxygen in a grain bin or enclosed area with silo gas or manure gas.
In some cases, these injuries may warrant a claim and pursuit of compensation. An employer or a manufacturer could be at fault for your injuries or the death of a loved one.
