Farm Accidents

A

griculture is one of the most dangerous industries in the United States. Each year numerous Nebraskans die as a result of farm accidents. Of all such accidents, the tractor has accounted for the most deaths and injuries.

Many Nebraska farmers have suffered injuries over the years, yet have sought no compensation for those injuries. The realization that farmers are often not responsible for these injuries and should not bear the financial burden resulting from farm accidents, however, has brought about changes in both the insurance industry and legal system.

Farm injuries frequently involve power take-offs, tractor roll-overs, chemical burns, slow-moving vehicle injuries, or grain handling equipment. It is well-known that Nebraska farmers operate and maintain heavy duty equipment and machinery, which by its nature can be extremely hazardous. Nebraska farmers also use many hazardous chemicals.

Parker, Grossart, Bahensky, Beucke, Bowman & Symington L.L.P. is located in central Nebraska, the middle of Midwest farming communities. Our firm is well aware of the difficulties our farmers face and the vital role they play in the economy. Farm accidents happen, but when they do, we are available for consultation to determine if a compensable claim exists, to pursue possible sources of recovery and to maximize recovery for serious accidents that can limit or eliminate a farmer's potential to earn income.
