Farm Equipment Injuries - Greenville Farm Equipment Attorney

When it comes to the idea of fantasy versus reality, there are few things as different as the thought of being on a farm. Most people who have never been on a farm seem to think that it's mostly playing with large animals all day and maybe getting a little dirty. Those of us who have spent any amount of time on a farm, however, know that this isn't what happens. It is a lot of work that often leaves you sun burned, sweaty, and sore. Even with machines that make your job easier, it is often exhausting work. Sometimes, these machines can be more dangerous than spending the time to do it by hand would be.

If you speak to people who work on farms, you'll probably hear a story or two about someone who was injured by a piece of machinery. It's not uncommon to hear of someone losing a finger or breaking a couple of bones or dislocating something while working on the machines. These types of injuries almost seem like a part of life if you work on a farm for any extended amount of time. Although we have better safety measures than we used to, these types of accidents do still happen far too often.

When you are working with anything that will help turn over large amounts of soil or handle large animals, it isn't surprising to think that these machines can be dangerous.

Farm Accidents

Farm Accidents

When you look at some of the machinery that is used on farms, it can be amazing to realize that there aren't more accidents. Many of these machines are large, heavy, and often have sharp blades or edges that are used to help either turn over large amounts of earth or harvest crops from the fields. They are also normally slow to respond to commands or move, so when accidents do occur they can be made worse by the sheer momentum of movement that this equipment needs. This is true regardless of whether you are dealing with the machines directly or trying to drive by them.

For some people, having to share the road with a large piece of farm equipment is a common occurrence. They know how long it can take to get the piece back off the road safely, and understand how wide a berth they need to give it. Even people who are experienced with this, though, can be injured if they miscalculate or become impatient to pass the machine. It can take quite a while to move a piece of farm equipment and if you're in a rush, it can seem like you'll never get by. Trying to hurry up the process, however, will more often than not get someone hurt.

When you are injured by a piece of farm equipment, there are a lot of questions that you will probably have. While a great deal of them will have to do with your recovery, many will also have to do with the legal ramifications of the incident. Not only will you have to figure out how to deal with your insurance companies, you may also have to worry about the insurance company that is used by the farm that owns the equipment that injured you. That is where you will need some help.
