Farm Accidents And Accidents Occurring In Rural Communities
Farming is a labor-intensive job that involves numerous high-risk activities. The use of heavy farm machinery, working around large animals, handling dangerous chemicals and various other daily realities of working on a farm may put you and others at risk for being injured in an accident.

We Will Handle All Aspects Of Your Case So You Can Focus On Getting Better
As your representatives, we will perform a full investigation of the circumstances to find out what contributed to your accident. Whether you are the farm owner, an employee, a contractor, a seasonal worker or an innocent bystander who just happened to get hurt, we can help you pursue the compensation you require to cover your expenses.
Injury costs for farm accidents can quickly add up. Luckily, if you are a worker on the farm, your employer is obligated to provide you with workers’ compensation coverage if you were injured on the job. This should cover lost wages and any medical expenses incurred because of your injury. Additionally, our attorneys will work with you to obtain compensation for property damage and pain and suffering.
