Farm Accidents

Have you or someone you know been injured in a farming accident? Farming can be very dangerous.  Farming often involves the use of large and dangerous equipment, application of chemicals, livestock, and long hours.   You may have been injured through no fault of your own.  There are many instances where farm owners do not take safety precautions or fail to provide their workers with the necessary safety equipment. Equipment defects and malfunction can also result in injuries to farm workers.  Accidents can also occur when a farm worker is asked to perform a task that has an unreasonable amount of risk which results in an accident.  You may have been injured when you were an employee, independent contractor, or day laborer.  Workers’ compensation may be one option to consider when an employee is injured in a farm accident.  All possible remedies need to be evaluated for you to achieve the maximum compensation possible.

Attorney Bruce A. Kugler has the necessary experience to help you.  He will participate in negotiations with the responsible party to reach a settlement, and if necessary, will take your case through the whole court process.  With his assistance, you can if necessary, file a claim or law suit against the party responsible for your accident and/or injuries.  However, filing a formal lawsuit may not even be necessary.  Settlements frequently happen before a law suit is even filed. Attorney Bruce A.
