Farm and Construction Accidents
People who work on farms often use heavy equipment and other machinery, such as:
- Farm trucks
- Combines and balers
- Plows and harrows
An accident with one of these machines can result in serious injuries, dismemberment, amputations or wrongful death.
Construction sites are usually filled with many employers, employees and contractors with various levels of training. These people use dangerous tools and equipment in dangerous environments. Common causes of construction injuries include:
- Falls from ladders and scaffolding
- Defective tools and machinery
- Heavy equipment collapses
- Contact with power lines or natural gas lines
Construction workers often suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries, such as electrocution, brain injuries, amputations, burns, and injuries to the spinal cord. In addition to recovering benefits from workers' compensation, negligence by a third-party employer or an injury caused by a defective machine may mean multiple sources of liability.
