Tractor accident leaves 1 man dead, 1 injured

Farming is well known to be one of the most dangerous professions in our country with many opportunities for serious accidents or illnesses. Exposure to chemicals and large machinery make the possibility of farm accidents such as grain bin explosions, combine accidents and more real to every farmer, every day. Safe work habits and processes are critical to keeping workers safe.

A recent news article reported on an accident on a family farm in Brown County. Two men, a father and son, were working on a tractor, performing some needed repairs. For reasons not identified in the article, the tractor slipped into gear and hit both of the men. The work on the tractor was being done inside a shed. The tractor also had a front-end loaded attached to it while the work was taking place.

The father, who was 91 years old, died from the accident. His 62-year old son was taken from the accident scene to a hospital in Springfield and noted to be in good condition at the time the article was written. The west-central Illinois farm is about 60 miles northwest of Springfield.

If you work on a farm, whether a large corporately run farm or a small family farm, taking care to prevent tractor accidents or other problems when working is of high importance to you. If you have been the victim of an injury or illness while on the job at a farm, you may benefit from a consultation with a personal injury attorney.
