Farming is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States, and thousands of workers are injured or killed in farm accidents every year. Tractor accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries on farms, and they can occur because of defective equipment, improper training, operator error, or other types of negligence. Those who have been injured in accidents involving farm equipment should consult with an attorney to learn how they can pursue financial compensation from those who were responsible.

We will fight to make sure your family is made whole and that those who were responsible for your injury are held liable for your damages.

Common Tractor Accident Injuries

Tractor operators, those who work around tractors, and others may be injured in tractor accidents. These injuries can occur in a variety of situations, including:

  • Tractor rollovers - A tractor may turn over due to operator error, including in situations involving uneven ground, hazardous weather, obstacles in a tractor's path, or loss of control when making sharp turns. Because tractors are very large and heavy, a person may be crushed in a rollover, and they may suffer brain injuries, spine injuries, bone fractures, or amputations.
  • Being run over by a tractor - Operator error can result in a tractor colliding with or driving over a worker, and a person may be injured by the weight of the tractor or any other equipment that is attached. These types of accidents can also occur if an operator falls from a tractor or if a tractor begins moving before a person climbs into the driver's seat.
  • Equipment malfunctions - Defective parts on a tractor can lead to dangerous accidents, including faulty rollover protection systems or dead-man switches meant to prevent a tractor from moving when a driver is not in the operating seat. Workers may also be injured due to problems with the power take-off or couplings between tractors and other equipment, and entanglement in machinery can lead to amputations or other bodily injuries.
  • Traffic accidents - Tractors are often operated on roads and highways near farms. Drivers in other vehicles may be injured if a tractor's operator does not follow the rules of the road, or farm workers may be injured if drivers do not drive safely when sharing the road with farm equipment.

When farm workers are injured in tractor accidents, they will most likely be eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits, and they may also be able to receive compensation through a third-party claim against manufacturers of defective or dangerous equipment. Other types of injury victims, such as drivers or passengers who are involved in a motor vehicle collision with a tractor, may be able to pursue compensation from a negligent tractor operator or their employer.
