Detroit Personal Injury Attorneys Representing Farmers After Serious Michigan Agricultural Accidents
Farm work is inherently dangerous, but most serious and fatal agricultural accidents are preventable. Regardless, many farm workers suffer injury or death in Michigan each year. Although farm accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, there are two main causes: machinery defects and unsafe/improper procedures.
Most farm equipment is designed to stand up to the stress put on it by farmers working long hours. Yet, machinery is only as strong as its weakest link. If a single component fails, the whole piece of equipment is compromised and a farmer may be put in grave danger. This problem may be compounded when the manufacturer outsources the production of some of its parts overseas.
