Farm Vehicle Accidents

Farming is not the first thing many people think of when they think of California. However, there are many farms throughout California, growing the beautiful produce and cattle many people throughout the state, and the rest of the country, can enjoy. Farming is a lot of work, though. It requires different equipment, such as tractors, balers, ploughs, planters, and more. Often these vehicles have to venture out onto the roads. Even when they remain on the farm, they are often involved in accidents with farm workers and others who enter the property. Farm vehicle accidents in San Francisco are some of the most complicated. Most farmers are exempt from carrying workers’ compensation insurance, even when they have workers on their farm. As such, the best way to claim compensation after a farm vehicle accident is to file a personal injury claim with the help of an experienced San Francisco farm vehicle accident lawyer.

Common Injuries Caused by Farm Vehicle Accidents

There are many different types of injuries that could result from a farm vehicle accident. The most common of these include:

  • Amputations, whether accidentally at the site or during treatment
  • Brain injury
  • Back injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Severe lacerations
  • Damage to internal organs and internal bleeding

When you incur any of these injuries, or any others, that are caused by someone else’s negligence, it is important that you pursue the compensation you deserve with the help of your San Francisco farm vehicle accident lawyer.

Common Types of Vehicles in Farm Accidents in San Francisco

There are many different types of vehicles used on farms, and they are sometimes involved in accidents. The most common vehicles on farms include:

  • Forklifts
  • Hydraulic plows
  • Backhoes
  • Harvesters
  • Sweepers
  • Elevator loaders

When these vehicles are involved in an accident, they often cause catastrophic injuries, for which accident victims deserve to be compensated.

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit After a Farm Vehicle Accident

Just like any other vehicle accident, to file a personal injury claim for a farm vehicle accident in San Francisco, you must be able to prove someone else was negligent. This is true whether or not the accident happened on farm property. For example, if the farm owner was negligent in maintaining their vehicles and that caused an accident, the farm owner could be held liable. On the other hand, if the farm vehicle had to leave the property and another driver caused an accident, that other driver could also be held liable.
