Our Mission Ranch Accident Attorneys Help You Understand Your Rights
When Tractors or Farming Equipment Causes Accidents
Agriculture is an important industry in Texas, contributing over $23 billion dollars to the state’s economy every year. And ranching and farming supports over 162,000 Texas jobs.
As more people move to the state and our suburbs continue to grow, drivers are more likely to come into contact with tractors and other types of farm vehicles on the road.
Farm vehicles have the right to use the roads as long as these vehicles are being used for farming-related activities. And they still have to follow the rules like everybody else.
These large, slow-moving vehicles create challenges for other drivers. Two major causes of traffic collisions are tractors that make unsafe maneuvers and impatient automobile drivers who attempt to pass tractors without taking the necessary precautions.
Common Injuries in Ranch Accidents
Any farmer or agricultural worker knows that the work can be dangerous. However, when you use caution and the right safety gear, you have the right to expect that the equipment you use will function properly.
Unfortunately, defective designs, manufacturing defects, and failure to warn about possible hazards can all result in catastrophic outcomes. Some of the most common severe injuries we see in farm accidents resulting from defective equipment and machinery include:
- Crush injuries
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries (up to and including paralysis)
Sadly, each of these injuries can have lifelong effects, from permanent disability to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In the worst case, these injuries may prove fatal.
How The Osiris A. Gonzalez Law Firm Can Help
The companies that manufacture farm equipment are multinational corporations. When somebody is injured or killed using one of their products, they have the resources and the money to take aggressive action in order to protect their bottom line.
They may offer a pittance of a settlement to make a claim go away, or they may deny responsibility, fully confident that victims and their attorneys don’t have the wherewithal to pursue the matter.
