New York City Farm Equipment Accident Lawyer


What is Farm Equipment?

Farming has been a part of the human experience dating as far back as the 8th Century B.C.E. in the Fertile Crescent, when civilization began, and assumed agrarian practices. With the dawning of modernity, the fields saw the mechanization of much of the farming tasks; and, with that mechanization, came significant danger of serious injury because of accidents that involve farm machines.

From a negligently operated bailer, to a runaway tractor, the potential for personal injury is present on a farm, despite the seemingly quaint and demur perspective most have of rural-farm-life. Given that thousands of pounds of machinery, designed to perform such task as separating corn from its husks with razor-sharp-blades, are being used, the inclusion of even a small degree of negligence on the part of an operator, owner, or manufacturer of the machine can result in horrific injuries, loss of body-parts, or even death.

How does Farm Equipment Work?

The mechanism of the efficacy of farm equipment is, simply put, the utilizing of mechanical torque power, through the application of (in most situations) gasoline motors to significantly increase the capacity of any one individual to plow, sow, or reap the crops of any agricultural product. Additionally, farm equipment can also be utilized to minimize the time it takes to accomplish the above tasks, and thereby save considerable time for the one tasked with the plowing, sowing, or reaping of crops.

What Injuries are Caused when using Farm Equipment?

While it is difficult to specify the myriad of injuries that can befall someone when negligence and farm equipment are both in the equation, some significant injuries that can occur because of farm equipment include:

  • Abrasions;
  • Contusions;
  • Lacerations;
  • Broken bones;
  • Concussions;
  • Hemorrhage;
  • Amputations;
  • Blinding; and, even,
  • Death.
