Who Is the Victim of a Farming Accident?

When people think of farming accidents, they think of an accident that occurs on a farm, typically injuring or killing a worker of the farm or farm property. While this is the most common scenario, farming accidents can actually happen to anyone—including farm workers and non-farm workers injured by faulty equipment or chemical exposure.

For example, WKW had a case where a chemical sprayer had sprayed chemicals on someone in a parking lot of a store, seriously injuring the client; and another case where a client was mowing with a bush hog in the center of a divided highway when he was thrown off the equipment and the emergency shut off didn’t work.

Regardless of how the accident happened—while working on a farm, or by a faulty piece of farm equipment—WKW knows how to help you get the compensation you need and deserve.

Farming Accident Injuries and Fatalities

According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the National Safety Council:

  • 100 agricultural workers suffer a lost-work-time injury every day.
  • 300 youth farm workers die annually.
