Were you hurt in a farming accident in Kentucky? Have you been forced to deal with constant pain and health issues, or are your struggling to pay for costly medical expenses and other financial problems? If so, you are not alone, and you may be able to get compensation from those who are responsible for your suffering with the help of Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton, LLP.
Farming is one of the industries Kentucky takes great pride in, but working on a farm can expose you to specific risks. While some of those risks are inevitable, others are due to negligence on the part of farm equipment manufacturers or the farm itself. Because of the size and power of farm equipment and the very physical nature of farm work, farm accidents often lead to severe injuries that are often expensive to treat. These injuries may level you with life-long pain and difficulties returning to work.
When someone else’s mistakes have put you in this challenging position, they should be the one to pay for it, not you. To get the compensation you are entitled to, though, you’ll need to enlist the services of a Kentucky farming accident lawyer with Hare, Wynn, Newell & Newton, LLP.

Farming Accident Claims in Kentucky
A farming accident can occur in many different ways. Farms, for all their beauty, can be dangerous places. Some of the farming accident cases we see include:
- Overturned tractors: Tractors are large machines, and they are meant to be sturdy. When one of them overturns, they can pin down those within and those nearby. These accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or death.
- Entanglement with farm machines: Farming machines are meant to have features that keep those using them safe from getting caught and entangled. When those safety mechanisms fail, or when some other malfunction occurs, those using the machines can be put at severe risk. These injuries often include the loss of limbs or other debilitation injuries.
- Falling structures and objects: A farm is full of objects that can cause serious harm if they aren’t kept in the proper place and adequately secured.
- Equipment can fall on someone, ladders can tip over, and grain bins can collapse. A falling object can cause severe head injuries that may lead to traumatic brain injuries or other long-term medical difficulties. Meanwhile, a crumbling edifice can lead to death or very extreme injuries.
- Suffocation accidents: Farmers may be at risk of passing out or suffocating in a grain bin or other enclosed area on the farm due to manure gas or silo gas. Such accidents can lead to brain damage or death.
Not every accident on a farm is due to negligence, and so not all accidents can necessarily lead to claims. To find out if your farming accident is eligible for a claim, contact our office for more information.
