Defective Farm Equipment Accidents and Claims
If you or someone in your family has been seriously injured in an accident involving defective or malfunctioning farm machinery or equipment, contact Omaha product liability attorney Larry R. Demerath for a free consultation about your right to compensation.
Today's family farm in Nebraska is as likely as not to cover 2,000 acres, with increasingly expensive and sophisticated equipment doing much of the work. In cases involving defective design or dangerous modifications to any of the machinery, serious or fatal accidents can result. These include traumatic amputation, head injuries, back injuries, multiple fractures, asphyxiation, or exposure to toxic levels of dangerous herbicides and pesticides.
As a native Nebraskan with 35 years of personal injury litigation experience, Larry Demerath has a solid understanding of the risks of farm work and the dangers inherent in defective or poorly designed equipment. He can help you recover damages against defendant manufacturers and distributors of such machines and implements as the following:
Most farm machines have crush points, pinch points, cutting edges, or rotary drives that too often are unshielded. In a long day's work, it can sometimes be easy to forget that they're even running. Any loose clothing, strap, or belt can trap a farmer or farm worker into a dangerous machine with disastrous results. Emergency shutoff features frequently don't work in time to avoid the loss of a limb or even worse injuries.
