Farming Equipment Accident Attorney: Workplace Injury Lawyer


Tractor Accident and Defective Farm EquipmentCalifornia is one of the largest farming centers in not only the United States, but around the world.  In fact, California continually ranks as the number 1 state in terms of cash farms receipts, a total that surpassed $43.5 billion in 2011 alone.  California alone accounts for 15 percent of the national crop revenue and 7 percent of the revenue for livestock and livestock products. However, the farming industry also happens to be one of the most dangerous industries in the US.  Agriculture is the second most dangerous industry in the U.S., trailing only the mining industry with a death rate of 26.1 per every 100,000 employees, a total that reached 476 farmer deaths in 2010.

Defective Farm Products is a Leading Cause of Farmer Death and Injury

The leading cause of farmer death and injury are defective farming equipment.  Indeed, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicated that of the 9,479 farming deaths between 1992 and 2009, the leading cause of death was tractor overturn, causing roughly over 1,500 deaths in that period.  Defective farm products were especially dire for youth farmers (under the age of 20) as 23 percent of their fatalities were attributed to machinery, and 19 percent to motor vehicles including ATV’s. Tractor fatalities are especially grim as they account for 36% of farming deaths.  Although overturns are the leading cause of death on farms (365 total between 2003-2007), other causes of tractor fatality were run-overs (243 deaths), vehicle collisions (48 deaths), and caught in equipment (37 deaths).
