Midwest farmers play a vital role in our economy. Unfortunately, in handling heavy equipment and machinery on a daily basis, farmers face considerable risk of suffering traumatic injuries or even death.
When families are confronted with the reality of a serious or fatal farm accident, our accident attorneys at Copple, Rockey, McKeever & Schlecht P.C., L.L.O., are here to help you through the difficult time. Our injury lawyers each have decades of experience advocating for accident victims and their families. With offices in Norfolk and Omaha, our farm accident attorneys are equipped to effectively represent the interests of clients throughout Nebraska. Call (402) 218-2641 for a consultation.
Our farm accident lawyers understand the risks Midwest farmers face. We also understand how these risks can be augmented by dangerous or defective farm equipment, poorly designed machinery, or other negligence. We thoroughly investigate farm accidents to determine what factors caused or contributed to the accident as well as who may be financially responsible. This enables us to pursue full compensation for accident victims and their families.
Our law firm handles personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits arising from all types of farm accidents, such as:
- Tractor rollovers, combine accidents, and other tractor accidents
- Auger accidents
- Baler accidents
- Grain cart or grain elevator accidents
- Accidents involving handling dangerous herbicides or pesticides
- Power takeoff accidents
- Other agricultural accidents
Given the dangerous equipment, machinery, and chemicals that farmers regularly work with, when accidents occur, the injuries are frequently life-changing and even are fatal. Farmers handling large quantities of chemicals can suffer severe chemical burn injuries. Workers handling machinery that lack proper shields or shut-off safety mechanisms may suffer amputation. All too many farm accidents result in wrongful death.
When farmers suffer catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, severe back injuries, or amputation, they may be incapable of ever returning to their occupation and bringing in income for the family. When a farmer tragically dies in an accident, the family is left not only grieving their loss, they are left to confront the financial realities of the loss of income to the family. Regardless of the type of accident, our law firm is committed to helping families recover for their losses.
