Farm Accident Attorney in the Minneapolis Area
Farming is among the most dangerous occupations. The frequent road use of implements and the requirement to contain animals is rife with risk for serious injuries. For example, we have represented a motorcycle driver who collided with escaped livestock, and a motorist who struck an unlit implement driven pre-dawn on a rural road. Both resulted in severe injuries and both were preventable. We will conduct a careful analysis of the factors that led to your injury, and if necessary, obtain expert accident reconstruction opinions to determine whether your injury was preventable and if there is a viable claim. Call us today at 763-682-1082.
Farm work is dangerous work. Large vehicles, powerful equipment and unpredictable livestock are all common sources of serious injuries. But increased risk inherent in farm work doesn’t mean you are without recourse if you are injured on the job. When you engage Kiernan Personal Injury Attorneys, you secure your best chance of receiving a settlement that fully compensates you for your damages.
Farm workers aren’t the only ones at risk of getting injured in farm accidents. Motorists are frequently injured by obstacles that nearby farms are responsible for creating, such as escaped livestock, inadequately lighted farm vehicles, and cargo that has fallen off trucks. If you were injured as a result of an agricultural producer’s negligence, then you may be able to file a claim against that business’s insurer.

Trust us to support your claim with meticulously gathered evidence, expertly negotiate on your behalf, and pursue your claim in civil court if that’s what it takes to get the settlement you are rightly owed.
