Agriculture and Farming Work Related Injuries

Minnesota has thousands of acres of fertile farmland that many families call their own. And while farm work is an essential part of life in our state, it can also be dangerous due to the heavy equipment and machinery farmers often use.

At Fields Law Firm, we appreciate the work of our state’s farmers and agriculture workers. That’s why our Minnesota Workers Compensation attorneys are dedicated to making sure they get the right advice at the right time. If you or someone you love suffered an injury while working in the farming or agriculture industries, contact us at 1-888-343-5375, or complete our free contact form.

Client Success Story
A man with a long history of back problems sustained an acute low back injury while he was loading product at the farm where he worked. The client required three major back surgeries to treat the injury. His positioning during one of these surgeries caused the client to suffer a neck injury.

Our team helped the client get the support needed from his doctors to demonstrate that his work injury caused his lower back and neck conditions. One of our attorneys successfully mediated this case, obtaining the client a $140,000 settlement for the injured worker.

Types of Injuries

Some of the most common types of injuries that farm and agriculture workers may suffer while working include:

  • Crushing Injuries
    Heavy farm equipment, such as tractors and combines, may be prone to overturning on uneven or unsteady terrain, especially if not properly maintained. Workers may get trapped under the equipment and suffer crushing injuries.
  • Cutting Injuries
    Farm workers often have to use sharp blades for clearing brush, cutting down trees, and gathering crops and other produce. If safety techniques aren’t shared with workers, they may accidentally cut themselves and suffer deep wounds.
  • Fire and Burn Injuries
    Grain elevators, barns, hayfields, and other areas of farms are at high-risk of catching fire, especially during droughts. Workers who don’t have adequate equipment to put out fires or safety training to avoid them may suffer serious burn injuries.
  • Transportation Injuries
    Agricultural workers must load, transport, and deliver products and equipment to and from farms. Serious auto and trucking accidents can occur on roads and highways, causing fractured bones, cuts, traumatic brain injuries, and even death.

Our Minnesota workers’ compensation law firm understands that farm work can be hazardous, especially if safety precautions aren’t followed. Our workers’ comp attorneys and paralegals have helped many people with injuries due to farm work, and we can answer any questions you might have. Contact us today and get our experience on your side.

SETTLEMENTS AND RECOVERIES IN ALL CASES DEPEND ON SPECIFIC FACTUAL AND LEGAL CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH ARE UNIQUE TO EACH CLIENT’S CASE. PAST CASE RESULTS ARE NOT A GUARANTEE OR PREDICTION OF SIMILAR RESULTS IN FUTURE CASES WHICH THE FIELDS LAW FIRM AND ITS LAWYERS MAY UNDERTAKE.

I had the pleasure to work with Michael and Annie on my LTD case. When my claim was denied by the insurance carrier, Michael didn't hesitate to take them on with an appeal. He worked diligently on the appeal and ultimately won this for me. Mind you, this wasn't a huge case but he treated me like it was and as if I was the only case he was representing. He kept me abreast of vital information, it was clear that he knew his stuff and wasn't afraid to take on the big insurance company. Michael was much more than I ever expected given that our relationship was entirely remote, handled by telephone and email only. Not only is he a strong lawyer, he treated me with compassion and respect. I am beyond pleased with him and the Fields Law team. Michael cares about his clients and he gets the job done for them because he knows how impactful an injury can be to both a person's well-being and their financial security. I highly recommend Michael and Fields Law whether you are local to their Minnesota offices or out of state like myself.read more

Fields Law Firm is great. Patrick Kramer, my lawyer, is fantastic. He and his legal assistant Samantha K. have handled my case for several years. They have kept me informed every step of the way. They are both easy to contact. I have both of their phone numbers and email addresses and they respond promptly to any messages I leave. Without their help I would not have been able to get the disability company to fulfill their promises. It is a relief to leave all the dealings with the disability insurance company in their hands.read more

Field Law Firm was great my lawyer Zach Schmoll was more than I could ask for. He always kept me in the loop and explain everything perfectly, got back to me whenever I called less than 24 hrs and was a extremely nice guy. This guy is young and knows what he is doing so please don’t let the age fool you. I had a wonderful experience with Field Law and will refer anyone with legal matters to them.read more

Fields Law Firm is simply the very best when it comes to representing you & fighting for your rights! They are a "10 Star" Law Firm hands down! Michael Kemmmitt & Sarah Christensen were simply outstanding to work with. They took over my long term disability case after I was being denied my benefits & gave me the moral support & law experience that I needed to win my case. They were supportive throughout my case & they will fight tooth & nail to assure your rights are not being denied. It is so rare to find a law firm that treats you like YOU are the most important person to them. I HIGHLY recommend Fields Law Firm. They are truly advocates for justice.read more

Michael and Samantha were always giving me updates in a very timely manner. They were very good at getting back with me if I had questions, and they didn't have the answer at the time of our discussion. They were very thorough in their handling of my case, and we received a positvie ruling due to their efficiency and expertise. Thank you very much Michael and Samantha, I appreciate all that you did to help me with my case. I would definitely refer people to you, as well as use you in the future. Benjamin Chadwick.read more
