Texas is home to grasslands, farm lands, and hard-working farmers. As we drive our country roads, it is not uncommon to see tractors driving along the road or working a field that will eventually send food to our grocery stores and ultimately to our homes. Most of those who live in the city don’t know much or think much about tractor related injuries, but those who live in rural areas know these types of injuries far too well. The National Agricultural Safety Initiative reports that on average, 50% of agricultural deaths are caused by tractor accidents. Many times, manufacturers fail to make these vehicles as safe as they should, leading to unnecessary and tragic deaths and severe injuries. If you are involved in a tractor related accident, Samples Ames would like to talk with you about your options during one of our free case strategy sessions.
