Let Austin, Texas construction accident lawyer David Todd show you how to protect your rights after an accident and get his free guide.

When working on a construction site, there are many opportunities for accidents and injuries to happen. It is important in any construction injury case to examine the safety standards that apply and that may help establish any negligence that may have led to the accident. There is a long list of injuries and accidents that can occur on a construction site, including but not limited to:

  • Trench collapse
  • Electrocutions
  • Forklift and man-lift
  • Work-site falls and unguarded drop openings,
  • Failure to use fall protection
  • Unstable construction materials and scaffolding
  • Crane accidents
  • Falling materials
  • Chemical spills or burns

Even though construction sites are, by their very nature, dangerous places to work, that does not eliminate the employer's responsibility to keep employees, contractors and the public safe. And it doesn’t mean you lose your right to justice should you get hurt. It is crucial to work with an attorney who will conduct a proper investigation and evaluate all the evidence to properly pursue your claim.

  • Farm Injuries

Working in the farming and agricultural industry can be extremely dangerous, involving heavy and large equipment and hazardous chemicals. Farm accidents include:

  • Tractor accidents
  • Failure of three point hitch
  • Cotton strippers
  • Roller belts
  • Harvesters
  • Grain elevators and augers
  • Packing and loading injuries
  • Stampeding livestock
  • Entrapment in silos or confined places
  • Slip and fall injuries

Many farm accidents result from defective equipment and machinery. These devices may lack proper safety guards or may malfunction suddenly. Other accidents happen because coworkers or other contract laborers behave in a reckless or negligent manner. Most farm employers do not carry workers compensation but instead have farm liability. If defective or improperly serviced machinery injures a farm worker, the manufacturer or service company responsible for the defective equipment can be forced to pay civil damages in a third-party lawsuit.

Work injuries sustained from the result of farm accidents can be very severe. Injuries may include loss of limbs, broken bones, brain and spinal injuries, and even wrongful death. Injuries sustained on a farm can produce high medical bills and lost wages in conjunction with pain and suffering.

When farming accidents happen, the consequences can be tragic. Contact us at the Todd Law Firm at 512-472-7799 for further information and a free case evaluation.
