Farm accidents and filing a civil action

On Behalf of | Apr 11, 2024 | Personal Injury

While there are many industries in North Dakota, some seek a career in farming. Whether it is your family’s farm, or you work for a company farm, the reality is that it is a dangerous industry. This is true no matter the type of farming, as all require heavy machinery to operate.

While training and proper safety protocols are put in place, this will not always prevent injuries or harm from occurring. If machinery malfunctions or negligence occurs, this could result in a serious and unexpected accident. Thus, those harmed in a farm accident should take the time to understand how the incident occurred, who is liable for the harm suffered and what legal options are available to you.

Personal injury action

A personal injury action might be a common civil suit, but it can be complex and challenging to navigate.
