TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS WITH FARM EQUIPMENT NEED LEGAL ASSISTANCE
If you have ever been driving through a large agricultural area of the country, the odds are good that you have been stuck behind a piece of farm equipment on the road. When farming equipment is driven on public roads, it can cause serious delays. While this can be frustrating at best, others driving recklessly to avoid the holdup can be downright dangerous.
Sometimes accidents occur with these pieces of equipment, which result in severe injuries. With the size of most machines used on a farm, it shouldn’t be surprising to think of just how much damage they can cause. They often have sharp edges or parts used to dig into the dirt or move large items. When an accident occurs, these parts can cause far more damage than you would find with a car. This also means that any injuries you may suffer will be different and often worse.
NOT ALL INSURANCES ARE THE SAME
When you are in an accident with another vehicle, it is typically a car or van. This requires knowledge on the part of your attorney to know how to navigate the insurance company. However, an accident with a commercial vehicle will often require a different approach due to the difference between personal and commercial insurance. When it comes to an accident and injuries involving farm equipment, it is difficult to know what kind of insurance is used.
An incident with farming equipment or machinery presents unique and nuanced questions that deserve a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. Wayne Hardee is experienced with farm equipment accidents and is who you want on your side for farm accident and equipment cases.
