San Jose Agricultural Accidents Attorney

Farm Accident Injury Lawyer in Santa Clara County, San Joaquin Valley, and the South Bay Area

The agricultural industry is among the most dangerous fields of work in the United States. A wide variety of accidents can occur on farms. These accidents can lead to devastating injuries, bringing pain, suffering, loss, and expense to the accident victim. Moving forward from these injuries can be difficult, especially if a person has to deal with large medical expenses and is temporarily or permanently unable to return to work. People and families who have been affected by agricultural accidents will need to determine what steps they can take to receive compensation for the injuries they have suffered.

Whether you were injured as a farmer, a farm employee, a delivery person, a buyer, or a visitor to an agricultural installation, the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III welcomes the opportunity to explain how we can help. We can provide guidance on the forms of compensation that may be available, and we will work to ensure that the responsible parties will be held accountable for the damages your family has suffered.

Addressing Injuries in Farm Accidents

You may have suffered a serious injury at an orchard, an organic vegetable farm, a vineyard, a fish farm, or a livestock ranch in Northern California. Potential injuries could include:

Litigating for All Types of Accidents

Your injury — or your loved one's fatal accident — may have been caused by an accident involving an animal. It may have involved a recreational vehicle such as an ATV. It may have been caused by contact between humans and farm equipment or machinery, such as cullers, tillers, or tractors. Irrigation equipment, milking equipment, chippers, and shredders are all examples of farm machinery that sometimes injures people when accidents happen. Your agricultural accident may have involved heavy equipment, such as:

  • Forklifts
  • Hydraulic plows
  • Backhoes
  • Harvesters
  • Sweepers
  • Elevator loaders

Getting the Facts, Fighting for Compensation

Whatever the circumstances, we urge you to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. A thorough investigation will be most successful in the hours and days after the accident when evidence is still available and eyewitness testimony will be most credible. It is important to work with a lawyer whom you can trust — a California farm accident attorney who has a strong track record of favorable results in rural personal injury cases.

Our law firm has represented Californians who had been injured in a variety of country settings, helping them get the compensation that they needed to move forward after a serious or catastrophic injury. We can make sure you receive any workers' compensation benefits you qualify for, and we can also help you pursue third-party claims against others, such as the manufacturers of defective equipment. Our goal is to help you receive the full compensation you need to provide for your current and future expenses related to your injuries.
