While tractors are an essential tool for the agricultural industry, they are also the leading cause of injuries and fatalities among farmers in the United States. This is largely due to the fact that tractors are designed for function, not safety. In fact, over 50% of tractors don’t have seat belts, protective cabins, or rollover protection systems. Because of this intentional manufacturing flaw, personal injury claims involving tractors are highly successful.
Each year, tractor accidents are responsible for thousands of injuries and over 100 fatalities.

Because their products are so unsafe, it’s incredibly difficult for manufacturing companies to produce an effective legal defense.
