Failure to Provide Appropriate Instrumentalities or Tools

Skilled Mississippi Farm Injury Lawyers Fight for Justice When Farmers Fail to Provide Appropriate Tools

Fighting against employer negligence on farms

Farming is a complex occupation that requires the use of numerous tools and materials. As such, farm owners have a duty to ensure that their workers are provided with the tools needed to adequately and safely complete their jobs. When owners fail to meet this duty, serious injuries can occur. Workers and others can be left with catastrophic medical conditions.

The lawyers of Merkel & Cocke, P.A. put more than three decades of experience to work for the benefit of each client. Our experienced Mississippi farm injury attorneys understand the duty of care that farm owners owe to their employees, as well as the general public. When they breach this responsibility, we stand up and fight for compensation that is fair and just. If you were injured in a farm-related accident, we can help you understand your legal options.

When inadequate tools lead to serious farm injuries

On a daily basis, farm workers use a variety of tools to complete necessary tasks. From repairing fences to harvesting crops, these laborers trust that they are being provided with tools that are properly maintained and effective for their intended purposes. Unfortunately, budgetary considerations and the desire for higher profits may cause farm owners to provide their workers with inadequately maintained or second-hand tools. These farmers put their workers at risk by providing them with tools that may not have been properly maintained by the previous owner.

Our skilled lawyers have seen the catastrophic injuries that can result from the lack of appropriate tools. We are ready and able to guide farm employees through their workers’ compensation or personal injury claims.
