Have you been injured on the job? If so, it’s not your fault!
As a farm worker, you are employed in one of the most hazardous of occupations. Many of these hazards are caused by defective farm equipment manufactured by corporations that fail to adequately ensure your safety. Yet, even though farm accidents are often caused by unsafe machinery, many injured farmers are afraid to seek compensation when they are hurt on the job. As a farm worker, you need to understand that you have nothing to fear by contacting the Farm Injury Resource Center. Your call to us is confidential; we will not contact your employer.
Remember: It’s not your fault. Defective equipment is to blame for the majority of farm injuries and deaths. If you have been injured, you may be entitled to compensation. No matter what state you live in or what your nationality or employment status is, the Farm Injury Resource Center can help you recover the costs of your injury.
There are many types of compensation you may be eligible for, including:
- Medical bills
