Trust worthy, honest, efficient, and effective – all words that describe John Edwards and his staff! Working with the team at Hepworth Holzer helped me focus on getting well and not on the financial worries of my situation.

Kathy Crowley

John Edwards and his staff are excellent. They took the time to explain the process completely and worked hard to ensure I would get the most out of my settlement. John is a very caring lawyer who cares more about his cleint then the possible gain from the end results. He was able to work with my insurance company to lower their reimbursement to the lowest possible amount and even ensured I would be taken care of with furture clains by waiving co-pays for my shoulder and neck injury.

Lee Morris

Mr Holzer has an above-and-beyond, do the right thing approach to life. He is caring and thorough. I’m grateful to know him and have his assistance!

Sarah Brown

Charlie Hepworth provided excellent legal services to my husband and I. In 2015, I was struck by a semi-truck on the connector and spent five weeks in the hospital. Charlie was referred to us by a friend and we were so fortunate to have him on board. He was compassionate, knowledgeable, highly experienced, and guided us every step of the way. We are pleased with the outcome and having Charlie on our team certainly made the long process of recovery a bit easier.

I am writing specifically about John Kluksdal. The work that he did for me was nothing but amazing. When it was time to go into my settlement hearing, he worked extremely hard and was able to get a justifiable settlement. He’s great!

Defining Farming Accident Claims

Anyone who is injured in a way that can be directly related to the actions or inactions of a negligent party is going to be entitled to compensation for their damages and injuries. The legal process is complicated but our Boise farming accident lawyers know how to handle these types of cases and get successful results for our clients. If you need help with your farming accident claim, we strongly suggest you reach out to us as soon as possible.

Working in agriculture is dangerous in the USA. The National Institute of Occupational Health and Safety says that approximately 167 people who have a farming/ agriculture job are going to have an injury on a daily basis. Of course, not all of these will result in bringing an injury claim but some of them are going to be severe enough to ruin the victim’s life. Back in 2012, there were 374 people who died while working on a farm.

If you bring a personal injury claim for your farming accident, you are essentially asking the insurance company to cover your damages, including medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. You also may be the reason a workplace becomes safer, if you bring a farming accident claim.

Do I Bring a Claim for My Farming Accident?

You absolutely should bring a claim if you have been hurt and it was the fault of another negligent party. You are entitled to justice and we do not want you to pass up on getting that for yourself. It would be a huge mistake to just brush it off and forget about it and deal with the burden of a farming accident without trying to get justice for yourself. Our Boise farming accident lawyers are here to guide you through this every step of the way.

Idaho Farm Accident Experience

Sorting out what rights you have when you have been involved in a farming accident is difficult. Our Boise farm accident attorneys have the knowledge, expertise and experience needed to help you:

  • Investigate your accident to determine whether a product manufacturer or other party is at fault for your injuries;
  • Arrange for highly qualified experts to inspect and test machinery and equipment for defects;
  • Arrange for unbiased medical experts to evaluate your injuries and economic losses;
  • File suit against the companies and people responsible for your injuries;
  • Handle trials and conduct settlement negotiations in an effort to accomplish your goals;
  • File a Worker’s Compensation claim so you get prompt medical attention and disability benefits;
  • File a claim for Social Security Disability benefits if you are not going to be able to return to work within 12 months of your injury;
  • Assist you with filing for other public benefits, including Medicaid, public housing and County Assistance.

Most Frequent Types of Farming Accidents

When looking into how these farming accidents happen, it is clear that there are many different reasons that farming accidents happen. The following are the most common types of farming accidents that people suffer from:

  • Tractor accidents: These account for most of the fatal incidents on a farm. The deaths that happen with tractors could have simply been avoided had the tractor been installed with a Rollover Protective Structure, also known as ROPS. In 2012, there was an estimate that 41% of the tractors in the USA still did not have ROPS installed.
  • ATV accidents: Many accidents happen on ATVs, because they are so frequently used on farms for daily operations.
  • Storage facility accidents: Storage facilities such as silos are places where a great deal of accidents happen in Boise. Some incidents include a farmer getting covered by grain in a silo, which could be a crushing/suffocation accident. Also, there are gases which may be toxic to inhale that farm workers are exposed to when they are in an enclosed area with it for a long period of time. There are also injuries from these structures failing and collapsing.
  • Machinery operation: A lot of accidents on farms happen because of heavy machinery. An example of this would be a farm worker getting their belt caught in a hay baler. Another example would be getting hair caught in a machine. The injuries can be severe.
  • Toxic chemicals: if a farm worker is exposed to toxic chemicals, they can suffer severe injuries to their skin and their respiratory system. Some chemicals are also linked to getting cancer.

There are, of course, other reasons farming accidents happen. Too often, however, farming accidents go unreported, which could mean that farming accidents are far more common that we think.

Client Reviews

stars

“During one of the most difficult times my family has ever gone through, the firm of Hepworth Holzer was our saving grace. Kurt Holzer, John Kluksdahl, and the rest of the firm worked tirelessly to get justice for our mother who was needlessly killed as a result of a drunken driving crash involving a negligent company. They not only secured an unprecedented settlement for my sisters and I, but also supported us during the criminal trial. I could not recommend this firm more!”
