Idaho is a state rich in farmland and natural resources. Agricultural disputes are part of this way of life.
Farm Accidents and Injuries
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ranks farming as one of the top ten most dangerous careers in the nation. As Idaho natives, we understand the risks inherent in the farming industry. These hazards include:
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dangerous and defective equipment
- Tractor and auger accidents
- Chemical accidents and burns
A farming accident can compromise much more than the victim’s health. If you depend on agriculture for your livelihood, a serious injury can take a tremendous toll on your finances.At Ruchti & Beck, we have in-depth knowledge about the law governing farm accidents and injuries. We thoroughly investigate the incident to determine fault. With the help of medical and technical experts, we build a case created to obtain the maximum recovery available. We will work hard to pursue your legal rights. Because each case is different, we do not believe in taking a one-size-fits-all approach to farm-related accidents. We approach each case with a fresh perspective and a willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve a favorable result for that particular client. Whether your case is well-suited to settlement negotiation or more appropriate for litigation, we are fully committed to helping you attain the best outcome possible.
Crop Loss Cases
A successful farming business is directly tied to the crops in the ground. In today’s scientifically complex farming operations, business owners rely on pesticides to maintain the delicate natural balance necessary for a successful crop. Even a small mistake in application or the formulation process can destroy an entire year’s worth of crops. We represent farmers against the individuals and corporation’s at fault for significant crop loss.
