Farming is hard, essential work, and in Arkansas, it’s one of our leading industries. On top of that, it’s also tiring. According to the National Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, farming and agriculture are in the top five most dangerous occupations, and the farming industry employs over 2 million people. One of the biggest reasons that farming is dangerous is because it requires industrial tools, like tractors, to efficiently harvest, till, and plant crops.

While tractors are necessary to farm work, they can also be harmful when tractor accidents occur. At McMath Woods, P.A., we know that an injury from a tractor accident is a major setback in your life since farming isn’t a job that can be put on hold. We can help you recover workers’ compensation for a tractor accident that left you injured and unable to farm.

Let’s look at some of the causes of tractor accidents and how often they happen.
