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.

A growing body of scientific research suggests cognitive biases are impeding physicians’ abilities to treat patients properly. A range of systematic errors in human-decision making is being linked back to the cognitive biases.

Many small objects often have warnings like “Choking Hazard” or “Not Suitable for Children,” signaling to consumers the risk if a child were to get to the product without supervision. The Washington Post reported on one particular object that is causing injuries, deaths, and is leaving those in charge of public safety scrambling to find a solution: the rare-earth magnet.

The magnets are tiny balls that are typically desk toys—they can be something to fiddle with or make a small piece of art. However, they are also incredibly powerful and can cause a lot of harm if ingested. There has been back and forth between the manufacturers of these products and those in charge of public safety. Let’s take a closer look at this issue.
