Farm Accident

St. Paul Farming Accident Lawyer

Farms are dangerous places. Farmers use complex and heavy equipment such as balers and combines. Escaped or frightened animals can be difficult to avoid or control. Toxic gases build up in silos, rain elevators and other storage equipment. People who live and work on farms are exposed to hazards like these every day.

Damages Are Available After Many Farm Accidents

People who are injured in farm accidents may be able to obtain compensation and damages for their medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. At the St. Paul law firm of Swor & Gatto, P.A., our attorneys help people throughout Minnesota get needed resources after a farm accident caused by the negligence of another. We also help families who lost loved ones in farm accidents, filing wrongful death claims so that people can recover from their grief without financial worry.

Our lawyers have been helping people recover damages and compensation since 1981. We have the knowledge and experience to evaluate injuries and accidents to determine if a case exists. Because we prepare every case for trial, we are often able to obtain large awards for our clients. Insurance companies usually prefer to avoid the cost and time required by a trial. They will often make better offers when they know an attorney is ready to try a case.
