Each day in Kentucky workers are injured on farms. Farming is one of the most dangerous occupations in the world. Attorney Aaron M. Murphy knows firsthand the dangers of farming. As someone who spent much of his childhood working on his family’s farms in Western Kentucky, Aaron Murphy has experienced farm injuries first hand and even seen fellow farm workers die from farming injuries.
There are special legal considerations when handling farm injury cases. In Kentucky, workers’ compensation law does not apply to agricultural jobs. This can be a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on the situation. Farm injuries happen for one of three reasons:
- the individual themselves was careless and caused the injury;
- another person was careless and caused the injury; or
- there was a defect in a machine or piece of equipment that caused the injury.
It is always a good idea to consult an attorney if you or someone you love is injured while on a farm. For any farming related accident in Kentucky, Aaron Murphy is an attorney who can help.
