The risks of defective combine harvesters

Posted on January 6, 2015 2:28 pm under Product Liability

Considered one of the most necessary pieces of farming equipment, a combine harvester, sometimes called combine, is responsible for cutting the crop during harvest, separating the grain from the stalk, and removing the grain from the chaff. Combines merge significant steps in farming into one machine, making the process convenient, economical, and labor-efficient.

While in operation, combine harvesters may cause serious accidents that could result in debilitating injuries and lost lives. Accidents involving its powered components are considered among the most common, which may happen when an operator comes in contact with the machine’s moving parts while reaping, threshing, or winnowing crops. Lacerations, broken bones, lost of limb and death are among the known dangers of combine harvesters.

Unfortunately, the use of a defectively designed and manufactured combine may significantly increase your risk of debilitating, even fatal risks. If you have been injured due to a defective farm machine, let a lawyer at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® look into your situation to assess the possibility of filing a legal claim against the manufacturer involved.
