A backhoe can be an invaluable piece of equipment on a farm. But like other heavy equipment, it can be dangerous. Backhoes can overturn on steep slopes, uneven ground, during sharp turns, as a result of striking an object such a stump, or due to instability from an elevated bucket. Other sources of injuries are being pinned between the bucket and another object, unsecured material falling from the bucket, improper transporting of the equipment, entanglement in PTO shafts, defective equipment, poorly maintained equipment, bypassed safety features, electrocution from elevated buckets contacting power lines, etc.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a backhoe accident, our award-winning team will be glad to sit down with you at our office, your house, the hospital or where is most convenient so we can discuss your case, answer your questions and clearly explain your rights. We handle all backhoe accidents on a contingency basis which means we only get paid if we recover money for you.
