Common work injuries among agricultural workers include lifting injuries, repetitive strain injuries, back and knee injuries, and injuries after falling from heights. Some workers suffer traumatic brain injury or amputation. Others develop occupational diseases from exposure to hazardous chemicals.
After an on-the-job accident, injured agricultural workers are faced with medical bills for their treatment, while at the same time there is no money coming in because they can’t work. It’s a difficult situation that the workers’ compensation system is supposed to address. But the system favors employers and insurance companies, who regularly try to keep their payments as low as possible. Workers aren’t treated fairly.
