Farm Equipment Dangers
Few “city folk” spend any time on the farm but for much of the US that is their way of life. What most people don’t know is that Dixon Law Office founder, G. Grant Dixon III, spent many summers working on a farm. “My mother’s side of the family is all farmers,” Grant said. As he got to be a teenager, Grant spent many summer months on the Iowa fields doing farm work. “Some of the hardest days of my life were spent working fence, herding cattle and walking beans,” Grant continued.
The lessons of hard work taught on the farm have served Grant well. He said, “working like that helped me to relate with my clients. I understand how hard their day’s work really is. I have it pretty easy compared to most of them.”
Farm work also showed Grant how dangerous their work is. Indeed, farmers have a shorter life expectancy than most the work is so dangerous. Farm injuries often occur because farmers work with very heavy and powerful equipment. Tractors, spreaders, combines, augers, and many other machines don’t stop when a farmer’s body part gets pulled in.
