Farm Equipment On Roadway Accident Lawyer
There are many areas around Texas that are mixed environments where suburban communities share public roadways with farms in the country. Unfortunately, the combination of passenger vehicles and farm equipment is not always harmonious. There are many farm equipment accidents on public roadways that cause serious injuries and fatalities.
For decades, there have been two specific trends in rural development where farm equipment needing to share roadways with passenger vehicles has created a dangerous combination. This includes housing developments popping up in rural areas, where residential homeowners live close to operating farms. In addition, advancements in agricultural equipment technology has increased the size of farm equipment. This deadly combination has increased congestion on the roadways in rural parts of communities in Texas.
