Have you been hurt by farm equipment? The people who make the equipment you work with should do everything possible to prevent injuries. And it’s their responsibility to help you when they don’t do so and you get hurt.
Tireless Advocates for Farm Workers
In Oregon, undocumented workers who some refer to as illegal immigrants keep our farms and vineyards productive. You are entitled to bring a claim and have a trial in court even if you are an undocumented worker.
Farm work is the most dangerous occupation in the United States. Farm workers are five times more likely to die on the job than the national average for all other types of work. However, these types of injuries are underreported and employers often duck responsibility for taking good care of their workers.
We can help you. We’ve helped many farm workers who can no longer work because of their injuries get the money they need to pay their medical bills, lost wages and take care of themselves and their families. Coming forward about your injuries helps prevent the same thing from happening to others.
