Motor vehicle accidents top the list of insurance claims in farming in agribusiness.
A statement from Nationwide Insurance says that accidents, workers compensation and misapplication of chemicals or drift issues, have accounted for more than 50,000 claims over the last three years. However, over the past three years, motor vehicle accidents have accounted for more than 20,000 total commercial agribusiness claims. If you’re one of the victims of vehicular accidents, you may seek legal advice from a personal injury lawyer about filing a claim. Hiring a personal injury lawyer can help ensure that your rights will be protected throughout the process. You may also consult a social security disability attorney if your injuries rendered you temporarily or permanently disabled.
Nationwide, which calls itself the number one farm insurer in the United States, say that by sharing the data, the company hopes “to help agribusiness owners recognize areas of their operation that may need increased safety precautions.”
Other top agribusiness claims include falls, food-related claims, animal bites, glass breakage, weather damage and fire or loss.
