Injuries from being thrown from a tractor
Being thrown from a moving vehicle such as a tractor can cause a range of injuries, varying from bumps and bruises to broken bones and worse. Some injuries we have encountered in such cases include:
- Head injuries caused by hitting the ground or a hard object
- Crush injuries caused by the vehicle continuing to move after the driver has come off, resulting in being run over
- Back and spinal injuries resulting in a loss of movement or mobility for a period of time
- Psychological trauma caused by the emotional ramifications of sustaining serious injuries which could potentially prevent the victim from living a normal life.
