There are over 1 million head of cattle and 15,000 beef producers across Florida. Other livestock including pigs, horses, goats and sheep are found in large numbers throughout the state.
Two types of injuries are most widespread when people interact with livestock. Motor vehicle accidents occur when livestock venture out to roadways. This often results from caretakers’ failure to properly secure and segregate animals in enclosures and from the public. Injuries also occur when handling livestock during feedings, loading and transporting and while administering medical care.
Three types of law cover injuries, illnesses and wrongful deaths related to cattle and farming operations. Graves Thomas Rotunda Injury Law Group’s personal injury, workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability attorneys represent clients in all three.
