Farmers increasingly rely on large agricultural companies to supply the seed and materials they need to feed the world. But these companies also have the power to cause serious damage to small farmers. If you’ve suffered a serious financial loss as a result of the actions of an agricultural company, contact the national law firm of Watts Guerra.
Companies like ConAgra, Monsanto, and Bayer CropScience have a huge presence in the world’s food market, but it’s often the small farmer who bears the brunt of their actions. Decisions by these firms can have a significant impact on crop prices. Actions these companies take can even threaten the livelihood of the farmers who grow their crops.
If you’ve suffered serious financial damages because of the actions of a large agricultural company, consulting with an experienced attorney is you best course of action.
Mass production is the very nature of big agribusiness. When one agriculture or farming company causes significant damages, hundreds and even thousands of farmers can suffer severe financial consequences. For this reason, cases against agricultural companies are often handled in a type of lawsuit called a “mass tort”.
A mass tort happens when a number of cases are brought together in a single court and evidence is shared between the cases. Mass torts are often confused with class action lawsuits, but they are actually very different. In class action suits, a large number of plaintiffs are all given the same financial award, in mass torts each individual case is still decided on its own.
Big agriculture is big business, and like all big business, the large companies which work with farmers have vast resources and top-tier legal teams working for them. When you need to file a lawsuit against a major agricultural company, you need to work with a firm that can put equal resources to work for you.
