Wilson & Hiatt has a proud history of representing rural workers, agricultural and farm workers, and those who like to do their work outside. We are always helping our rural and farm workers who are suffering from injuries related to the chemicals they used at work. With Herbicides, Pesticides, and other chemicals going under new EPA review, we are learning that many of these chemicals branded as safe and used by workers daily were known by their makers to be dangerous and cause terrible, often life-ending , injuries.
