The Fresno Scraper was invented over one hundred years ago. Their history is tied to the Fresno farm area of California and the San Joaquin Valley. Though it was invented long ago, it was revolutionary for its time and has impacted the design of almost all other earth-moving machines since. Fresno scrapers are very effective pieces of equipment that are efficient to use. These machines cause serious and catastrophic injuries every year across California. Accidents happen on farms due to negligent acts, coworker accidents, poor communication, bad planning, jobs being rushed, people cutting corners, and many other reasons. Keeping track of the facts, evidence, and circumstances regarding your injury is important. Get in touch with an Orange County Fresno Scraper injury lawyer today if you have a case.
The main purpose of Fresno scrapers is to move earth, clay, and soil in a more efficient method than otherwise. It even had a role in the scraping and carving of the Panama Canal. It is designed to not only scrape a certain amount from the top of the earth but also to discharge the dirt, as it goes, at a certain depth. This allows it to empty part of its hopper as it does its works (decreasing the total amount of work that needs to be done). The C-shaped bowl inside the Fresno scraper is what controls the movement of the soil or clay.
Fresno scraper injuries could be serious. Some injuries that Fresno scrapers have caused include eye injuries, concussions, brain injuries, becoming deformed, wrongful death, amputation, head injuries, ligament sprains, electrocution, being crushed, ear injuries, muscle strains, deep cuts, bone bruises, twisted ankles, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and more. The victim will recover better from the majority of these injuries if they get medical treatment sooner rather than later.
Fresno scrapers may seem harmless to the average person but they are actually very dangerous. Some of the most typical causes for Fresno scraper accident injuries are from Fresno scrapers being overloaded by either trying to scrape too much or having too much in the hopper, Fresno scraper brakes or stopping mechanisms not working, operators not paying attention, Fresno scraper colliding with trees, tree stumps, boulders, animals, farm equipment, water pipes, oil pipes, gas pipes, electrical wires, construction equipment, and buildings, defective brakes, Fresno scrapers being used negligently or overused, Fresno scraper going too fast, Fresno scraper operators being drunk, Fresno scraper operators view blocked, and Fresno scraper operator being distracted by texting, cell phones, walkie talkie, bad weather or coworker conversations.
