Corn pickers and shellers are machines used to pick and shear corn. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be used in both commercial and industrial settings. Corn pickers are typically mounted on an articulated arm, which allows them to move along the rows of corn. Shellers use blades to shear the corn kernels from the stalk.
If you are ever unfortunate enough to experience an accident involving a corn picker or shelling machine, be aware that there are several types of accidents that can occur. Here is a look at each one:
Picking Accident: In this type of accident, the operator becomes entangled in the machine’s picking mechanism, causing them to lose control and fall to the ground. This can lead to serious injuries, including spinal cord injuries and paralysis.
Shelling Accident: In this type of accident, the operator is picking corn while the machine is still shelling it. This can lead to the machine cleaning out the ear of corn too quickly, which can cause the operator to lose their balance and fall. If they are not wearing safety gear, they can also be injured by contact with the sharp shells.
If you have been injured by someone using a corn picker or sheller, you should contact an attorney. These machines can be very dangerous and if you are hurt, you may be entitled to compensation. An attorney can help you evaluate your case and ensure that you receive the maximum compensation possible.
