Industrial portable corrals are used to cattle, horse, and hog confinement. They are also used in poultry production, beekeeping, horticulture, and forestry. Portable corrals are made out of a variety of materials, including metal, wood, and plastic. They can be raised or lowered using hydraulic jacks.
Portable corrals are a popular way to keep animals confined, but they can be dangerous if not used properly. Here are four ways portable corrals can go wrong:
1. Poor construction – Portable corrals are often cheaply made and may not be sturdy enough to hold animals safely. Make sure the structure is well-built and designed to prevent accidents.
2. Inadequate space – Portable corrals should have enough space for the number of animals being confined, as well as enough room to move around. If there’s not enough space, the animals may become cramped and stressed, leading to accidents.
3. No escape route – If there’s no way out of the portable corral, the animals (and persons) inside may become trapped if something goes wrong. Make sure the structure has an escape route in case of emergencies.
4. No fencing – Animals may get out of a portable corral if it doesn’t have fencing around it. Make sure the structure is secure by installing fencing or else the animals could escape and cause accidents.
If you have been injured by a portable corral, it is important to speak to an attorney right away. An attorney can help you file a claim and make sure that you get the compensation that you deserve.
