Snow Blower Injury Claims on the Rise
Technological advances in snow plow science have produced a variety of miniature tractors and trucks designed to operate on sidewalks. These all-terrain vehicles are equipped to efficiently remove fallen snow from the sidewalk in front of commercial buildings.
These powerful trucks are often equipped with snow blowers that blast snow in all directions. The mini snow plow trucks use a large roller brush to dig up and blast away snow and ice.
The large roller brush is shaped like a steamroller. However, instead of having a smooth roller, the roller is loaded with firm bristles similar to those on a toothbrush.
These snow blowers create a fog of snow that pedestrians and motor vehicles must pass through.
