Lawn Mower Injury Attorneys
Everyone wants their lawn to look great, especially in the spring and summer. That means that using a lawn mower is essential. While cutting the grass is relaxing for some and dull for others, one thing that they don’t often consider is just how dangerous lawn mowers can be. Lawn mower injury, some of which are catastrophic, occur more frequently than you might think.
In a 2015 report, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) stated that nearly 82,000 people suffered injuries related to lawn mowers and lawn tractors, many of them children. If you or a family member has been seriously injured by a lawn mower, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury – especially if the machine was found to be defective or not functioning properly. Our lawn mower injury attorneys will begin an immediate investigation into the situation that caused the injury to see if the machine was defective.
COMMON LAWN MOWER INJURY
A lawn mower can cause injuries to both the person using it and anyone near it. For example, because the blades of a powered push lawn mower spin at very high speeds, it can cut or completely cut off fingers and toes. A riding lawn mower can overturn and crush the driver, resulting in serious injury or even death. Additionally, lawn mower blades can propel rocks or other objects on the ground at a high rate of speed, causing injury to whomever is in the path of the object. Lawn mowers can also cause serious burns when gasoline is added to an already hot motor or if there is a design flaw in the fuel system.
Some of the common types of injuries caused by lawn mowers include:
- Injuries to the eyes, including blindness
- Traumatic brain injury
- Serious cuts or lacerations
- Serious burns
- Broken bones, including cracked ribs
- Muscle and tendon damage
- Mutilation or amputation of fingers, toes, hands, and feet
- Damage to internal organs, for example a lacerated liver or ruptured spleen
- Permanent disfigurement
- Injury to the spinal cord, including paralysis
- Vascular damage
All of the above injuries can occur when lawn mowers are used in an unsafe or careless manner. However, they can also happen when lawn mowers have defective safety features that are either inadequate or they fail to work. These types of injuries are foreseeable and usually preventable.
WHO IS LIABLE FOR LAWN MOWER INJURY?
Legal responsibility for injuries that result from lawn mower use depends upon the specific circumstances of the injury. In some circumstances, defective or malfunctioning conditions in a lawn mower create strict liability. Defects might include how the lawn mower is made or designed, or a lack of sufficient instructions and warnings that alert consumers of potential dangers.
COMMON LAWN MOWER DEFECTS
Although there are many ways that a lawn mower can be defective or malfunctioning, the following are some of the most common flaws:
- Defects that occur during manufacturing
- Defects in the design of the lawn mower
- Improper or insufficient warning labeling·
- Rollover defects – riding lawn mowers that overturn easily
- Parts that break easily
- Lack of proper or insufficient instructions
- Defective fuel system
- Defective blades
Manufacturing defects can cause catastrophic injuries to lawn mower operators, including death. Aside from operator error, lawn mower manufacturers have an obligation to make products that are safe. However, in order to be able to lower the price of some lawn mowers – especially the more expensive riding mowers – many manufacturers fail to provide the proper safety devices that will reduce the potential for injuries.
