Lawnmower Injuries – They Happen Too Often!

By June 27, 2013Personal Injury

The days of the push mower are long behind us. Practically everyone with a yard, regardless of size, has a power mower to keep their yard neat and attractive.

Unfortunately, lawnmower injuries are occurring more frequently as mowers become more powerful, and have more features and innovations. Lawnmower accidents occur in America on a daily basis. It has been estimated that 70,000-80,000 people a year are injured as a result of lawnmower accidents, and almost 2,000 require hospitalization for serious injuries. There are almost 100 fatalities from lawnmower accidents annually.

Unfortunately, we are learning lawnmowers can be lethal. Often lawnmower accidents are the result of defective design or the failure to have adequate protective devices. Warnings may be insufficient to alert the user of the dangerous aspects of operation.
