Lawnmower Injuries

As millions of Americans continue to choose to mow their own yards rather than retaining a professional service, roughly 20 million small engine lawnmowers are sold in the United States every year. Mowing the lawn can be a source of relaxation, or it can be a critical part of achieving a certain look with one’s yard. Unfortunately, the task is inherently dangerous, and is made unacceptably so in the case of a manufacturer’s negligence in the design, crafting, or assembly of a lawnmower.

The speed and force of the sharp lawnmower blades has the potential to result in devastating injuries in the event of a defect or malfunction. You shouldn’t have to suffer financially because of a person or company’s negligent actions.

Lawnmower Safety Tips

In the year 2010, close to 247,000 Americans were treated for some type of lawnmower-related injury. Lawnmower injuries are very common among young children who are learning to operate one for the first time. In fact, of the these injuries, 18,000 of them came from children under the age of 18. To stay safe while using a lawnmower, remember the following:

  • Never operate a mower without knowledge of how it works.
  • Do not operate the mower over concrete or anything else besides grass.
  • Do not use mower on steep inclines.
  • Children should never use a mower without proper supervision.
  • Only one person should ride on a riding lawnmower at a time.
  • Never leave a running mower unattended.

You cannot always prevent injuries because of manufacturing errors, but you can reduce your risk of injury by remembering the above.
