Lawn Mower Defects

While lawn mowers are very useful machines for keeping lawns looking their best, if a lawn mower is designed or manufactured poorly, a person could suffer very serious injuries. Young children are particularly at risk for sustaining devastating injuries from lawn mowers; in 2010 alone, 17,000 children in the U.S. were treated for lawn mower-related injuries. However, defective lawn mowers can be just as dangerous to adults. When lawn mowers are designed or produced poorly and cause injuries to unsuspecting individuals, those who are responsible need to be held accountable for their negligence.

Lawn mower safety features have become much more advanced in the last decade, but unfortunately, even lawn mowers with these safety features can cause devastating injuries if they malfunction in any way. Injuries resulting from lawn mower defects can cause both short-term and long-term injuries, and in severe cases, these injuries may be fatal. Some of the most unfortunately common injuries caused by defective lawn mowers include:

  • Deep and severe lacerations

  • Burn injuries from the engine
