Lawn Mower Injuries
While any accident has the potential to cause considerable pain and suffering, recovering from an accident that could have been avoided can seem especially difficult. When someone suffers an injury from a poorly designed or manufactured lawn mower, the results can be devastating. Because of a lawn mower’s components – a sharp blade spinning at a high speed – even a small defect could result in a catastrophic accident.
When lawn mower manufacturers produce faulty products, the consequences could be life-altering for innocent consumers. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a defective lawn mower, contact an experienced San Antonio product liability lawyer of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers today at (210) 999-9999.
Staying Safe While Using a Lawn Mower
To avoid suffering from a number of possible injuries including eye damage, severed body parts, or severe burns, you need to make sure you act responsibly and safely around a lawn mower at all times. To reduce your risk of injury while using a lawn mower, be sure to:
- Read operating manuals and instructions before using
- If you are allowing your child to use the lawn mower, make sure you supervise him or her
- Children under age 12 should never use a mower
- Wear protective eye gear to keep debris out of your eyes
- Never use a mower on any surface besides grass
Unfortunately, even if you follow all of these safety precautions, you may still be injured if the lawn mower you are using is defective in any way.
If you have been injured by a faulty lawn mower, it is important that the company that produced it is held responsible for their negligence. For more information, contact the San Antonio dangerous products attorneys of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers at (210) 999-9999.
