According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 80,000 Americans report to emergency rooms each year because of lawn mower injuries. Related research suggests that over 4,000 of those injuries occur to children. These numbers do not even include unreported injuries, and injuries caused by other lawn and garden equipment.
While lawn mowers and outdoor equipment can pose certain inherent risks, defects in design and manufacture, as well as insufficient warnings, account for many serious and deadly injuries each year. Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA’s product liability attorneys take these injuries seriously.
