If You’ve Lost a Limb in a Lawn Mower Accident, All Hope Is Not Lost
Riding lawn mowers are one of the most common consumer purchases in large parts of the country. They’ve been in regular use for decades, and many of the accidents of the past have been studied, leading to improved safety features that greatly eliminate the risk of serious injury. However, the unfortunate truth is that a lawn mower manufacturer will often ignore these safety features to save a few dollars during production.
Many lawn mower manufacturers are guilty of not providing basic safety guards. Husqvarna, John Deere, Kubota, and Murray are just a few of the manufacturers that have had lawsuits brought against them in the past. Our attorneys at Doyle Law are familiar with all of these cases and understand their common causes, such as:
- The lack of an automatic blade shut-off when the mower is going in reverse
- No kind of rollover protection, such as a lap restraint or rollover bar, that keeps the rider from being pinned under the mower
- The lack of a tethered kill switch, which would automatically turn the blades and engine off if the rider was thrown from the mower
Because the manufacturer cut corners, a tragic accident occurred. If this is what happened to you, our team at Doyle Law can help you get the compensation you deserve. You can help make sure that companies are held accountable for their products.
