Defective Lawn Mowers
A study by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health estimated that almost 80,000 Americans suffer from injuries caused by defective products, including lawn mowers. Most of the injured were children 15 and younger and adults age 60 and older. Most lawn mower injuries require hospitalization for 10 to 24 days and can result in multiple surgical procedures and even amputation.
The dangers of a defective lawn mower include fires caused by defective fuel lines, roll over accidents, throwing of rocks and debris at bystanders. If the lawn mower does not have a back-over safety device that stops the blade from rotating when the mower backs up, it can be dangerous especially for children who are following the mower. If the blades of the lawn mower are defective, they can break off and injury bystanders.
