Accident Information

THESE INJURIES ARE NOT YOUR FAULT!

  • On the average of once a day, little children, typically age 2-5, are backed over and catastrophically injured by the rotating blades of a riding lawnmower.
  • Almost all of these children will suffer long-term medical complications from the blade contact injuries.
  • Almost all of these children will suffer long-term social and psychological complications from the blade contact injuries.
  • The operator of the riding lawnmower is usually a parent, grandparent, sibling, relative or neighbor of the injured child.
  • The social and psychological consequences on the operator of the riding lawnmower and the family of the riding lawnmower back-over victim are also devastating.
  • The resulting injuries and medical complications and social and psychological consequences suffered by the victims and their families could have easily been avoided.
  • The manufacturers of riding lawnmowers had the capacity to install simple and inexpensive “No Mow In Reverse” safety features to prevent these injuries.
  • “No Mow In Reverse” safety features prevent the riding lawnmower blades from rotating while the machine is backing up in reverse.
  • Riding lawnmower manufacturers have known that these injuries were occurring for over thirty years, but failed to install “No Mow In Reverse” safety features in their products until recently.
