Injured Patients May Be Entitled to Compensation

If there are risks present that could potentially cause harm to consumers, it is the duty of lawnmower manufacturers to warn the public. Failure to fulfill these duties could result in lawnmower manufacturers being held liable for injuries to the user.
Patients who are injured by lawnmowers may be entitled to compensation, which can include:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income or ability to work
- Pain and suffering
If death occurs as a result of operating a lawnmower, family members may be entitled to compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one, including:
