    How to claim lawn mower injury compensation


    A lawn mower can be seen in use in many gardens up and down the country throughout the warmer months. Come October they go into the shed or garage for another year, and when March comes around we wait for a good day’s weather to head out and give the lawn its first trim of the year.

    Most of the time the mowers are in great condition and make light work of whatever grass needs to be cut. However every mower has its life, and you may find it necessary to go out and buy a new one at some point. If this should happen you have every right to expect that mower to be in excellent condition, since you will be using it new out of the box.

    Electric or petrol-operated

    There are two main types of mowers you can get. Some are connected to the electricity supply by way of a plug and lead. Others have a petrol tank you can fill and can be operated as such, without the need for a plug and lead. This means you can take them further afield – ideal if you have a big property.

    Either way, buying a brand new mower means it will be under guarantee. You would also expect it to have been checked so you know it is safe to use. If you suffer an injury through no fault of your own, because something was wrong with the mower, you might be able to claim lawn mower injury compensation.

    How easy is it to claim lawn mower injury compensation?

    It all depends on what happened. If you can show you followed the instructions in the proper manner and order, and something still went wrong with the mower to cause you injury, you might well have the opportunity to claim compensation. The manufacturer has a duty of care to ensure everyone who uses their products can do so safely. If this isn’t the case, it could end up leading to injuries for one or more people who are using them.
