Any type of lawnmower can pose a risk of doing you a nasty injury if you don’t closely follow its usage instructions to the letter. But while the type that you have to push along can be dangerous, ride-on models perhaps pose the greater risk. If you have a large garden, you probably won’t want to have to spend hours over the summer months pushing a standard lawnmower about the place to get your lawn looking ship-shape. Although a lot more expensive to buy, a ride-on lawnmower will most likely save you a substantial amount of time. Time that can be spent on doing something a little more worthwhile.
As mentioned above, you’ll typically have no problems with a ride-on lawnmower as long as you follow its usage instructions. If you fail to do so and end up injuring yourself, you’ll have nobody else to blame. It will be a whole different kettle of fish however if you are done an injury as a result of design fault on a ride-on mower or a some sort of defect.
If this were to happen, there will be a chance that you might be able to take action against the equipment’s manufacturer with the aid of a decent 100% no win no fee* solicitors in Liverpool Street.
