You have mowed the lawn at your Arlington Heights, Berwyn, or other Chicago-area home hundreds of times without incident. During the spring and early summer, it feels like you are constantly out there cutting the grass. This chore will stay with you until the first frost of fall.
One of those risks is the danger of having a limb amputated. According to the non-profit Amputee Coalition:
To illustrate the dangers associated with lawn mowers, consider that the mowing season is just getting started. Yet, as of May 21, 2014, St. Louis Children’s Hospital has already had three amputations, or near amputations, from lawn mowing accidents.
We share these statistics with you to let you know about the dangers associated with this routine chore. However, if you or your child is hurt in a lawn mower accident, the statistics don’t matter very much. If it is you or your child, the only statistic that matters is your single injury.
