There are a countless number of sights, smells, and sounds associated with the spring and summer months. From the smell of barbeques on warm nights to seeing children playing in front yards, warmer weather also brings out the sounds of lawn mower engines and the smell of fresh-cut grass that seems to fill every part of a neighborhood. Unfortunately, using a lawn mower can also be extremely dangerous, especially if any part of a lawn mower proves to be defective, or if it malfunctions in any way.
Lawn mower injures can be devastating because they typically involve body parts meeting a spinning blade.
